Did you break your spur or did it wear out?

Whats up xratededdy?? Its about time you got a real buggy!! So do you like it yet? WHere have you been racing? this weekend? I think some of the bearings need to be looked after every couple of quals, or maybe after every one unless you get some quality bearings.

If you did want the lipo pack and were worried about it being too light and if you have the MR2C 3/3 plates you could get the weights they sell for them. I love them. they really keep the 8ight planted.

Yea but a 1400ma Lipo is like having a 2500ma Nimh pack. I have the HT 1400 pack in my buggy and can get 1.5 hours out of it easily. Servo's stay consistent the whole time as well and the car is balanced a lot better.

Seems like some guys are adding weight to the rear ends of their 8ights, why doesn't somebody make a steel rear brace?

I know this question has been asked before, but it wasn't really clear to me. How do you guys install your fuel filter onto your 8ight B? If possible please post picture and some instructions for it! Thank You

Trebor, I do call you but you never pick up the phone. This weekend, BBQ Bash at Madness, a race not to miss.

You can pit with Team Glitch if you'd like, but dont ask for any autographs.

OK I ordered an new set of rear outer hinge pins and they are on back order. My LHS is out & now I think its too late to order & get them before the weekend. I did a search with no luck but I'm sure I remember someone in this thread saying the used another brand hinge pin succesfully (Mugen maybe?). Does any one have any suggestions for a substitute?

I know that all of the Losi guys at Wolcott are using Mugens inner hinge pins, not too sure about the outer ones though.

I might just make my own.

I have a question about the mach 427

I am running werks racing 30% a mccoy i think medium plug and the thing will only run smoothly at around 300*+ if i get it to run at around the 250 range it is way too fat and is a slug and stalls on me sometimes but if its running good its way too hot...im thinking of running 20% but is there anything else that could help me with my problem?

-Drew

Lower nitro % will only run hotter. Borrow another temp gun because I am betting yours is off. You may find that it is running well at 250-275 and if thats the case, let it run like that. As long as it's blowing smoke off the turns you're ok.

If you are in a pinch for rear outer hinge pins, try these:

http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodId=LOSA5064

They are rear 1/10 Losi shock shafts. They are Ti-nitride and *shouldn't* bend.

I have test fitted one and the first clip is the exact length needed.
However, some might not like the e-clip on one side...

Note I have not track tested them yet, so no idea on the durability, but
they should be better no?

You can probably find them at a LHS... LMK if they work well.
