Hi all
I have the 8ight RTR buggy mostly converted over to the competition buggy except for the chassis.
I'm currently running the Truhe setup and I have an issue.
On big jumps the rear of my buggy wants to unload off the jump and flip forward like I was doing a forward somersault.
I can't find a setting that has helped solve this. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd try a bit heavier shock oil in the rear first, or at the very least a smaller piston. One change then test. If you're running 25wt (Losi) I'd try 30wt or 32.5wt and see if that helps. I'm sure more will have other ideas for ya. Still though, I'd try one change, then test.

Make sure you do not too much rear droop.

Anyone know where to get the fuel line for the 8ight? I need to replace the fuel line, due to leakage, and the one used for tank, is a bit thicker than normal.

I usually shop at Carolinas or a-main.


And, how much heavier it the alu spindel/holder combo, compared to stock plastic?

Is this a must have option? less slop?

I always used whatever fuel line I had or my LHS has and worked great .

For servos, I've had really good luck so far with the Ace DS1313 servos. They are quick and strong enough for both duties on buggy.

If you want to stick with Futaba, I'd go with the BLS351 and BLS451. I plan on upgrading to the Futaba setup, just to have all Futaba gear.

Ace would run you about $150 for the pair whereas the Futabas will be about twice that.

Again welcome. If you have more questions, there are several here that will be happy to help ya get going. My only other words of advice would be "Always buy new." ... but that's just me.
do you know if the associated xp ds1313 servo is the same as the ace ds1313 it looks like all the specs are the same????

Integra--so you're liking the M2C setup? From what I've seen there is a bit more adjustment than what Losi has available. So where have you settled at as a starting setup?

5 Feet

2 Feet

The aluminum spindles and hubs will give you more steering over the plastic.

Exactly the same - except for price. You'll save about $20 on the pair if you go with the Ace... usually.

depends on the motor and track really....but for a Honkin modded .28 Reg hards on .9's have been pretty sweet....my .21 set-up varies.

How much difference between the F/R CV driveshafts (LOSA3521) and the Center Front CV driveshaft (LOSA3526)??? I replaced the cross pins in all the worn out CV shafts today, and I have 5 that are same length. So I'm thinking I screwed up many months ago and put one of the 3521 wheel CV's in place of the center CV shaft.
