And as for people wondering if the car works on a dusty dry track..YES it does , This track was bone dry and dusty...First time out the car was very loose. I went to the pits and put the thin sway bars in the front and rear and wow It was stuck!!...with just those two adjustments.

Kropy, That is funny!! ... This ones a keeper!
WOW!!!!!!!!! I guess there is a first time for everything. I'm glad to hear you like the car.

Adam,
The red toward the rear has a hint of true fire accented in the red which you can't tell in the pic. The red is actually a combination of Faslucent red and Fasfluorescent red and backed with white.

I have to say that being rather new to 1/8 buggies and running against the other manufactures, this car is fast and nimble right out of the box. Having the only 8ight out at our track, Area52, the Jammin's and Mugens were all playing catchup to the 8ight. Not one of them could keep up.

Waldron-What all have you changed on the car to your liking? I just got the 3' toe and anti-squat plate. Im going to change that, and im running 54-40w up front and 55-35w rear. Ill try it out and see what it does. Have you moved the rear camber link to the inside whole on the rear hub?

What is the majority of setups people are using? Everyone using Travis' setup here or other? I just built mine, all box stock setup using 3K in the rear, thinking about changing the shocks to a 54 piston with 40 up front and leaving the rear as 55/35w. I think the 35w with 55 pistons up front is to soft and haven't even ran it yet.

And here are some more pics of Indaway's 8ight that I painted for him.
