Reguar club race on Sunday. No breakage. Normally the only time I don't finish a race is down to crappy Rx packs, not tightening screws down enough or just being to lazy to actually maintain and look after my car so that it can break at exactly the wrong moment, lol.

Two weekends ago at an RC Pro race:

For my buggy One lipo battery shorted out/or quit/or died. It just plain didn't work. Oh and one lower shock spring retainer missing.

For my truggy my voltage regulator wiring broke. The regulator has been in place for two years and never moved so the constant jumping and bumps just took a toll on it.

Nothing!! I too have a Xray 808 and after having a D8 it is just pure joy. I have not replaced anything other then bearings,clutches/spring, fluids (shocks/diffs) and fuel. Oh I did replace a front suspention arm due to it getting beat up but this was just for my own piece of mind, didn't break. I think that I have about 3-4 gallons on it now and I bought it used.

I am not going to bash any other car as I have not owned anything other then the D8, but the 808 has been great and I am faster with it to boot!

2 spur gears (motor mount kept coming loose) and both left rear wheel bearings. I'm running an RC10GT (I'm old school!)

Ha. I saw a buddy of mine do that once. Three of us sitting on the tailgate of his truck and running oval racing in a vacant lot to the side of the truck. He comes around the corner and gets a little wide and turns the wrong way into the front truck tire. Could feel it pretty good sitting on the tailgate. Forget what all broke...
Glad you got things striaghtened out. I may do the same to have 1 backup chassis left

He wants to know what parts he can to sell to the losi drivers.


Just Joking with the losi guys.

air8 ,I was just wondering cuz integra keeps saying that the X-RAY is an exact copy of the losi(leads me to believe he's never seen a 808) & now he says he has friends at his track that use the parts interchangably. So now since he's seen the 808 with losi parts installed he can tell me exactly what parts he saw used on the 808 & I will go check by borrowing parts from my losi friends & install them on my 808,that way when he says their exact copys I can keep my big mouth shut & say yep or say he needs to actually look at an X-RAY in person & not from a front view photo in a magazine.

I would bet the front and rear arms are a direct fit. I mean look at them. Xray arms almost have the losi logo stamped on them. I would also take a bet that rear upright hubs would work. Again this is all just going by looks though. I don't think anyone can deny that Xray copied losi in a big way with the 808. Look at the cars side by side and you will see it. Look at the geometries, shock positioning being most prominent. You will see it.
