no additional holes are needed, the engine sticks out of the body enough it will have alot of air flowing over and cooling it

Default 8T 2.0 Smart Diffs

Adam, I'm looking in to the center smart diff on my 8T 2.0. I would like to run fluid and not the grease. What are the pros and cons of during this, would I be better off with the grease. If diff fluid is fine do i run the standard 10k?

Thanks

Recently two upgrades came out for the 8B and 8T (2.0), these are the truggy gearing for the buggy and the smart diffs. Lots have been said about different factory drivers using them.

Does anyone have developed a guide for using them under different conditions? (i.e. low or high traction, technical vs open track, etc.)

I would appreciate this info.

Default Losi arm guards

Hi Adam,

Will losi be bringing some sort new arm guards out for the 8B/8T 2.0 or even Looking at designing some new ones in the near future.
Something similar to the arm guards on the MBX6.
Something that's a bit more heavy duty & that curve up over the cvd for some aero dynamics.

Anyone knows the total weight off the buggy 2.0, complete with stock wheels? And the weight of the 1st version? Too much difference?
Thanks
