Here's the link to the 1.0 thread:
Losi 8ight building and setup

Car runs great out of the box. CVD condoms or heat shrink on the F&R CVDs for sure. CRC no pop balls or the mod are a must also. If you're running the original radio tray, be sure to go the Losi website and download the radio tray addendum. Follow the instructions exactly, and you shouldn't have throttle servo problems. Switching to the 2.0 radio tray is probably cheaper than buying the KHZ brace. Loctite the shidnit out of the little screw the holds the shock pistons in, let it cure for a couple of hours before you fill the shocks. M2C F&R toe block system is awesome. A little pricey, but adjustable and you don't have to worry about the stupid plastic hinge pin holder caps breaking. It's a great car, put the Truhe setup on it and go from there.

Default Break it then upgrade it

That's what i usually do with any of my RC's. I am interested in the servo horn though. Why go there?

If you mean the mention of changing to an aluminum servo arm for the steering, the stock will not last you long. It is plastic with a set of plastic spline inserts to fit the various brands of servos. One good whack and that insert will strip from the servo arm, and it will never stay again.

Replacing that immediately is the best $5 you will ever spend on this buggy, for sure
