Thumbs up Hey Adam

I run a tuned grp .21 on a oval that has a 250 driveline and no shortage of traction.Can you suggest a gear change , I currently run the 14/48 that comes with the l8ight.It is not enough top end and I am spared for cash and can't afford more than 1 gear right now.Thanks for any suggestions.

the 14/48 is a nice gearing, but if its still not enough go with 48/15. a 48/16 will work to but that will take a lot of the low end


this is how you do gearing

spur- higher number of teeth- faster accel/ lower number-faster top end

clutch bell- higher number- faster top end/ lower- faster accel

I currently have the losi 1.0 buggy and have been thinking of upgrading to the 2.0. I'm a decent sportsman class driver still learning. My question is will the 2.0 help me much or should I continue to learn with the 1.0?

both are the 23 tooth. the 25 is the wrong one. ALL jr is 23. and no you gotta buy the inserts as a set, its only 3.39.. i would just buy the alum servo horn for steering tho

i had the same worry as you. but as long as you have the servo saver set right you shouldnt have a problem. ive been running an alum horn since i got my truggy and i havent blown my steering servo.just make sure that servo saver spring isnt set to tight

Integra- The measurement should have always been 23.4, but it's not much of a difference. 23.3 or 23.4 and it's time to replace the clutch shoes.

David Wall- I ran my standard set-up from the Losi site. The changes I made: Center Smartdiff, with two .15 springs, M3 Holeshots with Losi molded inserts, and I ran a little more toe-out in the front.

party_wagon- I don't think the design of the 8ight driveshafts will have more wear then a CVD, but the reason for the design is because we wanted the longest possible bone and we wanted to capture the pins with the bearing.

ovalosi- I've only raced the L8ight once and I ran 15/48. What carb insert are you running? If you need more top-end I would go to a 8mm.

clebo3- The 8ight 2.0 is easier to drive and allows you to push the buggy more then the 8ight.

jeremy reed- Both should use a 23 horn.

bcquick- 7,000 in the front diff, 3,000 in the rear diff and I would go to silver rear springs, outside hole on the rear arm and run a 56 piston with three holes drilled out with a #55 drill bit and 25wt oil. Let me know how it works.
