from what i have seen people are using big bores on the SC8, i just dont have the cash now to pick up a set. hope to soon

thanks for all the kind words on my truck. i just keep trying to make it more scale and there just so much fun to race.
Thank-you for your help..after looking at your pictures, you've inspired me to build an SC8, and would like to ask permission to use some of your ideas. I just love the level you took this truck to, it looks just FANTASTIC I'm glad you started this thread!

Are you using LED for your tail lights ?

I've been playing with my Hyper 10 too much and haven finished up my SC8 tail ligth project yet. Now that it getting warmer I need to start on that and get it ready to race.

Yes I'm going to be using 3mm LEDs for the tail lights. I've been working on a switch for the working brake lights. trying to keep it real small and out of sight, same thing with the wires going to the lights.

Right on! Thanks..much appreciated. I already ordered most of what I need..now I just need the body and rims/tires ( I think ). I've wanted one of these since the first picture was released, so I'm quite excited to finally just build one.

..THANKS AGAIN

A few more questions for you..what tire and rim options do we have for SC8 ? Will all the tires that fit on a Slash fit on the SC8 rims without modification ?

Is there any other rims that work besides the stockers ( not that there's anything wrong with them, but more for variety's sake ). Sorry for the questions, but I went to the Proline site to check, and left confused.

Finally got around to putting the tail lights on. At first i mounted them to the body but after taking the body off a couple times i realized thats not going to work. So i mounted them to the rear bumper that way when i take the body and cage off it dont have to mess with the wiring.

Nice work! Lights really make these trucks look uber-scale. The more I research the SC8, the more I can't wait till all my parts arrive! I've got my chassis, diffs, a-arms, TBs with steering mod, all mounted and waiting for the rest to arrive. I still have to order a body, wheels and tires ( I'm a little lost in that department though)

Not to sure, i have only used the two kinds of SC8 rims. But i think i saw someone running some different rims on another site, i'll try to find out for you.

Thank-you for all your help, it's guys like you that make this hobby what it is

I do like the stock rim options, but tire selection would be nice. I see people running Proline Switch tires, and they look great. Also willing to sacrifice raw performance to maintain the scale look ( I have my RC8T for raw performance ) so the Switch looks to be a happy medium. Not sure how they wear though.

After yesterday's club meeting, I officially have no class to race my SC8 in , and would have to purchase a 1/10 scale SC to race SC. I may get thrown into the buggy class with my SC8 because of the lack of buggies at our club ( truggy is by far the biggest class ATM ). We're a pretty flexible club, and things could change down the road though.

I'm so amped about getting this truck built but feel guilty jacking your ideas, but they're so awesome that I can't resist...I'm glad I asked your permission first THANKS AGAIN!

I love my Pro-Line "Switch" tires they hook up great, sometimes a little to good when we first water down the track, but half way through the race and towards the end they hook up great. thinking of getting a pair of stock tires too for when its wet to help me break to back end loose. for rims i have both the first set of stock rims and i'm running the stoke 12 spokes now. you should be able to get a clear body of ebay for pretty cheap, i have seen them for as low as $40 shipped. good luck with the project and get up some pics when you get it done.

I poked around eGay and found some clear bodies for a decent price. Are the Switch tire a real PITA to put on the stock rims ? In any case, I will likely go with them. Thanks again Bong
