Default Losi 8ight 2.0 parts on 8ight-T

Has anyone tried the 8 2.0 parts on the 8T yet
I know that they have a new truggy coming out soon but i'd like to know if anyone has tried these parts yet.

I have bought the servo tray, bellcranks, servo saver and rear gearbox but i have encounted a few problems.

I run the 8T tuned flex chassis and the new throttle servo position hits the chassis where mud gard attaches.
I have no problem milling this spot down. But will it effect the flex of the chassis to much?
Also the milled out section of the chassis below the old servo position, should that extended too?

I want to run the new bellcranks and servo saver but will the new servo saver be strong enough for the buggy?
Should i just use the old 8T servo saver spring?

the gearbox is a no brainer and i think that the other problems are easily solved but i just want to know if others have tried and what there opinions are

shave the dirt guard to fit the servo...try either of the servo saver springs...im pretty sure they are both the same now as far as tension...play with it in your hands make it work and judge for yourself how tight it should be.

I know one of your problems now


the radio tray has the throtle servo raised higher than the old one so it might put to much tention onto the srvo, so I's wait for the new truggy other than trying to break something

and I highly doubt you could use the tank(different CC's?) and towers

Yah i was thinking the same thing??? the raised servo position is bassically just the spacer provded with the old kits made into the plastic. Plus once you run a stiffener your running the same hight so i dunno what your trying to say here...

You want me to put it in simple terms?

Fuel tanks isn't the right size, towers may be different, and the radio tray is raised.

No i was wondering on your reasoning on why the servo would be stressed as the servo positioning as to hight is the exact same on the new tray...

Use the 2.0 spring its much stronger than the old spring, let me know how the 2.0 bell cranks work out im curious about that for my truggy, let me know if it improves the steering

the servo tray is raised because the milled section that used to be under the servo isnt anymore.
my problem was that on the non tuned flex chassis you cant tighten the new tray down because it sits above the curved up section of the chassis.
so it just meant that you have to use the tuned flex chassis

thanks for the advise on the servo saver. That was what i thought, i just wanted to here it from someone else

Does anybody know the difference between the 8ight-t and the 8-t 2.0 ? IS there a chance that the old -T can be converted to 2.0 similarity. Or should we ditch the 8-T and go get the 2.0T ? By the way, whats the difference on the radio tray?

The 8t 2.0 is supposed to be 14mm longer, have a different body, new towers, longer rear shocks, have all the 8B 2.0 upgrades and by the looks of it the new one will be running standard offsets and longer arms

i think it will alot to upgrade and more worthwhile just buying the new one

i am upgrading my 8T to all the 8B 2.0 parts that fit only because i am very happy with the current car.
if the new on comes out before my state titles in feb and i can get one to Australia in time i might get the new one.
but i dont think it will be so much better that i can't do without

I have installed the 2.0 radio tray in my 8T; with a little milling under the throttle servo, it works perfectly - no binding on the servo horns.

there is no difference in the chassy milling from what i can tell....therefor You DO NOT need the Tuned flex chassy to make the radio tray work.
