I just bought 2 losi 8ights.
Any suggestions for torque on the servos?

It will wear in. Check it after you run several tanks through it. Let er rip and have some fun.

Thanks for the info guys. it's making it less diffcult to decide between the losi and the xray. just wish the losi had more meat on the front and rear pinion shafts like the mugen does. guess I just wont land on the gas. Also what's a good engine for this car. I had a P5 in my mbx-5 and it screamed. I want something with a little more top end but with the same bottem end and no turbo plugs. I hate them things for off road.

Loosen the front cvd set screw and "from the inside of the gear box" Push the pinion back as far as it will go then re tighten the cvd set screw. If its allowed to move back and fourth it will feel notchy.

Yer, have to agree. The 5955TG is the best servo there is 4 torque.

I dont think I will ever buy a Hitec servo again. Futaba, Airtronics or KO Propo most likely. I wasnt looking for specific servo #'s just min torque ratings. So you think 200 oz is enough? Both servos 200oz or just the steering? I have never run 1/8th before so this is new to me.

I love the JR 9000T/S combo in my 8T so I'm probably going to run the 9100T/S on my buggy. They have good specs and a 3 year warranty.

once i put the steering tie rods on, the steering movement is a bit snug, not free feeiling like it was before isatalling the tie rods, it feels like the balls are snug in the plastic, Im sure this is normal, anyone know how long it takes it all to break in???

dont forget to factor in fuel cost and glow plugs..that can make a huge difference depending on how much you run, not to mention a starter box..
