Alan, you think I'm going to drive 2 hours just to come look at your buggy? Noooooooo my brother, I will have to drive it too.

BriGuy - I had everything set up correct except I discovered I forgot to put the O-rings back on. I was leading the main and I over shot the downside of a jump and landed on the flat and it killed the servo. This was in a 8ight T.

Yes, correct. Maybe not exactly 3 months but pushing close now. I did say "about" 3 months.

At any rate, the car has been top notch and still going good! We had to run through some serious mud/rain added with a lot of running over the week with no issues. The new body looks very good as well!

Jonathan Bell- No, but we both ran them at the JBRL rd.#7

Integra- Thanks, around this time next year.

Bigedmond- Thanks!

air8- Thanks. 

looneytune- The 8ight and 8ight 2.0 use the same engine mounts. I haven’t used the King Headz engine mount, but by making the chassis stiffer, the buggy won’t be as good on rough tracks.

b-man777- The GRP engine are great. Nothing to be scared about. No plans for a .12 at this time.

Cornerspeed- Thanks Don.

Jamminnay- Thank you.

CarCrazy- 

ABURTON- LOL! It will be a great time.

LOSI MAD- Not sure on the final release date, but should be around Jan.

Tin- The carb settings can be a lot different depending on the restrictor, fuel, glow plug, ect… If the engine is blowing a lot of smoke you should be ok, but try temping the engine with an Exergen gun to make sure.

Smoothone- The new diff cases that come stock in the 2.0 are completely different than the old stock ones. They have been completely redesigned and last way longer.

Furadi- The DX3R and the M11 are both high-end radios. For most “vet” racers, it comes down to what they are comfortable with.

Bigsquidracer- Glad to hear you are happy with the buggy.

Chill_Will- Yes. The radio tray has been redesigned.

Greenracing-= Yes, the 8ight 2.0 will work on the old starter box.

Drake is the man!!! I never seen in all my years in this hobby someone going on the forum and answering every question and emails. I've sent a few emails to him always answers them quickly and with great advise. Thats why I like Losi and continue to buy their products. Best customer service and products.

Adam,
Thanks for taking the time to help us all out. It looks like a guy could convert the original 8ight to a 2.0. Does Losi have plans to sell a conversion kit?
Thanks and Congrats on the engagement!

ok so i'm in the process of breaking in my .21 grp tuned engine.

i have let 5 tanks idle with the tire foam around the head with temps approximately 160-180 and 4 tanks in the street with the top end very rich
running the same temps 160-180.

my question is: when is the right time to start "tuning" it for power..taking it to the track and actually driving/racing it?

what are some good "do" or "not do" tips once i start driving it at the track? what kinda temps should i be looking for as the motor continues to break in?

Nice, whats your needle setting. My engine runs around 235. I checked my Odonnell temp gauge with my raytek at work and its only degree off. I think you can start tunning it for power but just remember to keep the top end rich.
