The Mugen hubs go on in such a way they almost seem made for the car. If you were having a hard time making maximum width you can just run 1mm on each side. That puts my car at 310mm width. I've never been teched to 310mm width, but you would still notice the 2mm width change even though it doesn't sound like much.

Thanks for the Kyosho numbers guys, that's what we were looking for to try.

Thanks again, Chad

Which way do you install the shock spring cups to prevent them from popping off? I have lost a couple on the front. Right now I have the slot/tab on shock end facing out from body. Is that right?

Default bottom shock caps

Point the opening to the bottom shock caps toward the wheels not toward the inside. If you don't they can pop off.

I just purchased an 8ight and it should be in next week sometime I am guessing...I just have a couple questions.

1) I have the ofna chrome top starter box and I was wondering if you can use it with this buggy? I know when it first came out there were some problems but is there a mod or a fix to it?

2) This question is about the King Headz clutch shoes...what is the difference of them over the std Losi ones? Just the grade of aluminum used? Can I just swap different shoes out or do I need a different fly wheel for king headz ones over stock losi ones?

Thanks,
Aaron

It'll work, but you may need to cut the rubber wheel a bit to fit in the 8ight's tiny flywheel opening. You may also need to dremel the chassis a bit.

They work with the stock flywheel, and yes, they are just a different grade of metal, and practically identical to the stock shoes.

I use the same starter box and it works fine, but I did have to dremel the chassis to get it to work. The KH 7075 shoes work great!! They are supposed to be made out of the same material as the new Losi blue 7075 shoes, but they seem to last a LOT longer. I have almost 2 gallons on mine now and I should get another gallon out of them...my stock losi shoes were toasted in a gallon (the composite ones and the blue aluminum ones). I did deburr the KH shoes about 1/2 gallon ago..
