OK, I've gone thru 4 gallons now & I'm just starting to get 1 leaky front shock. Other than this (& clutch/ bearings), I have still not broken a single thing. On the servo issue (for guys with the kit), it's the long spring that is the problem. The only thing I did was cut down that spring & set my end points correctly.

Is there a new Part number for the New Losi Blue (7075) shoes. Losa9108 is the part number for the Aluminum shoe(s), but the older one.(silver)

Anyone know the new Part number?

Thanks

Steve

Steve same part number....it is a running change so you will get the correct one when you order the old number. They are working great for me I have put 3 race weekends on them so far with nothing more than inspecting them. They seem to make the carbons last longer as well.

What is the difference in these shoes? I assume they are made of 7075 aluminum, but what do they do different?

yes they are 7075...they last 3 times as long and to me, feel the same as the first ones. The stock clutch set up offers the most punch. Its all a personal preference.

I feel my clutch engages at too high of RPM. I would like it to engage a little sooner. I guess i will try softer springs.

SCUBA STEVE,

I am going up to Fasttrax this weekend if the snow does not come. I was told that Kevin W. and a few other "fast dudes" will be there as well.
You have to check out the WALL at this track, its crazy!

Has anyone used 2 King Headz 7075 shoes and 2 carbon shoes?

Im running the standard setup and was just wondering if anyone else thinks the toe out looks more than 1 out? Maybe Ive just looked at it too much but it looks like more than 1 degree of toe out and my tie rod lengths are exact to the book. I dont have a setup board to verify this so figured Id ask you guys.

weezer....It will look like more because the rear of the car has 3 deg tow in.try to eyeball down from the chassis guards to the front, Keeping the rear out of your sight will play less tricks on your mind.

Default TKO Clutch Bearings

How long can expect to run my TKO clutch bearings? I've already got 2 gallons though the same set of bearings and they still spin fine.

Also after a day of racing or practicing my bearings and the crankshaft have a brown tarnish on them. I have to use a scotchbrite pad to clean it off the crankshaft. Is this burnt oil?

I spray my bearings out with motor spray and put 2 drops of Much More bearing oil on each bearing. Should I be doing something else?

Well I've joined the group. My buddy Brian and i both grenaded throttle servo's at a race yesterday. he with a 358 and I with a 359. linkages were not binding nor was there over epa. The servo was new and there are no markings on the bottom of the servo case or on top of the chassis. it ran for a 5 min qualifier and maybe 3 minutes of warm up befor that. Oh well..the nature of the hobby. I do have some great praise for the 8ight though, man this car is fast! Brian and I are both breaking in some Tko o-rings so the suspension was a little tight. I do recommend getting some 2mm wheel spacers though. We noticed the diffrence immediatley with the rear calming down and the front still having great steering. i just felt more stable on the loose track.
Im going to need some more set up time to really get the most out of this buggy, but if i had to do it again, Id get another 8ight. just my 2cents.
