Tires, Differential fluid and sway bars are 3 things that make a big difference in how the SC8 handles.
Pro-Line has several tires out right now that fit the SC8, just look for offerings that are 2.2"x 3.0". They will be marketed to SC10s, but we share the same wheel diameter.
Differential fluids (3 diffs) will change how the truck handles and accelrates/ brakes considerably as well.
Sway bars you dont hear too many people mention on these trucks but I found them to make a good difference for me. The sways our SC8s come with from AE are the thinnest they make.
Also the link below is to a thread we have dedicated to the greatness of all things SC8!
Enjoy....

Wheel diameter is the same, but how the wheels attach is different.
SC8s use the same hex size on their wheels as 8th buggy does.
As of now AE is the only one making bodies for these trucks.
It would be tough to top the AE body as its super realistic looking, IMO.
