My home track was indoor. With that car I liked the diffs at 5000,5000,2000 front to back in Mugen oil. I had just rebuilt the shocks, 35, 30 associated oil.

Seems to be a weak point on the car. Many people I know have stripped it. In fact, if I remember correctly, in one of the very first '8ight' reviews in the RC literature (Radio Control Car Action, I think), this was the only part they broke.

Replace the servo horn with a one-piece unit and don't worry about it any more. There are many choices. I used one I had laying around from my Serpent 950... just the right size.

Thank you all for your input, now my only problem is finding those elusive backup parts. My camber links are starting to get a bit sloppy and I just feel better knowing if something were to break at an away race, that I'd have a fix. Anyone know where to get a flywheel for the eight, breaking in the TL B7 made mine quite gnarly from all the pry past the pinch with a flat head that I had to do.

Next time try the hair dryer trick, you won't have to chew up your flywheel.

I'm currently running the King Headz shoes. But I'm running two 7075 and two 6061 shoes. I'm using the the softest springs that come with the kit. It engages pretty early, but I'm running a 21 BF 3-port, so it makes the power delivery very smooth.

That was using a hair dryer getting it up to about 175 before even trying to start it and still extreme pinch, and yes the glow plug was cracked loose as well.

Wow, that's pretty tight! We've had really good luck with that trick.

JBRacing, i've been using 2 gold and 2 green with the king headz 7075 shoes, seems to work really well. Other people on other forums are also using that same combo with good results.
