Default Losi 8ight T 1.0 Upgrades

I just bought a losi 8ight T 1.0 truggy. Looking to Upgrade it to 2.0 spec. What Would give me the most improvement in the handling department, Wider arms, longer chassis etc?

I ran mine all last year and it handled great. I upgraded the shock towers to Kingheadz aluminum (Waaaaaayyy better!) and installed Hitec servos (645MG throttle/brake , 985MG steering) and a JP 5port .21 engine (Novarossi) but for the most part I ran it pretty much stock all year and it kicked ass!

Convert 8IGHT-T 1.0 to 8IGHT-T 2.0

Has anyone created an 8ight 2.0 from 1.0

I run stock wheels with different compounds for the losi xxt,s. I think you should try driving it with the stock setup and make your own decision[YOUTUBE][/YOUTUBE]

I went with the extensions to run 0 offset wheels . Nice as all AKA and most other premounts are on 0 offset wheels . Plus if you need to borrow or lend out some wheels with your buddies that have 0 offset wheels .
