I have a couple spare bones if you need one, but, they are not perfectly straight either. Unless yours are bent beyond getting back to almost straight, its not worth getting new ones. Bending front dog bones after a hard hit or crash is a common problem with the RC8s.

The bones to the Thunder Tiger S3 are much stronger and a direct fit, but, they are only sold with the axles:

I removed the axles and installed the S3 dog bones on my RC8Be and that seemed to solve the problem.

Default LCRC Track conditions

The track survived the severe storm that hit our region over night and will be in prime shape for this weekend's racing. Our parking area on the other hand is water logged and really soft. Please keep in mind when parking this weekend that "good" parking will be limited so please park close to the guy next to you so we have room for everyone. If you have any questions about parking please see me when you arrive and I will find a good spot for you.

More updates coming soon.

Thanks,

Kevin
