I saw The Drake running theme even at the NEO08 and there was no grass around.
I have the lexan ones from losi its a perfect fit and they work gread.
At 5usd who gives a f*** they work awsome.
specialy on a grass track like we have a lot here in europe.
Do not expect theme to stay nice and clean. They realy get some beating but they are expendible when whorn out.
The rear diffcups stay a lot cleaner. Also the drive train in the rear bennefits of these parts.
Way less debury in the driveshafts.

P.S. The guards for the 8T need some cutting but stil a great fit.

Take a Dremel with a small grinding stone and carefully chamfer the hole in the shock tower that the standoff goes threw. The hole is very sharp there.

Don't just rely on the lock nut, you must use some locktite on the threads and crank the nuts down fairly tight. The nuts will come loose without the locktite.

On the rear arm protectors, run them everywhere. What I have found is that I gain some extra down force in the rear with them and lap times are a little quicker with them on vs. off. So far not many issues with them other than having to trim up the buggy body for them to clear properly.

On the front shock standoffs, using a Dremel helped and I switched to some alum. lock nuts. I haven't had one come loose yet (that I know of, but it could have happened), or had to put locktite on them, but I doubt it would hurt to try that.

Does anybody know if the Kyosho differentials fit the 8ight?? Or if the TCD gears will fit into a 8ight diff?

Looks great. Mine are at my firestation waiting for me to come back to work. Are you replacing all three in your buggy/truggy?
