I know everybody has their preference on suspension springs and what not but I am here to tell you that the stock kit springs work great and and from what I saw this weekend and many other weekends by the awesome driving display that the Weatherholt boys and Tyler Jones put on at the MSCS Race that this buggy doesn't need anything else or and other brand springs. Just change the stock rear springs to green and your golden. Thank you to Mike and Randy for all the setup help. It was much appreciated.

Hey guys i am looking at some different options and thinking of switching brands and trying the 3.0. I am wondering what parts or hop ups are needed on this car out of the box?

Drill the extra camber link holes in the rear shock tower. Set it up and go racing!

Another little mod which is a good idea to do, is to put a bearing in the throttle swivel arm thingo. Drake explains it here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp8gIEm8BbQ

Instead of using the LOSA6912 bearing which is $20, use the LOSB1728 bearing which is only $5 for the pack (use a 5mm drill bit). You'll need to use a 2x12mm cap head screw and M2 lock nut instead of the kit screw (make sure u use the washer as well). When you tighten up the nut, be careful not to over tighten it as it will bind. No more slop and the screw will never back out either.

Part numbers:
LOSB1728 - 2x5x2.5mm bearing
VTR235006 - 2x12mm cap head screw
VTR236012 - M2 lock nut

Pic below of how it looks.

Is anyone aware of an "uncut" body for the 8ight 3.0?

Another choice for a bearing for the mod for us here in the U.S. is get it from Avid for a $1 and it's flanged which is what you really want for this mod.

Any other brand that fits the 2.0 will fit the 3.0 as well... Hope this helps.

Car is great out of the box. Only thing i added was aluminum top plate and aluminum servo saver arm.

And I also drilled the rear lower camber link hole.
