Ha ha! Sorry Satoch, I didn't mean to come off like a wise a$$. lol You're right, brakes are not where they should be. I once suggested to Nomadio that they use a pressure sensitive switch for their brakes. Something to make it easier to modulate the brakes.

I got that and the engine mount from Qoncepts. VERY nice stuff......it's pricey though. I already ordered two more sets for my 8ight-T

Default Hey guys

Hey guys ok I just got done putting a new throttle servo in my 8ight. I had a guy that has been racing for 14 years help me set it up and he also runs the 8ight. Anyways we put 2 10/0 scale shock o rings made by GS racing they are little blue one's and we put them under the battery box part of the radio tray with a 8/32 by 1/2 inch screw. So we made sure to set the endpoints correct and everything. Now my question is where we put the 10/0 scale shock orings under the battery box is the battery box of the radio tray supposed to move when we give it throttle and brake. That is the only part of the radio tray that moves is the battery box. So is that right.

Hi

I'm jumping ship from electric on-road to ic off-road.

I've decided to go with the Losi 8ight but what engine would be best, I was thinking Novarossi? Also what servo's would be best to get for the throttle and steering?

Thanks

For an engine, Novarossi, RB Concepts, Ninja or any other "good" .21 engine will be great. I personally love my RB Concepts WS7II and S7. Easy as heck to tune, yet ridiculous top end. I have a tight track and it still has excessive torque for it. I could use a little more sometimes, but I think usually that would produce wheelspin.

Personally the 9000t is too slow. You want a min of 100oz/in for a steering servo, and the T is something like 300. Also its a transit time of .15. Go for something with a speed of .10 or faster, and 120-200oz/in is just perfect.

interesting theory. you could be onto something there.

btw....the word is condensation. the process of condensing the moisture in the air into a liquid....that liquid is called condensate.
