Its not jerry rigged it was built about 2 or 3 months ago and its worn a bit its gettin rebuilt this weekend, also the reason u see trailers and stuff in back is because they have mulitiple tracks for oval, monster jam

i looked at the manual for, the d8t it looks pretty easy to buld wow !
the only thing i dont like, though is the clutch springs were they have to snap into the clutch nut. i just had that kind of setup before and dint like it

is there a aftermarket clutch setup, with a screw in clutch setup like the losi has. ?

and you said to replace the stock bearings ?

They do to snap int the clutch nut the nut has a rip in it that they snap into, if they sisnt have those the clutches wouldnt work right.

oh i see i use to run a ofna buggy, and it had that similar setup but it dint have a rip in the nut so maybe this one is esaier than.

i know you said that the stock bearings need to be replaced ? and i know you dont run the d8t i was, just wondering how much more heavyier is the d8t compared to the eight -t ?

omg the d8 linkage is much better than the losi one lol.

The stock bearings are really good they last forever, and honestly if your a club racer dont even worry about weight. I see alot of bone stock d8's or t's win big races, on sept 12 im running a bone stock d8 for jbrl, and im 100% sure it will do perfect.

ok cool yea i just want something, that i drive harder and be stable and jump good also . and the losi stock bearings sucked by the way lol

i know you own the d8 but, how do they jump compared to a losi ? do they shoot off the jumps or just nice and smooth.

i know i cant use my eight, starter box for this truggy but i did see a great deal at stormer its $329 with a losi unversal box.

if i get this job i might get it.
