they pretty much go in without any problems. you just need the drive cups that go onto the pinion. check the lengths tho cause hobao may have different dogbone lengths

Genius, only part # that I've been able to find for them is OFN28070 97MM AND 104MM

How does the dog bone stay center in the drive cups?

Silver shims are placed on top of the ackerman and the black ones are on the bottom.

thats the one.

you can put a little peice of fuel tube to keep the dogbone centered in the drive cups. I only put fuel tube towards the rear of the dogbone since thats the direction acceleration forces it towards. Leave enough play for the dogbones, you have to consider the amount of chassis flex.

Hey guys,

I just recently installed a set of Losi 8ight shocks on my FTE car with some very encouraging results.

Shock Build: Since the pistons of the car is the same all the way around with the Jammin' Big Bores, I used 55 pistons in the Losi shocks since they are the middle piston choice. Fine tuning them will come later. I used 45wt Losi oil in the front and 35wt Losi oil in the rear. I had to use the Jammin long rod ends on both the front and rear of the car. Without them they won't work properly.

Springs: The stock springs you get with the kit won't work. You have to use the harder truggy spring to achieve proper ride height. I used the black springs in the front, which I had to screw the collar down quite a bit to acheive ride height. I used the Gray springs in the back which seemed to be perfect as I only had to screw the collar down in the back about 8mm to achieve proper ride height. I am going to have my LHS get me a set of the gray springs for the front and see how that works. I think that the Losi black springs will be a good choice for a blown out very rough track.

Overall: I was very pleased with the car. I noticed zero problems with the shocks. You do have to grind some of the shock tower material (both F&R) off to allow for clearance. Other than that, you can use all of the other jammin hardware when mounting the shocks on the car. The car definetly jumped and flew more consistant, as it was planted better on the track. I tested on a red-clay dry as a popcorn fart dusty/BUMPY surface. It absorbed the bumps alot better and made for a smoother more consistant run. Over all, until we find something out about the Jammin' BIG Bores these will fill the void if not work as a permanant fix for those of you who want the BIG Bore on the car without having to wait.

Once I clean the car, I will take some photos.

-Seann

Yes it is, I noticed an immediate difference on the car with them. It's a vast improvement over the stock ones. Don't dog something you haven't tried.

how do you already have access to them? and what i was trying to say is how can they improve on the 13mm when they are already so good? a bigger bore shock only provides more damping for larger jumps. but i guess that's what we need for our motocross style american tracks.
