Losi's setup sheets include droop measurements that are derived from putting the chassis on blocks and then measuring from shock mount to shock mount, using the middle of the screw on both the arm and the shock tower as your reference points.

I just got finished with my 8 and now am ready to purchase the engine / pipe...

I was thinking about the Picco P7R....

Can you guys tell me what the difference is between these two engines and which one I should get???

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXJRX0&P=0

This one is listed as .21 Picco O-1BP What does the O-1BP mean???
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXPUZ3&P=0

Also, what pipe would you guys run????? The local track is medium size and alot of turns...
The second engine you listed there as 0-1BP is the newer version of the first one you listed. Its called the EVO2, im not sure what the differences between the two. For a pipe, i would run a JP-3 with it.

I'll be at the Porter, TX race at Mike's. I'm only about 30 min away from it.

I'm hearing that they are expecting 200-250 entries. That seems like WAY too much action for me so i think I might just go out there on Friday for practice and see how nuts it's gonna be.

The one thing that was not brought up was to decrease the droop of the rear shocks. This will lower the amount of weight that gets shifted on the front of the buggy when braking. I would just setup the car with the Adam Drake THE DIRT setup and go from there.

Decrease means to tighten (clockwise). The droop adjustment screw just is a adjustable bumpstop. You need to make the screw protrude further out the bottom of the arm to decrease the droop (less travel).

the spring on your throttle looks like its about to bind. I bet its pretty close to binding if not binding when you put the brakes on. I'd cut the ball cup down 3-4mm at least. Maybe even shorten the spring.....

Yes,

You do not have the updated ball cup. CUT the ball cup end to keep binding!!!!

That would have been another throttle servo story for sure. Good catch SuperMaxx.

And maybe I just have bad luck, but my very first run with my 8ight with the personal transponder mounted to the top of the radio tray I took I hit on the side that broke one of the transponder mounting ears off.

I then noticed that Rich had his PT mounted to the bottom of the radio tray using those exact same holes. It's MUCH more protected down there. I highly recommend it (and thank Rich for the idea).

Mounted on top, the PT extends over the side of the radio tray and can pretty easily take a direct hit with nothing but the flimsy body to protect it, but mounted to the bottom it's protected by the chassis mud guards and close proximity to the chassis.
