I'm sure someone will chime in with the number - but if not, I'm sure it would easily be found on the kyosho website. I'm at work or I'd take a look... I shouldn't even be on here.... lol

Just wondering about that legal width question...I sometimes travel to big race where cars are teched.
I think the ball end number is KYO1296...and I probably have some lying around at home from my last buggy (777SP2). Will try them out tonight if I can find some. May need to use the Kyosho balls with them...one models balls may be larger than the others . The inside ball on the steering assembly has that bump steer offset too. I've broken one of those Losi ball ends myself.

The problem with using metric rod ends is that the diameter of the hole for the screw that goes into the arm is different.

It's not a super big deal fellas. Someone told me today Losi has a superduty rod end but I have to do some checking yet to find out for sure. It just seems like a part that shouldn't break and when you're racing you don't need to have that in your mind all the time. Confidence in your car= better finishes.

Hey boys we're on page 100!

Yes and no... every car needs a weak point. Do you want that to be $8 arms... $$$ shock towers... or 75 cent rod ends.

I don't want anything to break, ever. You can't win if you don't finish. $.75 or $8 doesn't matter. (exception-a full speed crash into a wall) If you factor in fuel, entrance fees, gasoline to get to a track, and maybe a hotel it gets damned expensive for every minute spent on the track.

good point XMS but I would rather the stress be placed on an aluminum tower or that arm that is 7mm thick plastic all the way around versus a 1.5-2mm thickness. I think there are better alternatives out there or I think Losi may have already addressed the issue. I'm just trying to come up with a solution is all.

Where is Aaron when we have questions like this. I pmed a Losi sponsored guy I know personally and still haven't heard anything back yet. Hopefully there is a solution and it has a LOSA in front of the number

Man, I'm on page 100 again. Sweet...

I know I broke two of these very early in the season but I haven't broken one since. I think a little bit of it had to do with it being too cold.

Yes the 2mm hubs are Roar legal.Roar rules are 330mm width of the buggy. And the Kyosho part for the rod ends are IFW150 it sucks because it comes with the Kyosho tie rod ,dont use it. just sell it to a 777 driver and make some money back.

I am currently having a few problems with my 8 I hope someone can help me out, If I start the car and run it on the starter box it runs fine but soon as its on the ground if i accelerate then brake hard the engine will stall, I thought it may be the clutch still partly engaged but I am running aloy and carbon shoes with the silver and gold springs which I thought would have been hard enough.
If you have any suggestions please let me know.
Thanks Brendan

I replaced a broken steering rod end with a Jammin one, seems to fit nice.

Might want to check your piston. Sounds like you may have got dirt or trash on the piston and dammaged it a bit.
