Losi 8t 2.0, if it had a reliable rear ring & pinion then mission accomplished. Wouldn't trade for anything else just the way it is though.

I've already been shimming mine with a 10mm shim after it gets some play. My 8t seems to be exceptionally hard on rear gears. Pinion gets small in diameter pretty quick. Tried different lubes, using mobil 1 synthetic grease at this time.

I think that the XT808 is next but 8-T 2.0, MBX6T, D8T, and others are close behind.

It may not be in a dictionary but it works for me. Probably should have two M's though.
