absolutely, just make sure the new fuel line you use is large enough to seal on the tank

I've been a hardcore Mugen guy for the last couple of years and I'm ready to purchase a new kit for this winter and next year. I'm looking for feedback from a few more people before I make a final decision. My Mbx5 is still very hooked up but there is so much hoopla about this Eight. Losi is a good company, I'm not worried about that. I'm looking to make a call on what to get, just looking for some feedback or pros and cons lets say between the two.

Thanks everyone, Chad

Anyone used the smaller starter boxes with 8th scale buggies in general? Looking at the Team Magic box, or something close to it.. Do these things have the torque to turn over stubborn .21's?

I've been using the cheapo ofna 10th scale box for everything. It has two motors, and plenty of torque for the big blocks.

Good deal, thanks.. My larger ofna box is on its last leg... Looks like most of the smaller boxes wont line up right for the 8ight.

Mine lines up perfect, I don't even have to look, I just drop it on there and fire it off.

mugenchad - There's nothing to worry about. The car is awesome and the company support is second to none. Go ahead and buy one, worry-free! Then put an engine and some electronics in it, and start going faster

FlyByWire - If you don't hear from Horizon regarding your e-mail within a day or two, I'd give them a call. It's just easier that way...you'll know if they got the message, because you'll have talked to someone directly.

What's up guys.......dumb question here....why is everyone calling the losi composite clutch shoes "carbon"? I dont think there is anything carbon about them????? Am I wrong??? If they were carbon we wouldn't need aluminum.

Ok Guys I got it and just finished the front diff and everything lines up perfect but I hear what sounds like gridding in there not hanging up or anything but wanted to know if they need to be broke in.
