Good call on starting a new 8ight thread. LHS owner said that mine should be here tomorrow.........I feel like a 5 year old kid at Christmas, I've never been so giddy before about an RC Car, haha.

Its pretty safe to say the Dirt setup will be about the best setup for most 1/8 tracks.

If I had to venture a guess, I'd say they use Losi shock oil.
