We've been using the spring from a cheap clicker type pen in between the brakes for about 10 years. Cut it in half.

The Jammin is a great car, but after driving both, I prefer the 8ight. I came from racing on-road, so I prefer a more nimble feel. I've actually converted one jammin owner(Buckshot, he had a Jammin first but after driving my car, he quickly found somebody to buy it, and got an 8ight ) On the flip side, our local track record is held by a jammin...but like all records, it'll be broken before too long...

I agree ,the jammin is tough,if you like the mugen you will like it....
however.......THE 8IGHT ROCKS ,I was an onroad guy ,it feels more like a tourer on dirt....very nimble.I am still trying to get a handle on it--It is FAAASSST out of the box...
I TOO HAVE COME OVER TO THE DARK SIDE...

Has anyone tried the Associated Z.28R Spec 3 motor in the 8ight? I have heard good things about the motor and it has a good price tag ($169)...

Thanks

There are a bunch of guys at our track running them in their 1/8 trucks and man they are fast! I would have to say that in a buggy it would be way to much but I guess if you like insane power go for it.
