Try Green front springs/Silver rear springs. 2.3mm sway bars all around. Also try the upper camber link holes on the shock towers. I feel this really numb's the car a bunch. But also try the other suggestions as well in the previous posts. Those are good ideas.

I run 4 KH 7075 shoes with green and gold springs and I love it with my Ninja...I got 3 gallons on them before I replaced them.....I could have stretched them another gallon, but decided to swap em out...they are the only shoes I will run (the stock ones lasted less then a gallon)

i second that, i put the 7075's on my car this weekend with green/black springs and the car was awsome, acceleration was much smoother. i was blaming the sluggish takeoff to my low speed needle being a little off.....here it was the stock clutch slipping slightly after about a gallon of fuel.....well worth the $23 in my opinion!!

Also try lowering the car. I find that the 8 likes to have a lower ride height than most cars. Im currently running 27mm in the front and 26mm in the rear. Mesured with wheels/tires on the car and sliding shock clips from a Kyosho that are glued together under the buggy. Ive got clips that mesure all the way from 25mm to 30mm. Come's in handy in a pinch...

Heres a few pics of my 8ight. The body woth green is the one I just raced and is a little dirty, the other one is brand new I just have to finish dremeling it then shoe-goo it, oh and stickers for both and the wing. But I love this buggy. I had this buggy flying yesterday. I run a Go Tech .21 with King Headz 7075 shoes with 2 gold/2 silver springs with JP-2 pipe. Love it!

Damo, with the RB WS7 being a top end motor try like a 5,5,3 diff oil front to rear. I will calm the car down a lot. Try the 14 tooth bell also if you're running a 13T now it will mellow the bottom a little... Put the throttle trigger back on your radio and throw the toggle switch in the trash...

If you run the 3 and 3 block the car will square up a little better. Plus you can try to move your rear hubs forward a little to get more weight over the rear axles and give more forward bite...

Thumbs up

I run the KH 7075 shoes on the Losi clutch when I use it. It is much better than the stock shoes. I run:
Gold/Black for all 4 Alum shoes in very limited traction.

Silver/Gold for 3 Alum and 1 carbon on the gold for dry good bite.

All silver springs on 3 alum and 1 carbon shoe for moist dirt (that won't pack the tire)with good bite.

All Silver with 4 alum for sticky stuff.

These seem to work great and the shoes last forever.
Still trying new things all the time.
TEX


Thumbs up to the KH shoes with the Losi clutch.

I just ran my new OS V-SPEC W.C. engine this weekend. HOLY CRAP. It was Singing. Will need to soften up the clutch a little, even though I am pretty easy on the throttle control, but not all the time. I ran 4 Losi alu. shoes with all Gold springs. Will try the 1 carbon shoe. Sounds like the hot ticket. Will also get some KH shoes once I use up the Losi shoes.

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
I had this same problem and moving the rear hubs forward and lowering the rear ride height fixed it for me. I have one spacer it front and two in the rear of the hub. This car is really sensitive to ride height adjustments too.

Quick question. Will the pins in the CV coupling set part # losa3523 work in the front driveshaft that goes between the front and center diff. Had a pin thrown out and the driveshaft is still in good condition.

I've heard some bad things about the TKO start plate. But has anyone ever used this one?

Hi

Sorry for late reply was away - really like the OS am using the RB 2045 pipe with it (also run WS7 x 3) theres plenty of punch and good run time. Will be back to backing the 2 engines next week.

The RB feels smoother on pick up but the OS is an ANIMAL!!!!!

No. Those are for the CV's at the wheels. The pin is held in by the bearing. On the center CV's there is a set screw. So the pin is slightly different.
