+1 I really like Theike's setup. I have went back to 1 dot antisquat and went to 10 degrees kickup. It jumps a little better now and I don't think it took away any steering.

the diffs and shocks are assembled, you just put oil in them. Well, I think the shocks were. I can't remember

Here in the UK the RC8/8B is a fair bit more popular than the D8.. I think the D8 is a great car... specially for the price. I would expect the RC8B overall to be a better option. Generally part support is better, more people run them.. so more likely to have a part if you don't. I have not driven the RC8B or the D8.. I briefly had a RC8 but converted it to elec.. and then sold it soon after.. But, I wasn't all that impressed with the quality.. but that was a used one... and i'm used to Xray Quality.
Heard mixed on the AE range.. some love them, but some do tend to have issues.. with parts breaking.. But you seem to be leaning RC8B from what I can see from your posts.. so go with that one. I choose the Xray, as for me.. quality is a big thing, and a few people I know run them.. and moved from Hyper 9 to it.. and have not regretted my decision 1 bit. Granted there not cheap, but they are durable buggies.

i know if i buy the rc8b i will not have to upgrade anything as far as i believe.I know if i get the d8 i will have to get the longer rear shocks and shock tower and then it will have the standard length for the rear of a buggy.Parts are evrywhere for the rc8b here but not a whole lot of d8 parts,I guess what it is coming down to is the quality.Which ones better in that category.

Well out of those 2 I would say AE.. but AE quality I don't think is anything special.. get the RC8B.. nearly all comment's have been + on the RC8B front lol

Or better yet smell the roses and get a 808!

NO you dont need the rear long shock and tower the stocks work great, I dont understand why people say the d8 needs upgrades because it DONT. I doint get why people look at the D8 as it needs stuff when every D8 ive seen is bone stock and it keeps up with every buggy out there and HALF THE PRICE, Its a sweet buggy. Im not bashing on rc8b because its nice aswell but i know a few switching from b to d8.

i wouln't need them i would want them because my track is a little rough and often see d8's getting out of control because doesn't have much travel in the rear.

Its not always the rear that causes that it is setup and not driving smooth, and car full throttle through bumps will be rough and not handle, anyways the shocks are like 100 bucks with tower thats still cheaper than a rc8b, seems ur mind is made toward the rc8b though so im not ganna try to change ur mind hope u like the rc8b.
