yea i'd like to replace all the dogbones but i dont have the $100 to do that so this is the next best thing considering just the pin is worn away. I've actually had great luck after one of my pins came out before i squirted some superglue in the hole,put the pin back in and it's still in thier

when replacing the pins you really should use Loktite 638 (metal retaining compound) or something similar. Never had any problems when i've used this although you will need a blowtorch/heat gun to get the pin back out once set.

as for red Loktite it depends which one it is if its a screw/ hydraulic sealant it isn't designed for that application

222 pink/red screwlok, ok for electric buggies if screws keep coming loose not really strong enough for rallyX
242/243 blue (liquid/stick)nutlok, perfect for most situations on most model cars
270 green studlock only use if you never want to remove the screw again as the dremmel will be coming out

Oh yea, use a film of grease coating the paper gasket to help seal.

As far as I know it is if you go by the addendum they out up on the Losi site. Follow it 100% and you should be in there. You also need to use the stock rubber gromets for the servo as it helps with the viberations and raises the servo up a little bit more. I have a good season on mine and have the same throttle servo in there from when I built the buggy. I run the stock radio tray with no extra bracing on the tray. I did add the rubber o-ring under the rec. batt. box about half way through the season. I set up the throttle throw at 60% gas and 45% brake on the EPA. That was the most I throw I could get without the servo trying to move the radio tray. Hope that helps.

Well I recieved my 8ight Saturday and was very happy. I had been running my LST2 so I cleaned it up did some maintenence "tightening screws ect". Then later that night I opened the box and saw a huge wet spot on the box. I knew what happend before I found the bag. It's killing me not being able to build my car this weekend, but I have to wait to see what Horizon is going to do about this. I'm not just going to clean it up and call it good everything in the bag has been soaking in oil for no telling how long. I know it won't hurt it, but I shouldn't have to have any doubts in my mind with a brand new kit.

It's just the shock oil in the one bag right? get over it and build the rest of the kit, the shocks don't go on till almost the end of the build if you follow the manual. Horizon wil probably just replace the bag if not juat the oils.

Check and see if thats the oil you're planning on running. The Losi shock oil is cheap, so you can just get more from the LHS. Contact Horizon, as they may send you new oil, but its just shock oil.
