Would you like to help me out at revelation raceway somehow? or at JBRL round 8?
Are you thinking it a little fat because it is bogging as you apply throttle??


BTW, a racer here had his GRP .21 temp at 403. We immediately richened the top 1 full turn, and then shut it down. Put the piston at bdc, then set the car near a fan to cool it off slowly. This weekend, the same motor ran great, and still had pinch. Either way, he just ordered new bearings.

+1

Even if there is an 8ight T in the works I`m sure every driver and Losi/Horizon employee can`t say anything about it until Losi has released the info .

If anyone can post me the bare weight on the 8ight 2.0 plz(no motor/pipe , servo's, electrics, wheels or shell that'd also be very interesting. basicly new without wheels or shell on).

Thanks for your reply Dietz

Rod
There is a 1.8oz. difference. That's, no motor,pipe,radio tray,wing,body and wheels. roller to roller

Yes I know it has been asked but im very anxious to see what the new truck is going to look like so i figured it wouldnt hurt to ask if there was some sort of time table. sorry I offended you by asking a simple question.

Again , nobody is allowed to say there is a new 8-T coming until it has been released to the public , just like when they said there wasn`t going to be a newer 8ight until Losi revealed it . This has been asked several times and been given the same response . Unless you are a Losi driver or employee you will have to wait just like the rest of us .

Bigedmond- Itís possible if sales take off. I would rather run truggy personally.

Intergra- Haha..

TIX- The material, mold configuration, design and molding process.

R1harper- Thanks!

Mr. losi- 2-a front and 2-b rear.

Merciless- My buggy was a little over 2 oz. lighter.

Dirtydezpirate- Iíll be at Revelation tonight and Thursday if you need help. What was the engine running at before you switched fuel?

Blower Uper A I havenít used a nosram or hpi engine.

Donut92673- No problem. Let me know how it runs this weekend.

Jamminfrazy- Iím sure we will release a new turggy at some point, but I donít know when that will be.

Bigedmond- WOW, 403!

Intergra- If sales take off on the SC8, Losi may look into doing something similar, but I don't think that's going to happen. Racing truggies is a lot more fun them running a CORR type truck in my eyes. The 8ight 2.0 bones are a lot harder and last more then twice as long.

b-man777- Yes, I know of Matrix. There chassis looks really nice. Not sure about the wear vs. a stock chassis.

i could answer this for ya.....i personally dont own one...i do run his anchorman's.....but also know CF characteristics and know all about Robert's chassy.....he uses skids on the rear so wear is practically nothing....and he uses replacable droop screw tabs so when they wear you can replace them...which i have yett to see another MFG do.....and the CF he uses is Top Notch.....not the regular old SSG composite you see on most pro level kits....ive been waiting for the truggy chassy personally as i like truggy better also.


PS Adam u missed the updated bone question.
