You have to create an account and log in to the site. Then you can go to post a setup and click on the 8ight setup sheet. You fill in the boxes and when you get to the bottom, you can either save it into your accounts setup binder, or you can do one time viewing and it will generate the pdf for you. Then just save a copy to your computer and you're good to go.

No problem. I keep records of my setup sheets from every day at the track and have for years. I've made a lot of my own setup sheets on Excel when I couldn't find an editable version like this.

Default Race Roller vs Kit?

Any one know the differences between the Losi 8ight Race roller and the kit?
ASIDE FROM ONE BEING BUILT

I just purchased the Race Roller because it was quite a bit cheaper than the kit. However, I would have prefered the kit...

Thanks,
-AL-

BTW, any issues w/ this buggy I should take care of or look into?

else from being built....the setup is different for the race roller compared to the stock setup for kit, mainly diff n shock oil. Race roller set up is more forgiving n better for rough tracks. Everything else, part wise , is the same.

Camber link positions, Heavier front sway bar, and rear hub position are also different on the Race Roller.

That is what I was wondering Thanks!

Don't really care what the set-up is because it is going to be changed to my driving style anyways (maybe not right away though)..

I've never run them myself but know some guys that do where I race.... They are very happy with them and tend to run up front all the time. I definately would not be afraid to run them at all.

I have one in my 8 and I am real happy with it, just wondering what other people think of them.

They are awesome engines! The Drake engines have great top end and pretty good bottom with either a JP1 or Trinity Drake 069 pipe. Not that great on fuel mileage though, usually looking around 6 to 7 1/2 minutes in that area depending on the track.

I have a JP-3 on my 'Drake', is does have awesome bottom and mid, not as much top as some of the hot mod rb's and nova's. It holds tune really well and I am still fine tuning it.

With my C6BB and 8mm stock venturi (I usually use a 7mm or 6.5mm) I got anywhere between 9min to 9min 30 seconds using the timer in my 3pks. The longer 9min 30sec was when I had to turn-marshal myself during practice. I love the clunk in the Losi tank!! Of course, run time varies very much so with throttle control, tune and track design and length. We have quite a few slower speed jumps with significant air time.

My old WS7II would get closer to 7 minutes. Im hoping the Ninja lives up to its hype on run time, but that will be awhile till I run it since I have a spare piston, sleeve and conrod for my C6BB. The Ninja will mainly be a backup when the C6BB is being maintained.

I will be using an 053 pipe with the Ninja, but the Nova pipes are not very durable. Has anyone tried the Dynamite, Ofna or Werks based 053's? Price is not a concern as I usually buy based on performance.
