Default What to look for, 8ight 2.0

I have been skimming through the forum on the new Losi 8ight 2.0. The two major issue I see people having are the plastic molding on the servo saver and hairline cracks in the drive shafts. Are there any other issues that I should be aware of??

ive never heard of the servo saver issue so i cant say about that...


but as far as the driveshaft issue they are aware, i had one that wasnt cracked but it was bent from factory and i asked the guy while i had them on the phone and he said they had people looking to resolve the issue, but he wouldnt say anythin else so idk what they are doing to fix it.

I think what integra meant was although a couple guys may have had a fractured driveshaft it is not a common problem. After 6 months the first I have heard of it was the post not to long ago.

Okay. Thats good to know.

So I am assuming the servo saver issue is not a frequent problem as well?
