OK thats good that you have the pipe and a set of wheels and tires. The D8T only comes with wheels so at least it'll save you a few $

I have had only one practice session with the K8T, so I have not really tested the durability of the kit yet. However, I can tell you that it is a very well put together kit with high quality parts.

Right out of the box, the pro kit has lightened out-drives, 2 piece center diff mount, aluminum chassis braces, and aluminum top plate. On the track, I was really impressed with the responsiveness and agility of the truck. It reacts very quickly to steering inputs, almost like a buggy does. Because it is so responsive, I have to relearn how to turn into corners. The suspension is nice a smooth and seems to work very well on the truck.

Everything on the K8T is tight. Coming from losi, I was used to many components having slop or a loose feel. This is a strong point for the losi, that is why it is so forgiving; and it can run on many different tracks with the same setup. The caster is not so forgiving, and setup will play a much bigger role on the truck. If it is not right, you will have a hard time on the track; however, if it is right you will have the potential to run very fast.

Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with the kit, and I do believe I will be a much faster driver once I get everything dialed and adjust my driving style.

Here is a little clip of me running on the track for the first time. I know my track looks like Fred Sanford backyard, but it my track nonetheless

Right now I am using 100%. My track is pretty tight so I might leave it at 100%. That was my first time out, so I'm hoping after I burn a couple of gallons thru her I'll get used to it.

Engine either OS or Nova
Servos savox 1268
Tires depend on the track city block are pretty universal
Pipe depends on the enginenn
Once you figure it out I would contact Jaz240 he will get it to you and put a smile on your face
