I am almost done putting the kit together, did you guys use the servo spacers. I used the grommets.

Anyone got a good setup for a very loose track?I was struggling to get any power down exiting the corners i was spinning out most of the time.
Would i be better changing the rear diff oil or buying optional squat plates etc (what difference do these optional parts from m2c racing make).

Any help would be much appreciated

Using a lighter clutch spring might help. The power won't be so abrupt. I use two green and two black on our outside track, dusty and hard packed.

Damo you can't go wrong with that M2C toe block that Mitch sells. It's very nice and bind free.

Try running two greens and two silver clutch springs. It will engage a little lower in the power and hopefully reduce your wheelspin a little.

Good luck...

How has the throttle servo's been holding up? I've been talking to people at my local track and they are still burning servos up. It looks like most people here have the problem fixed. Are the people I'm talking to doing something wrong?

Very close to buying an 8ight, that's why I ask.

Thanks,

-Mike

I'm also a believer in the fact that you can't put crappy servos in it. I setup my JR 590 the exact same way I setup the JR 9000T's that are in it now. But I haven't had a single issue with my 9000T's. I'll be putting these things in my 8ight T as well.

Its defiantly how you set up the linkages.A lot of the pictures i have seen of others racers 8ights who are burning servos the linkages look way off.I set my throttle first then adjusted the brake accordingly.

The hole in the servo arm that the thottle shaft slides in seems a little tight and might bind. I'm going to drill mine out, it could be alot bigger and still work fine. We finally had some throttle servo issues yesterday but the servo's work fine today. Are most guys having trouble on really rough tracks? this was the roughest we've raced on so far.

Lighter center diff oil, softer swaybars.
