there probety going to make a new model of it im guessing.
the rumor mills spread stuff very quick , the st-rr is not discontinued , it still handles great , it still wins races at national and club levels , if you ever have any questions i am sure there are a few team drivers or team pit guys on here that would be more than willing to answer any question you may have



the mugen rear body mounts work awesome to mount the rc8t body they require precicion drilling of two 3mm holes though , put a piece of foam underneath your fuel tank , keep ring/pinion gears shimmed tight but not too tight , do not set your brakes too tight , i'm sure there are a few more i'm forgetting but there are others to help

Foam under the fuel tank it just for extra protection, I don't do it and I haven't had any problems with tanks. Just make sure your tank is a little loose when you screw it down on the posts, let the rubber grommets do their job.

Yes, no backlash and still smooth. Very, very, little grit if any at first. Run it for 4-5 tanks and check the mesh again, if there's any play add a small shim and you should be good for a while.

i have, use the rubber groments on my( losi eight-t tank) and always tighten them to where there snug i guess it gave up on me on the last race of the season because i had a pretty high idle and it was running like crap lol.

thats good to know about to loosen the bolts a little bit.


i dont know man i wonder if the diff shimming will drive me crazy i dont have any on my losi eight -t diffs.

The K truggy is awesome, is old model but still gets podiums and it can compete with the other truggies . All models are good you just need practice ,practice,practice and to find your set up,
I have raced in a lot of races at national and at club races lot of podiums with my ST-RR , i came 2nd at the championship of the one club race track .the first guy again with ST-RR , the national champion here was again ST-RR
In my country the only truggies which race are Losi,Mugen,Kyosho no other brand! and i think two xrays ...
Now i will sell my Kyosho ST-RR because it needs a lot of changes after 15+ races (i DNF only at one race because of broken tank ) , i will buy for 2011 again a ST-RR kit... i am loving it

There is no doubt this truck is awesome. If they were to come out new they would not have to change much. Would like to see a rear bushing toe block setup, front and rear cnc hubs and an anodize color change to the brown The rest is just dialed.
