There should be one for the RC8T CE.

If you've found anything, please advise!! I've looked everywhere, and can't seem to find help, nor setup sheets anywhere... Primarily I'm looking for diff weight help, as the 7-7-7 stock FT setup is crap. Have heard about 20 peoples' opinions, and would like to see something from a pro-level racer if possible. My torque, acceleration, and overall speed is KILLER! The problem lies in traction, primarily on straight aways and biiiiig sweepers. HELP!!!

There is a Team Associated Truggy tips and info link. It has a heap of info on set up tips and general info. I have recently retired my FT and bought a CE. Tough as nails handles well and responds well to set up changes.

RC Nitro Central or Amain Hobbies. Steve at RCNC is great to deal with and keeps a far range of parts. But in 18 months of running this truggy I have broken one arm and bent one front axle. Mad crash with an steel pipe. After I hit the pipe I was able to keep racing after I straightend the axle a bit to stop it hitting the shock, the arm was broken through the bracing but it held together for the rest of the days racing. These things are tough.replaced a couple of pinions but that was a result of bearings failing. The track that I was racing on was hard on bearings due to very fine dust.

thanks

I went through the should I change brands before I bought the new RC8TCE.I had upgraded my FT to basically what was included with the newer truggy and was really impressed with the way it handled. A couple of blokes that I raced against had the Losi's and the Mugen's were the current must have truggy which I almost bought but the issues they have with the front arms put me off. The other brands handle really well, the mugen looks more stable on smooth tracks but the RC8T turns in better IMO and handles a rougher surface better and as I said before they are a very tuff truggy. Mine has taken a flogging and still keeps on going. I have run a OS.28 which was a monster of an engine and all kinds of fun to drive. The harder you push them the better they seem to drive. I would and have recommended these anyone that is looking for a truggy. Never driven one as an electric but as a nitro they rock.

The RC8TCE (Championship Edition)is the latest truggy. The RC8FT is still a good unit which had the following upgrades. The ABCD plates are alloy and allow more tuning adjustment. The battery box has been moved forward as an option.the shock towers are alloy, FT has carbon fibre. And the steering mod that was performed on the FT to give it better turn in is standard on the CE and they come with the new JConcepts punisher body. Other than that they are the same chassis,diffs etc.
