Default Anyone still competetive with an 8T 1.0?

Found one NOS for cheap, mostly a basher but will hit the track from time to time. Will I keep pace with the 2.0's or get completely smoked? I'm using a .28 mill.

Do they kill throttle servos like the 2.0? I saw a mention on here somewhere that they fixed that issue with the 2.0, but could not find the explanation how they fixed it??? Should I add rubber bushings between the radio tray and chassis?

Any other things to look out for with the 1.0? It's hopped up pretty good... kings head radio tray brace, chassis braces, front top plate, servo saver, extended hubs, etc. Any advice is appreciated. I love to wrench, but love driving more.

You can be competitive with it, but it will take a good driver. The 2.0 and other newer truggies are a lot easier to drive fast and are more consistent. I'm not gonna say that you can't compete with it, but it is definitely harder.

i do agree with you but i depends on what racing you do and what level class you are in. and and somewhat of a good driver just got to stop crashing sometimes.

The 1.0 is every bit as capable as any other truck on the market. The difference between it and the 2.0 does not make up for any measurable difference in driving skill.

Plus, you don't have to race a vehicle that looks like a tadpole.

Thanks for the flex-tune chassis tip!

Any racing would be club racing, sportsman class, just for fun.

Can anyone answer the throttle servo question? Will it be an issue with this truck?

And whats the difference between 1.0 and 2.0 fuel tanks? I removed that extra piece from inside.

the throttle servo issue wont be a problem if you set the linkage right or run a radio tray stiffner and a o-ring under the battery case.

just make sure you follow the extra manuel that losi gives you.

i think the 2.0 t tank has a better seal than the 1.0 t tank im not exactally sure but i havnt had any problems with it.


do get the 1/2 wheel hex extenders with 0 offset wheels and a alum steering saver piece.
