Thanks for the info Integra...

Liked the look of the short lid over the hump... Also, the Losi Lipo is a bit more $$ than some of the lesser know Lipo rx packs out there. Figured it was specifically designed for the 8ight battery box and was trying to justify spending the extra money on it...

Red face Watch out.........

You might want to put some lexan on the bottom of that battery. I have seen several guys lose their LiPos by the screw area wearing the foam in the bottom of those boxes. The Lexan will allow the foam to work but won't let the screw area damage the bottom of the battery.
Hope this helps.

Default Rear Diff?

Is there a way to adjust the rear diff gear mesh? I just receied my new 8ight Race Roller and the mesh between the ring/pinion is horrible!

I took it apart once already to see if there were a shim I could remove. There were none that I could see, nor any way to losen the gear mesh...

Is this normal? The front and center diffs feel fine. The rear seems to be out of round because it seems fine half way around. The other half feels like its full for sand...

Any sugestions?
