Default RC8 - AE BIG BORES OR OFNA BIG BORES

I'm building my new RC8 and wanted to know if anyone had run the new AE big bores and how they worked as to the ofna big bores...

Hey, just thought i would let you know i brought HN big bores for my mugen 2 weeks ago, the AE ones look identical to the HN ones, BUT AE big bores have 4mm shafts HN big bores have 3.5mm shafts. If i was buying again i would get the AE ones no questions asked.

I got the Ofna SBB on my RC8 and love them. But the AE big bores look nice too. Not sure about difference in shaft size, but if the AE has a thicker shaft size, I would suggest to got with those. If the shaft size is the same, either brand will work. The Ofna SBB do require the Ofna stand-offs.

Broke two shafts on jammin big bores. Never broke any of my mugens read to use the mugen shafts with them. Drill 1.4 mm to 1.5-1.6 if you get the big four shock set comes with two sets of dampeners extra bushings o rings. Got buy it now ebay 80.00 skip the lightest springs IMHO I might try the lightest truggy or what ever is over silver for our outside track.
