So thats the new trick to winning races, a "STEPSTOOL"
Now Im gonna have to use one and see how I do. I thought it was for the younger kids to stand on, now I know the secret. No wonder why all the Pro Drivers looked like NBA Basketball players, the "STEPSTOOL"
Watch, its gonna be the new thing, you'll soon see people having matching decals on their stepstools too.LOL.

The car has about a 1/2 gallon or so through it. This just sucks b/c my last 8ight was freakin awesome right out of the box, and well, this one isn't. I guess all I can do is run it some more and hope it gets better. I just wish I would have never sold my other one. But I have done everything to make this car better but with either no or minimal luck. I guess I am just going to have to run it more and "break it in."

Amen brother! You know, I've grown so tired of people saying, "you're so tall, could you reach up there and grab that for me?" I swear, next time I drop something I'm calling freefallmarine to come and pick it up for me!

Oh yeah, 6'3 here as well. I am my own step stool! I also like to use a stool, I do it so the short guys continue to struggle with their height complex.

Default New engine

I have been thinking about buying a Fantom Radical 621T .21 engine for the Losi 8ight.

Does anyone use that engine? opinions?
What pipe would you use? a fantom or a JP2?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts

My pit buddy has been running this motor for about 3 gallons now and is very happy with it. He is using the pipe that radical sells & likes that as well. I have run his car many times and can say it has great torque & solid top end too.
