87mm front, 101mm rear which is pretty much full droop (set screws in a little to prevent over-extension). I noticed after Saturday, my front left changed to 81.64mm? Not sure how many heats I ran like that, but it either changed on its own, or someone did it for me.

I had mine back out the bottom of the arm and limited my travel to about 50% (noticed it right before the sound of the tone a couple weeks ago during a main!).

I still run mine but I put locktite on them. I guess they will chew into your chassis over time as well. They are basically a pain in the ass! My 8ight has the same droop screws but theres a little stopper on the chassis for wear.

Must be common then. Mine was the same, set screw sticking out about 50% from the arm. Screwed in though, weird.

I took mine out. They were doing the same thing. Some guys are drilling and taping the chassis to install a flat head screw. This way the droop screw doesn't keep eating away at the chassis. I think a drop of ca glue would be better than locktite if you are going to run them.

Take out and run full droop front and rear. depending on your shock position you can unscrew your shock end to achieve the same droop. stock positions are F 1/outside R 2/inside .... im running aaron lane set up which is F- 1 outside R 2/outside. shock end unscrewed 2 turns front and rear


Best thing to do it test to see what you like

the original 8ight didnt have those droop screw pads. Losi learned on the 2.0 to put them in. Idk why they didnt do it on the scte, i guess the new lightened chassis has them.

I'm planning on heading out to Fear Farm on Friday for 6pm-10pm practice. But is it just way too hot at 6pm, do most show up after sunset?

Sick! I wonder how long before they have a conversion kit for the 22 buggy?

Yea, I'll put a little CA on them. I like having them in just to keep the load off my shock pistons while I'm using the barrel-roll tactic to apex corners.

I have the screw mod on my chassis. Thanks Steve!

Jeff, just a heads up, loctite has been known to dissolve some plastics. In the heli world, it's loctite on all metal to metal and CA on all metal to plastic. We put that s..t on everything!! Guess I'll have to start doing it to my land based vehicles too.
