One more great race...the 8ight performed flawlessly, wish I could say the same for my starter box! Right before my 2nd qulifyer, a pinion on one of the drive motors came loose, and as I was putting it back on, one of the wires broke off So, right as I'm finishing the repairs, the horn sounds, race is over. Lucky for me, only the better result from the two count, and I won my first one.

I tried a set of M3 crime fighters for the first time(had been using M2s for a while), and WOW! I had saved them for the main, and glad I did. The car was on RAILS! I had a blast, there were some good battles, and I finished 3rd. I knew I couldn't win, there was a Pro that skipped qualifyers, and worked his way up from the D main. He was wheelin an 8ight as well. At the end of the night, it was a 15 year old kid that kicked all our butts with a Jammin, but the Losis put on a helluva show...can't wait till next time!

Oh yah, score one more raceday for my throttle servo setup!

For those of you with leaky shocks run one TKO o-ring. Problem solved, my shocks haven't leaked a drop in 7+ hours of track time. Never use shock oil as a lubricant for o-rings. Always use a good high quality grease....

Hi guys

Ronny from Neo-buggy's forum here. Happy new year!

I highly recommend TKO's products, not to mention service. Peter Martin is a very seriouse guy, and all the products I've tested from them have been Superb!

Thanks,

Ronny

Ok guys, In NO way is this a bash against TKO ..... I'm thinking there just may be some kind of mix up.
I bought a large quantity of those o-rings...... as soon as I saw them I thought they did not look right, (ON THE ONES I RECEIVED!!) The ID was way to big and the OD was way to small, I just chalked it up as a loss but after seeing that they are working for others, I'm not sure what happened with my order ???

Default Need LOSA5434

I need a spring perch and a shock end. I checked the usual suspects and they are all out of stock - Stormer, A/Bmainhobbies, Horizon, and of course local.

Any other places to check?

Welp went to my 2nd race day w/ the 8 yesterday, my first race day I got 5th in the E-Main. Well this time during qualifing, I got 12 laps, when last time I was only able to pull 10 laps in 2 quals, and 11 in one other qual. I got 12 for all 3 quals, each time doing it about 5-10 seconds faster. Not bad, I qual'd in the C-Main, I know there was an F main, mabye even a G, don't remember. So I started my main, got rear ended, and fell to dead last. Almost got lapped by the leader in the first lap. I pulled off because I was so pi$$ed at myself and also because it was lean bogging on the low end like hell. Well turns out my pipe got shoved toward the center of the chassis and now was pinching the fuel line, so I pulled the fuel line out from under it and went back out to run. I ended up with 17 laps, with 2 people below me. Cool. I'm happy with this car, it's so fast.

I did notice today as I do my -after race day- tear down, the rear shock boots are ripped and I bet the fronts are too. So I'm going to Wal mart pretty soon to get some balloons.

I would also like to say that in the past weekend we had our 2nd Israeli race and I managed to win the B-main and get in to the A-main.
This buggy (like every other Losi product) is great!!!!!!!
