We average about 3 d8's, 2/3 mugens, 2/3 xrays and the d8 is always up there and the mugen and xrays guys are fast at our track.

Note this was first practice so driver errors are common this is just to let you see how it does. Its 100% stock other than servo horn.

Driver is running a werks b6 with werks pipe, spektrum dx2.0, and jr servos 9100 steering and 8711 throttle.

sounds good to me yea i replaced, my steering arm to a alum one on my losi i think every kit should just include the alum horn, i mean most people do replace them and never use them.

when i get though i think, im going to get the big bore shocks since i do race on a rough track .

youll have to burn the HB servo horn. and the D8T comes with big bores....

but if you need a good setup for rough track on it send me a PM. mine works fantastic in rough stiff. i also hope for a rough track/ late main
