Default hi

hi im running the rc8t and have run it when you do the droop the way i do it is lift the car up of the ground about 1 cm and drop it on the bench then get the ruler and put it behind the arm and pull the car up till it hits the chassis and count it from when you drop it on the bench and when you lift it up i would do 2-3 mm and that is a good amount and you ride height do 50mm at rear and 55mm at front rear kamber -3 rear and -2 at front and see how that goes and if you having any more questions about the rc8t just ask

ok guys thanks ill start there, as for the rest of the settings, this is my first truggy (stepped up from mt) i figured id run it stock until i get more experiece driving it i just couldnt find any stock set up in the book for droop. thanks for the recommendations on the gear, here is what i have so far
-2 hitec 7955tg servos (overkill but got a great deal and have gl with them)
-orion lipo rx and reg
-3pks with spektrum with lipo
-jconcepts lpr rulux 0 offset and m2 crimefighters (to start with)

i really want the new reedy .21 but may get rb if its not out, any other .21 engines under 400 i should look at??? im open to any suggestions

yeah thats a good engine but look for ones that have a big header on them they take more heat better and brands like o.s., sirio, novorossi. those are the brands people race even if thay just started they get good engines for when they get better and go away racing and don't get .28 it will be fast and i know so i got a .21 much better

hi guet a ninja jx21 its o.s made for mugen whith upgrades its a great engine for the truggy and good run times to you can use it whith a jp3 pipe or 2060 o.s pipe

i use it whith jp3 and works perfect 300 engine in amain hobbies

you dont need to use lipo they are very delicate i use 1600 battery packs and they work perfect and do the battery mod whith tie raps on the truggy trust me on the jumps feels better

use 40 oil belive me i have a track @ my country house and i test this truggy alot

guet futaba brushless servos after those you have for steering

your hi tec servo 333 oz .15 speed @ 6 volts not bad those are good better for throtle but the truggy its very light in weight and the 333 oz you can use it on a monster truck or a more heavy truggy or car rc8t its light
the best servo to try for steering its futaba brushless 200 oz .12 very fast sterring for this truggy from .15 to .12 its diference

just giving you my experience i tried those hitec and jr and xp ae servos this xp i have burn like 6 of them suck for me but they are cheaper
i like the hi tec and jr for throttle better not for steering


wait for the reedy engine its not out its in testing mode prototype only the pro racers sponsored bie ae are using it and testing

ninja its already proove or o.s vspec speed those for me are the best and easy to set up
keep in mind adjust the filter cause the engine cant guet dirt alot of new people on the hobbie foguet that
njoy your new toy its a great truggy but you need to do the mods to feel better and competitive
