Default xt8 drivers!

hi guys, those u had or have the xt8
I think there is a potential problem at the steering arm to the servo saver. it looks pretty flimpsy from where the ball end resides on the plastic. just think it will pop out in one of the hard landings

any solutions?

Looks can be deceiving, it's not an issue. Just drive the thing.

Agreed! Just drive it! I have been running the xt8 for 2 seasons now and never had a single ball end fail. If you want, put a washer over the top so if for some crazy reason it should try to dislodge itself, the washer will hold it in place long enough to finish the race. I wouldn't worry about it though. Good luck!

I've had some pretty horrific crashes with my 08 Spec XT8 while learning to drive.....only thing I have ever broken was the shock shaft in one of my big bores...and that was after it met a 2X4 dead on off a jump ;-)

Bulletproof Truggy as far as I am concerned!
