Sounds like this buggy is a winner! Hopefully no more gas tank issues. Let's keep this thread going. Any recommended setups?

The updated chassis is a running change, so same part number. The suspension arms and a few other parts are also running changes.

There is already another thread going, if you read through the last 5 or 10 pages or so, you can probably find most of the info you're looking for already discussed.

i buy mine friday 26 6pm and i ran the first tank the 27 9AM (only 7hours to build, i finish to build in the night

So in only 2tank, the car ran how i like, in comparaison with my HB D8 lightweight, after 3 gallon, the car dosent ran good

BUT!!! 2time with my RC8B i lost the screw of the front knukle

I dont understant why!

May be i take the CNC Machined

For the setup, i run stock, the only difference is with the wheelbase, i ran the long wheelbase.

I see the car flip easy and need to drive smooth

make sure you get the bushing set right use a flat head and turn it till you feel it set in and lock tight the piss out of it

Ok, so is the tank finally right? I had one of the first run rc8's and the fuel tank issues killed me. It wore me out chasing a tune and not being able to hold the car by the wing without starving it for fuel. The car did not seem to like a rough track either, but keep in mind this was pre associated big bores. I told myself i would consider driving the buggy again if all the little bugs were worked out.

Porkchop, how is the new buggy compared to the mugen?

the tank is fixed!
i also ran the first car and loved it but got rid be4 the parts kit came out
the new shocks tower and big bores make it feel like a total differnet car i never drove anything that so easy to drive

how was the switch and the compraring

the mugen was a good car i give it that yet i always had to work my balls of to be on pace with change 100000 thing to ever track i went to get to go fast!

with the ae car i been faster since day one with it and as i taken the time to change stuff and work on the set up it got better and easer to drive

oh and can you say hole fu8king steering haha

so for the switch it was a good move for me! i only pick up 30 secs on a 32 sec a lap track
