Default 8ight 1.0 with new 2.0 radio tray - servo/ linkage rubbing

I have an 8ight 1.0 and added the new 2.0 servo tray. I put on a current 8ight 1.0 body and the top of the servo and linkages rubbed. Does the 8ight 2.0 body fit on the 8ight 1.0 with the new 2.0 servo tray? and will it eliminate this rubbing?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

ADE

the 2.0 body will fit, it wont rub any more than a 2.0 would. there are some detailed instructions in the 2.0 thread on how to adjust it.

Sorry - I'm a little confused. My 1.0 has the 2.0 tray. The 1.0 body doesnt seem to fit over the servo and linkages. trying to confirm if the 2.0 body will fit on my 1.0 with the new tray and not rub.

You mention 2.0 will fit, it wont rub any more than a 2.0 would. Did you mean the 1.0 will fit and rub no more than the 2.0?

I'm using JR 9100t servos and I did include the rubber grommets and the spacers to lift the servos. I also shaved down the chassis guard under the servo.

I really appreciate all of your help!

Thanks again.

the 2.0 body will fit and it will rub less. I read the 1.0 body has to be cut to allow the linkage to move without rubbibg quite a bit, like some of the older buggies used to be.

I have a 2.0 roller and it rubs a little, in the 2.0 thread there is a post on about page 23-25 that tells you how to set up your linkages perfectly and stop the rubbing.

I mean the 2.0 body wont rub any more on a 1.0 chassis(with updated radio tray) than it would on a 2.0 chassis.......

Steering ball links will pop on a hard impact, there is a mod, or you could probably buy the 2.0 no pop balls.

Thanks for the clarification. I found that post on the setup. I noticed there was quite a bit of servo hum when setting it up. I also pulled the 2.0 manual and see the rubber grommets are not used. The throttle servo area has a built in standoff that is not on the original. I think I originally used the rubber grommets on my 8T when there was a lot of problems with the original radio tray. I think removing these should drop the servo some.

Thanks again for all of your help.

IMO you should Always use the rubber grommets....vibrations are a servo's 2nd worst enemy.
