Default 8ight 2.0 buggy & sirio evo3

Just upgraded my well worn eight to an eight 2.0

what steering horns do you suggest to use as for first time I tried the losi plastic kit one with and insert to fit an ACE servo, It stripped after first bad crash.....

What do you people advise and also any checks needed on the servo saver.

Finally

What head shims should be fitted (size) when running the Sirio Evo3 on 30% nitro.

Buggy is great for first time out, still needs breaking in but I'm liking it already.

Thanks Mark

Hi Guys

thanks for the update. I had a plastic non Losi horn on my old eight but thought i'd try the Losi one for first run.

I will change it to the alu servo horn or try an original ace horn.

Whats the alu servo saver do, make operation smoother? and I take it this is only available for the 2.0 as I believe the saver differs from 1st Losi.

Cheers Mark
