I'm always having fun. And if I can find a little success while doing that, bonus.

Luck is always a part of it, but thanks for the kind words! I'm gonna do my best this weekend...and I'm very excited about running my 8IGHT-T!

Any motor that can get an LST2 moving that fast, must have some serious grunt!

I'll see you at the Nitro Maxx Challenge :-) Finally attending that race with a big truck!

Factory seal - Stock setup, but with 40 wt. in the front, and one size smaller rear sway bar. Works really good!

party_wagon - Uh? Haha. If no one posts the answer by tomorrow I'll grab a pair of calipers and check it out for you.

I'm just trying to figure out how much room I have to work w/ before I order new lipos. Differant companies build them to slightly differant dimensions. They all seem to take up the same amount of area, but some are slightly wider or longer. I realy don't need how tall it is. If push comes to shove i'll just dremel the top part of the slot out so that it fits.

partywagon - That space is about the length of a 7-cell pack, so that shouldn't be an issue. As far as width, well, 4200's can be crammed in there...haha.

Cody - After bump-ups, I was 4th in the B in buggy and 6th in the B in truggy. I bumped up in gas truck and finished 12th in the A, after breaking a driveshaft (the joint got packed with sand and didn't want to play anymore).

I run Trinity Ni-MH receiver packs in all my cars.

I'm off, to the 2007 U.S. Gas Offroad Championships (or "Gas Champs") at Sun Valley Speedway, in Burbank, CA. I'll be home Monday.

It would realy be helpful if I could actualy get the measurements in mm. Differant packs come in differant sizes. Yeah, I know that the mamba max packs will fit, but there are other packs which are cheaper and have differant dimensions which I would like to try.

This way. The straight ribs are on the inside and the angle ones point inward.

I just got back from the U.S. Gas Championships at Sun Valley Speedway in Burbank. Finished 8th in all three classes, haha. Not bad I suppose. Truhe TQ'd buggy and truggy but ran into problems in both main events.

High points of the weekend? Justin Watson leading a strong showing for the 8IGHT buggy in the Sportsman class, and Tyler Willmon being the only privateer in the Pro Buggy main, with a Losi!

party_wagon - I'll make myself a note to measure it tomorrow. Sorry for the wait.

M2 - Like Casper said, that's how those tires are run most often. Mounting the straight ribs on the outside will make the tires more aggressive and edgy, but your truck will be smoother and have more total steering with the straight ribs on the inside.
