Right here:

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...oducts_id/9124

I run mine with a JP-2...it's as fast as any motor on a tight and technical track like ours. It also has very impressive top end, hanging with many of the more expensive motors all the way down the longest straight section...

For what you get, it's still a deal. If you're new you got a quality radio that will get you a long way that would cost you more than the 50 bucks. sure, it's not the best radio possible but for a novice that is a really really good entry level bit of electronics.

If you'd bought the kit you'd still need 2 servos, the radio and receiver, battery, engine, and pipe. Which is well over $1000.

Some tracks are very strick about the .21 engine limit but not usually in the NOVICE class. I would think most places would let you run novice but not the more advanced classes.

And if it wasn't clear, the 427 is a .26 cc displacement (I believe) versus the race standard of a .21 cc displacement block.

to be honest i dont know why, something like its a big engine and some of the other classes dont let them run it and the novice class has a limit. my plan is to hopefully not have to run in novice anyways. ive been running electric for a month now and definitely improved and have been making a-main in modified truck and placing like 5th or worst but ive been beating alot of the guys that have been there for years.so im kinda diggin it. but im not a jerk about it even though a few people get heated but hey im in it for the fun.for me anyways. so im just gonna practice with the mach 427 and definitely get something better. either th os 21 vg or that novarossi one.

The kings head clutches will work great. I am running aluminum all the way around with 2 gold and 2 silver springs. I like how the clutch responds with this setup. You could just pick up a set of the stock motor mounts for the kit version of the 8ight. The cheapest place to find the motor mounts I know of is at Bmain racing. Look under the liquidation section.

FYI.. for anyone interested in replacing your stock Losi shock standoffs with something a little more ridgid. Lunsford racing is developing a new stronger standoff for the 8ight and will be available in the near future.

If you needed a radio the rtr is still a pretty good way to go, like everyone said they should let you run the rtr motor.

Rex

Some of my Novas are Top and some are Rex. Feel free to use either, they are pretty much the same, parts interchangable and what not. Novas are really good as far as power and usually hold a tune really well. Good luck.
