that happened to my friend yesterday and was making his motor run like crap, it looked as though the filter was falling apart!

Satoch-Its not the people behind me that are causing it its from the hard hits to the "FRONT" end. Problem solved, so I dont have to worry about anyboy passing. NO-NO! lol.
The plastic insert on the Fioroni piece costs more than the King Headz piece. Fioroni sure is $proud$ of thier stuff.

Yes, the Fioroni pieces are definitely sweet but me poor right now so Im gonna have to wait. So you have the ones for the front, right? How does that work? adjustable? must be a good option to have to work with.

Also running the M2C plates on both ends of the car. What does adding the weights to the rear do for the car? I have them, but haven't tried them yet.

It should give you more forward traction.

Straightline, that'd be great. But, would it give you more on-power push coming out of a turn? That wouldn't be so good, need more on-power steering as it is.

I personally love the M2C weights. It seems that the buggy is more planted.

The rear end doesn't wash out during cornering any more. It's much stablier during breaking and cornering. I put the whole 1oz on it and went from there. If the track's got good bite and your rear end is getting too much bite you can remove a 1/4oz of weight at a time to keep the front end from pushing to a minimum.

This may sound stupid to all of you that got the experience building the 8ight.

I can't get the steering servo in place, it is an ACE 1015, way to tight and the servo wire gets in the way if I try to push it in place.

What is the trick?

Thanks

team dremel!!!! FTW

you need to dremel a couple mm's on both sides of the radio tray for the servo to fit in.

Yep, that's probably the best way. I actually got mine to fit without the dremel, but the heat sink fins took some plastic with them. So I basically crammed it in there. My 8 needed this servo from the beginning. It turns so well, that I would get in trouble with slower servos. With the speed of this one I could correct in the middle of a turn and end up looking like I was driving good.

Guys, I've stripped both of my clutch pins that came with my RTR when I was trying to replace the RTR aluminum clutch. Do you guys have any ideas on how to remove the pins? The guy who made the rtr kit must screw the pins ridiculously tight and added too much loctite PLEASE HELP!

THanks

once again team dremel FTW lol.
take a cut off wheel and dremel a slot in the head of the clutch pins, then heat up the pins with a lighter to break down the locktite on them a little and it will com off with a flat head screw driver.

I have been running m2c soft light shoes with green and gold springs on a vspec. getting arround 2 gallons of life out of then with good smooth feel.
