Hobby shop or use this conversion to get something close:

http://bobmay.astronomy.net/misc/drillchart.htm

I believe this conversion chart also tells you the size of Losi piston holes, if you ever care to know....

Its a .052" bit

It's a little larger then 3/64ths (.052" X 64 = 3.328 64ths)

a #56 hole is just under 3/64ths (.0465" X 64 = 2.976 64ths)

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.
Adam in reference to David walls Psycho Nitro question, your answer a little more toe outwards is that 1 deg or 1/2 deg? Is that a good rule to use if a buggy has push and track might be a little loose?

Hello everybody.!

My name is Jose, Im from Ibiza, in Spain.

I have just buy a second hand losi eight 1.0 to start with this car.

My idea is to start with 1.0 try it for few racers and look how it works, and late buy the new 2.0.

I just wonder if is many differents in drive the 1.0 to the 2.0.

Thanks very much.

the 2.0's are alot different from the 1.0's.....My suggestion would be to start reading the 2.0 thread's....start with this one.

Dynamite 086. Nova 9886. Thunder tiger 086. All will give execellent top end. Also the trinity bad boy pipe is a best all around. I am pleased with it so far on a grp tuned .21. Also try a dynamite 053 it's much more free than the grp pipe.

the dynamite 086 will give you more top end, i ran it offroad and liked it but it seemed a little soft on the bottom. i do like the losi re10 or the dyn 053 better for offroad but i think the 086 would be great on an oval. the losi re11 might be a good choice also but i have not tried it.

i found the 9853/053 to be the best pipe on the engine, the 2053 was restrictive for me as well, also the ae/ttr 2035 was a really good choice for the engine

losi_racer- I use the bits from Racer's Edge.

Tim Dougherty- I don't have a gauge for the front toe, but I went to about 1 more degree of toe-out per side.

ovalosi- Losi RE10.
