Aaarrghh..... My Hyper8 let me down today ..... I lost the front diff while I was holding third position in newbee class ...... I had to drive 2WD for 1 extra lap until I decided to stop completely because my engine was screaming and my car was really slow.

Are the gears inside the diff too close or too far ? .......... or is it something else ?

Thanks for anyone help.

Guys having issues,

This isn't a flame, or intended to be one, but are you guys performing regular maintenance on your H8s?

It sounds like many of the symptoms you all are experiencing are due to improper mesh or shimming of diffs.

The arms do develop slop where the hub hinge pins are, but there are mods described over at www.nitrohouse.com that take care of this issue. You may also upgrade to the cnc hubs in order to mitigate the issue, but it is unecessary if you perform the mods...

I know ton's of people that have run the H8. Yes it has issues. Yes they are easily correctable/avoidable. Spares are dirt cheap on Ebay.

Sorry to hear about your problems. Some of them may be due to inexperience in the sport, or just plain 'abuse' (I.e. like the kind my buggy receives from it's crackhed driver ~ Moi!).

All buggies have issues. Some have major issues. Luckily for us, the Hyper 8 just has minor issues that are correctable. The new 8.5 probably goes a long way in terms of correcting known issues.

This platform is one of, if not 'the' most tuneable and best handling buggy out there. The Losi is probably the better jumper, but even the Losi has some well documented minor issues. Spare Losi parts are also hella expensive compared to the H8/8.5.

It seems to have an underdog reputation, or some sort of anti-establishment following. I think this is changing with the Euro-Worlds win. Battle is a speed demon with this buggy...

Has anyone come up with a good trick or a makeshift tool for removing the bearings from the CNC knuckles (Without damaging them)?

I'm having a heck of a time getting mine out to clean 'em. I may have to remove the seal and clean them in the knuckle - I.e. clean them in-place...

I was wondering if anyone knows where to obtain a good bearing pulling tool for the 8x14mm (Typical 1/8th scale buggy bearing size)?

Thanks in advance!

Is there chassis difference between Hyper8 pro and Hyper8.5 pro ?

I'm looking to buy chassis replacement for my hyper8 pro.

ofnawarehouse.com only has standard chassis 8.5 pro and +4mm rear

I'm just want to make sure the standard chassis between 8 and 8.5 is the same length and everything.

Thank you.

the H8.5 chassis is longer than the H8.. get the one 2mm longer front & rear.

note: i think that you will need longer center drive bones wth the 8.5 chassis..

cheers..

This is the FR2 chassis kit that you need to update H8 to the lastest specs. Too bad they are hard to find at a decent price. A year ago, EBay had these for $45 or so.

This is probably the cheapest price around.
