Default 8ight 2.0 Fuel Tank.

What is the dif between the new 'sure close' fuel tank and the old one? Are there parts (cap, spring, etc) that can retrofit an 'old' tank? I have an 8ight-T and would like to retrofit the tank if it'd be an improvement, and is possible.

Adam, yeah the engine did pretty great.. It was just break in process. My name is Jaime DelTiempo by the way, Im sure you have seen me at JBRL with that little black n white dog. haha, and I run with matrix concepts inc carbon fiber kits.. and I wonder if it is possible to replace the older race roller with the new 2.0 parts such as rear gearbox, spindel carrier, hub carrier in rear, fuel tank (is it really any difference from the old fuel tanks?) I noticed the shock towers chamber holes are different.

So how much longer is the new 2.0 than the first verison?

See ya at Revelation this weekend for JBRL round 7.

Hello Adam,

what is the difference between the old 8ight flywheel and the new 8 2.0 flywheel?

Also what has changed with the driveshafts. is it just a length adjustment or have they changed the material to a harder / lighter spring steel like the hudy stuff. If it is just a length change what are the new lengths as i currently run the 808 driveshafts on my F/R driveshafts to save driveline weight and i would like to continue doing so on the new 8 2.0 if the weight of the new ones are the same.

Thanks
Tix

Antone-- I run full rebound in my shocks.

Ruggydriver- The two orange heads are Tuned engines and the silver head is a non-tuned version. Yes, it would be like comparing a v spec to a speed.

Bigedmond- LOL!

Ruggydriver- The reason for the std. plug on the non tuned version is because std. plugs are cheaper and easier to find.

jabroni racing- Before you put the bladder / cap on the shock you need to push the shaft in 4-6 mm.

Brian Miskolczi- GRP produced the Falcon and Ninja, but I’m sure they have change some since the release of the new line.

dethklok151- The 8ight 2.0 is much easier to drive, better on rough tracks and lighter.

SteveJa- If the electric 1/8th racing takes off like I think it will, we will look into that.

gameholic2- The smart diff will not be included in the 8ight 2.0. The diff will work similar to the fioroni or BBF, but is completely different in design and more user friendly with making adjustments.

Eccentric- You can use the new lid on an old tank, but the top of the tank has been changed to support the stiffer spring.

Bigsquidracer- http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/8IGHTTDrakeStd08.pdf http://www.losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/D...Neobuggy08.pdf

Jamminnay- Thanks, I had an awesome time at the Horizon Shootout.

DirtyDezPirate- Yes you can upgrade the old 8ight with the 8ight 2.0 parts. 2mm longer. I always run the GRP #5 and Mike runs the GRP #4.

TIX- The flywheel is the same. The material of the drive shafts is what changed. They are much harder.

Hey Adam, would it be possible to use the standard head button on the GRP Tuned version? Can I use RB plugs as well instead of the GRP plugs? What affect would this bring? Thanks a bunch!
