The more E-Scales the better!

Jason, I'm running a 1700kv motor with a 19t pinion. I would think 18t would be a good starting point with a 1900kv motor. I have a spare body but it depends on the batteries you are using. Are they hard case?

Blue JConcepts 7s are good but I think Bar Codes would be a little better. M3 Inside Jobs work too.

Couple tips on building RC8s
1 sand the diff cups so they are true and less prone to leak. I ran mostly 5-5-3 or 4-4-2 indoors this season.
2 take your time with the front steering knuckle bushings. The top is different than the bottom and make sure they are 'keyed' in.
3 Put a little black automotive RTV under the center diff riser to secure it perminantly in place. It makes it easy to rem/reset diffs and do pinion changes.

I guess Ed , Travis and I aren't enough competition?!? Or maybe you just want it to be at least 5 against 1 on the Hyper!

With bow-ties you'll be sliding all over the place. I tried it before.

Default FUNCTION FROM

Do you have yours ready to go? There's room for it in the "also ran" category, along with all the other AE's
