Yeah that looks great. I take it that you are the one making those skins? I was just checking out that site for the first time.

Just got mine done last night and broke the engine in. Gonna hit the track tomorow for some test runs.

Novarossi plus 21-5
9886 pipe, short header
Futaba 9351's throtle and steering
HT Batteries 1500mAh LIPO reciver pack and voltage regulator
Spektrum reciver
Proline wing





I'm also using a OFNA universal starter box, the narrow black one with twin motors. After you turn the starter wheel assmbly 90 degrees to fit an 1/8 scale it lines up nicely with the 8ight chassis. I shaved the wheel down a little and it works realy nice. It has a smaller diamater wheel than the boxes with the single big 12V motor, so it fits the small slot for the 8ights flywheel better.

I also was a little leary of the clunk in the fuel tank being able to pick up the last bit of fuel. On the last tank of break in, I wasn't watching and ran it out of fuel. When I opened the lid all I saw was fumes! It got every last drop out of that tank. Just make sure the clunk flops around freely and it should work great.

Has anyone ran this on a loose track yet? The ones I have seen can't seem to get the rear to settle down. Anyone else having that problem?

Yes most are. Some are saying the CVD's need to break in. I don't buy that one myself. A better theory would be the kit comes stock with a 14 tooth bell and an aggressive clutch setup. I'm leaning towards softening the punch with a different clutch spring setup and also going to a 13 tooth clutch. Should really help with wheelspin IMO

I think that it's more that nobody has developed a different setup yet. They all are using the Travis/Drake setup and there are plenty of things that can be changed about that setup to quiet down the rear end. While I don't buy the CVD thing I can see the diffs needing a few tanks to settle in. My seals are pretty tight and the 7k oil in the middle diff feels like 10k right now. Much heavier feel than the 7k I am running in my Mugen.

Mine came with two full sets of clutch springs, but only one set is mentioned in the instructions. Does anyone know wich are heavier/stiffer?
