Electrical tape should work fine, but if you can get some shrink wrap that you normally find on the stick packs, that'll be even better.

Eric, shouldn't you be working on a Dairy now, and not surfing the web.....

I would really like to get those Hudy, but I can't afford $125.00 now. I still have everything else to get remeber...

BTW, I did buy that Pro kit 8IGHT today for $450.00. Paying no sales Tax and shipping was nice too. I will call you Monday. Maybe you and Dino will be working in your garage on your nitro's.

A local guy bought the kit and then had some personal matters come about. B-main has some pretty good prices on the losi 8ight.

You should shrink wrap them or bag them to keep the cells apart. I tookout everything but the bottom holding tray. I tie wrapped the batteries in place after I covered each with a thick plastic bag. They are just stacked on top of each other. Once a month I'll pull them out and balance them then charge them up.

The OS VG is a very good motor. It has impressed a lot of people around here. At the Futaba challenge Second in PRO, TQ in expert and the guy that won expert were all running the VG. It is no slouch.
Also there is the Nova 3 port motor and the Sportworks 21 V2. These are all excellent motors that I am familiar with. I run my old OS RG in the car and it does great.

Check out the Kyosho box. I heard it is perfect. I just ordered one from SpeeedTechNitro.com. It was like $69 bucks.

The 7000 in the back gives more traction coming out of corners , and less steering going in than the stock 2000. I dont like a alot of steering , so it just suites my driving style. The 5000 in the middle just calms the car down motor wise so its not so punchy.Oh yeah and thanks!
I'm faxing my setup to Tom Robertson today.

Tex,
Quincy was not running a VG. Know the facts before you post. Ty and I were running VG's.

Has anyone developed a high traction indoor setup for the 8ight yet? I know Allen Horne won the fall race at Liesure Hours in Illinois with his 8ight but no setup has been posted that I have seen anywhere.
