Default starter box

I have the OFNA truggy starter box (blue w/2 750 motors), but having a heck of time aligning the Losi 8T on it. Do you pictures that you can post? THanks much, Jason

Thanks Tex and Lars for the info on the pipe. I was going to use it on my Go 5 port, but the go has lots of bottom already. Thanks again.

Why would you want CVD upgrades? The stock shafts work great. The cross pins seem to be the only part that wears out. But the cross pins can be replaced (with a little elbow grease) or the shafts can be replaced for a little coin.

No I don't know of any upgraded CVD shafts.

well a few guys by me bent them maybe it was from chassis flex but anyway I have my whole truggy built tough with all king headz stuff and I'm just trying to make it stonger,I guess it's no big deal if they bend I'll just buy new ones they are thin compared to the hyper st truggy I was hoping to get something of that order.

thanks, dan

they don't bend by themselves.... only when you run into things.

They are thin because that means less rotating mess, which equals better acceleration and a faster car...

I agree.. I hope they hold up good though. I also have the cvd condoms so that will help with the pins

Yeah, they should hold up just fine. I haven't seen a problem with them from a local point of view. That's what I should have said.

I have placed the CVD covers on both my buggy and truggy and they seem to work fine on keeping them clean and in great working order. I think that if you were to do anything with them I would start with these. You can find them on amain.

Part numbers for the new Losi 1/8 buggy Eclipse tire with the new Losi molded foam:

LOSA7769R - Red
LOSA7769S - Silver

ETA of Mid-April. If your track uses Bowties or Crime Fighters, give these a shot. Way better IMO...

I wondered why there was none when I went to get them

You have any good tracks in Colorado that are open? I'll be going up there next week
