yes i forgot to mention that the motor comes out every time i use it, its usually the first thing to come off, its always good to check that ur spur gear is meshing perfectly with ur clutch bell b4 u run the car, i have rushed it a few times and had to buy a new spur gear inside 20mins of using it, okay it was a plastic one, but it would have lasted if i had of checked over it, maintain ur r/c, take it apart when you can and if you have to, draw pictures so u know where what goes, i have drawn a pic of my reciever so i know which one is the throttle and which is the steering, i have done this because i once plugged my battery in a servo channel and fried both servo's a costly mistake,

My RC8 -


Take it apart after every meeting. Clean all the driveshafts, shocks, diffs, plastics, clutch.....everything!! Makes the car look cleaner and makes me feel happier knowing that i have a car in top shape ready for racing

even the condition of your guys cars is perfect. my car is dirty as hell, but that doesnt stop me from bringing it inside and setting it where ever I want

Mine has scratches everywhere, the top of the engine is very scratched from rolling over, rims are scratched and dirty, gas tank is ridiculously dirty as is ym back left shock/tire from the exhaust.

If I took the engine, gas tank, and radio box out, could i just spray if off with a hose/pressure washer?

I wouldnt know where/how/what kind of grease to use though.

As far as cleaning goes, soak the car with simple green first for 5 minutes or so. Then spray it off with a hose. I use the sprayer in my kitchen sink. Then spray a coat of wd40 on the car so the screws dont rust. You can blow the car off when you get done with air if you have a compressor.

Looks good Donnie, now drive your happy a$$ out here and race with us.

Pete, both of those are mine. I really can't decide between the two which I like better. They both have their ups and downs. A buddy of mine has the same setup on an AE and Losi and we have talked about trading out so we have two of the same cars but neither can decide which one we like better. LOL.

Chirivita, the Kysoho shocks are different lengths than the Losi ones.
