Hi Guys

Just wondering if you guys would mind posting a couple of pictures of your fuel lines & how you have them placed.
I have found with my cars that if i go straight from tank to carby it runs very rich at full tank then goes lean at almost empty??
I have run a longer hose lately & mounted it higher than the tank using a loop around mixture screw & it seems to be more consistent.
I have also gone to a much longer exhaust hose as well.
This has been the same for both truggy & buggy so i was just chasing ideas if possible.
Any help would be appreciated.

the reason you are seeing that is because you are running too short of a pressure line, or your tanks has a leak. Always run 6-8 inches of pressure line.

Just curious;

Does anyone have any good body off shots of Drake or Truhes' 8ight? I've seen one of Drakes awhile ago, but have since lost it.

after having raced an rc8 all summer, I purchased a losi 8 and raced it the first time yesterday. First time on the track I ran 5 seconds faster than I ever did with the associated. Second time, I bettered that by 2 seconds. The third heat I got caught up in lap traffic, and I ended up number two qualifier. In the main, I ran second behind the number one qualifier for the first 6 minutes, like 10 feet behind him. This guy has been faster than me all year by a wide margin. I enentually finished second to him, but on the same lap. I am amazed at how easy this car is to drive. Great job Losi.

All I found was naked pics. Thanks for the trick! hehe.

Actually, I just did a Google Image search and found what I wanted. Not surprised to see that their buggies look just like mine. lol... oh well.

Just shows how good the 8ight is. Even the pro guys aren't running a huge pile of 'hop ups'. There's just no need for it.

What a fantastic car.

What tool do you need? I had the press in pin on the front CVD fall out within the first 30 minutes of track time on the car. The bone is in great shape, it would be awesome if I could just put a new pin in it.
