Hey Steve thanks, I will fill that in on a blank setup sheet to take with me.

And Shaun I would like to have yours if you could when you get a minute. Pm me here or on the local forum. I think Joe and I are heading down to Columbus the 17th or possibly Fastraxx if they have the new place done.

Thanks everyone, I should have a good start.

Has everyone had a gritty feel between rear pinion gear and rear diff ring gear for the first couple of tanks? Ive ran 3 tanks almost and still have a gritty feeling between the two. Ive taken apart and checked the mesh over and over and its all done correct but no matter what its a little jumpy feeling when you turn wheels with hand. Maybe it just needs more run time to seed in but just didnt feel right.

Does this buggy seem to have any weeknesses thus far? Any parts breaking or wearing out fast?

you should just releive a little material from the bearing insert to increase the gear mesh... use fine drit sand paper.

Could you explain a little more on this, im not understanding how to do this, I do know the gear mesh needs to be increased but relieve material from where to allow more space between the two?

The only thing that is getting to most everybody is the fricken throttle servo is going out. They say it is becasue of to much flex in the chassis or it is overheating. So what alot of people are doing is cutting the throttle linkage spring and putting the alluminum chassis braces on and I am doing all that plus I am putting the kingheadz radio tray stiffiner on. Other than that they are real reliable and real fast buggys I love mine.

Talking cool

Cool now I have a real quick question I am in need of a new starter bx and was wondering if anybody can tell me what starter box you are using for your 8ight and if you could provide me with links and tell me what you had to do for it to fit your 8ight on the box. If so that would be great. Thank you very much I really appriciate it.

Mugen Starter box. no mods needed to make it work! Just line up the opening on your chassis to th wheel and away you go. Plus its the only starter box that has TONS of torque. This is the best place to get it

If it shows out of stock call him up and tell him Richard Infanti sent ya, he'll probably be able to hook you up right quick

Ofna Chrome Top . The box comes with a large wheel that doesn't make for an immediate fit for the 8ights "petite" flywheel opening. You need to shave or file the wheel down on the sides a smidge, and for the first quarter gallon or so the chassis was slowly shaving the wheel down a little farther wherever it glanced. It doesn't hurt to file or dremel the chassis itself, but I'd rather just burn off a little rubber on the starter box than start cutting on that really pretty anodized bit of engineering.

Now may I ask your opinons on the pipes and tell me if you know if the starter box's I post will work on my 8ight and which one would you choose of the three I post if they will work. Here are the starter box's

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/11556
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/2414
PIPES,http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/9005
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/4568
Now I know they are the same both O53 mid range power spand but which one would you pick. It is going to go on my p5 and then on to my novarassi rex .21 when my p5 goes bad. Thank you guys very much I know it may be alot to ask but when every or if you want ot reply that would be great.
