Ghost - Are you SURE that parts failure could've have been caused by a not-tight screw, or cracked and injured from an earlier accident.

You can't drive it like your old car...because it's not your old car. Take a deep breath and re-learn 1/8th scale off-road, and you'll find that the car can be driven hard, just not like your "other" buggy.

Don - Did you find what might've caused it?

No, I am building the car. It came that way out of the package.

Well I only wrecked like 4 times and they were not hard I just didn't think that was bad to run three 10 min heats. But what's up with the alum bracces I can see from my body that I'm getting flex.

Also what shock set up are you guys running I'm getting more of a skip to mine on blown out tracks where I seen one guy's 8ight run so smooth over the same part.

Sounds weird, but limit your travel on blown out tracks. (droop screw)

Well what shock oil should I run I seen where one guy was running green springs front and rear and his looked pretty good. I couldn't ask anyone about set between running two classes and pitting.

Could be how you are building your shocks. You can build a shock with 35wt oil and 55 piston and it handle the track differently from the next guy's just because you may have built it with more or less rebound than the other racer.

Don - Not a problem, glad you got taken care of. Who did you talk to?

jlo - I included a couple possible setup alternatives in my PM to you. I don't think caster is the adjustment you're looking for.

Ghost - It's always possible that something went wrong in the manufacturing of the part that broke, but I have yet to hear any of those kinds of stories so far with the 8IGHT stuff. I hear the "I barely crashed!" line all the time..but parts crack in big wrecks, and then break at very weird times. Also, if a screw came loose (or wasn't tight enough to begin with) it will put added stress on certain parts.

Like what was said, your shocks may have too much rebound, or you may need to limit your droop, which will stop the tires from falling into the holes and keep the car flat. Try messing around with both of these variables and see what works best for you. I am running 40 wt. with 54's in the front and the stock pistons with 37.5 in the rear right now, with stock springs.

It may also be how you're driving. Try to hit rough sections of the track with speed and maintain a constant speed through the bumps. This will allow your suspension to travel freely.

I talked to Bill. Helpful and said the part would ship out this morning. Do you know if that would come from Chino or Horizon? Just wondering if if I might see it tomorrow. I would like to get the car together and run it this weekend.
