DO NOT tape buggy tires. I use to tape my truggy tires but stopped that as well as I found it affected my corner speeds and the way the tire handled the bumps. Nothing really wrong with a tire balloning a little on the straightaway... If there aballoning allot then your centre diff oil is probably to thin

I haven't seen or heard of anyone breaking shafts yet on the 8ight. How did you do that? Stockers are fine, either something bad must have happenned or you got a weak one.

Rich, I broke a shaft the first time out also, it was wierd because i just caught a rut while turning left and the car rolled and broke the outside right shaft. The wheel must have had a good grip on something when i applied thottle to keep it from flipping. I do hope mip come's out with something stronger for me. I do drive a little aggresive.

Supermaxx, I was just getting some practice laps in when I broke it. To be honest with you I dont even know when it broke cuz the car was driving so good I just noticed when I got to the rythem section I lost all power.

hi guys ive just ordered my losi 8 pro and looking at engines, ive seen the sirio engines at pretty good prices and wanted to know which one is better, theres a sirio #s21 bk kanai evo 2(with 2 carb adjustments) and #s21 bk kanai evo2 sti(but only 1 carb adjust).
i thought the sti one would be better but 1 carb ajust seems less profesional that the 2, any opinions?
