Sorry Integra,
you hadn't posted what servos your using so it was the only thing I thought maybe causing the problem.

Hope you get it sorted

Fluke- No plans for a conversion kit. email me your address adrake@horizonhobby.com

bustedpiecerc- It sounds like the low seed needle is too lean or your clutch springs are too light.

aburton- See you soon!

chill will- Yes, but you also need to change the side gaurds and linkage.

brian kadow- ?

briguy- Radio tray, and linkage.

TIX- Yes, but you will need to drill the outer rear hinge pin hole on the arm to 3.5mm.

Nope just running the regular old 8t. I'm not sure much from the buggy would work. Your still running the Losi?

They want you to buy a new kit even if you just bought the 8ight. I know it's not Drakes fault, but I thought I would just put in my 2 cents.

try turning the HSN a little more. Maybe around 1/2 turn and see how it goes. You can always lean it slowly if its too fat.

hey adam i have a quick question and a problem.

how often are u at the nitro pit in az??? i just started racing not long ago and would like 2 see u and mike race, im going 2 tucson this weekend for "The Az Champ series"

and here is my problem. i have the original losi 8ight, i do plan to get the 2.0 but im tight on money because of this problem. i have gone thru 4-5 clutches in the past month, month in a half.My clutch bearings are lasting a night of racing and thats it. i have finally started changing the bearings after a night of racin but i dont feel this should be doing this. ive had 2 different hobby shops take a look but they dont know why. i was runnin the pro kits clutch set up but now i changed to all alum. pads and silver springs hoping this will help
