Any tip to solve this ??

thanks in advance guys ...

Pat

Hey Pato, if the tune is correct then the springs can be suffering from fatigue. This could be caused by several things but most of the time is by over adjusting the screws. This causes the spring to colapse on itself and then the spring becomes incosistant. I would try new springs and being very carefull not to over tighten them, specially when new. What I do is use the smallest driver (in diameter) posible so I don't overtorque the screws. Then I unscrew them. After a couple of tanks I set the screw again and this should be set without any problems. Let us know how it went so we can learn from him as well.

Hey TOM...I think you should you the wing/lip that comes with the body, I think it helps the car perform like it was ment to! I just noticed that looking @ a lot of the WARRIOR body pic's in this thread, that a lot of them aren't installed...it can only help & your going to need it @ the DIAMOND!


...it looks like nothing important...but it's there and works for me.

so did anyone see the article in july issue of rc driver?
Tony Phalen took a L8ight and a tekno v4 chassis to make gt car.
yes this is the easy route as apposed to the custom work done on this forum.
i will post the pics of the 777 buggy conversion soon as i sent them to greg vogel...he is racer from my area as well as the editor of driver. they really enjoy custom versions of cars as seen on this forum.
so with that said i have a losi buggy tekno v3 chassis collecting dust because i received the 8ight-e 2.0 and was thinking of converting it to a gt car as well, i found the p/n for the front n rear shock tower but need the bumber n rear body mount....does anyone know the p/n for those 2?

The parts from the L8ight should fit right on you 2.0, including the bumbers and rear body mount when you use the L8ight shock towers.

Tony posted pictures of his car awhile back, very slick and very fast from what I understand.

I would sell the 777 stuff and go Losi unless you want to race in a nitro class (I suspect Losi is working on a car with a 2 speed already.)
