This setup will be my new starting setup for anywhere I go, I thought it made the car very easy to drive on a high bite track

I believe its 2mm longer then the stock...it moves the weight further back on the rear of the car...Makes the car more stable..

A picture won't do you any good. Like David said, it's 2mm longer and hard to tell a difference by looking at a pic.

Is there anything special anyone doing to their throttle servo to make it last or should I just stay away from JR servos.

Went to Cape Fear Raceway near Raleigh NC Saturday. Qualified 5th in the A-Main but unfortunetly the Rain ended the fun before our Main got started. I'm really liking the SX8. I'm starting to get used to the small differences in its driving style vice the Mugen MBX6R I was running.

The only thing I can't find a fix for is the fact that if I land nose down even in the smallest amount off of a medium size or bigger jump, it will dig the nose every time. Has anyone found a cure for this or is it just that critical to land flat or slightly tail first?

Thanks,
Jamie

Do you have the 08 or 09 buggy?

I run 45 wt Losi oil front with full droop
35 wt Losi oil rear

I have never had the problem of the car nose diving off jumps. The only 2 things I could think of would be to thin of shock oil or not enough droop.

Hope this helps

Default nose diving

white offroad-- I have never had this problem before so check:

front droop, I do not run full droop and still have no problems, if you are running alot of droop then loosen the screws out for more ground clearance.
I do run OFNA blue front springs, TQ now has these same springs also. They are a little stiffer so this would help you, and finally be sure you are not running too light of shock fluid. I normally run LOSI weight between 32.5-42.5depending on the track.

Hope this helps, if after these changes it still is happening let us know and we will try something else.

J Blaze - I never had that happen. 50wt might be too thick it you have big jumps. I have ran 45wt in the front with no problems.
