I reccomend stiffer springs on most tracks. Especially the rear end, try yellow AE springs. Make sure they are V2 springs which have a slightly smaller Diameter.

Awesome. Thank you very much for the set-up tips. And I did hear from a few people that stiffer springs help. So I will look into everything you mentioned. Also, is that stock plastic servo horn any good or do you guys get an aluminum one?

I just purchased one also. Was wondering if when at the track if it is like 1/10 scale with the motor. Gear accordingly, motor temps? Also any set up tips or where to look at different set ups. I will be purchasing the pillow balls and other upgrades already in this thread. Canít wait to drive it. Got it for my son want to make the move to nitro, and figured this would get him use to the size of the truck and a way bigger track. Thanks guys

Default 1/8 brushless motor

Whatís up guys I have a RC8T3.1e on the way with a rx8 gen 3 and a reedy motor 2000 kv. Was wondering on opinions on motors. I know reedy is a good motor but, how about the trinityís, or other brands? Another question, is 2000 kv a good size. I heard 1900 was a good fit just donít know how much more 2000 kv is on power, and the battery should hold longer with lower kv, right? I know in 10th scale at least in stock the more you pay the better the motor. Just looking for some input thanks.

any of the major brands of motors are very good, HW, Tekin, performa, orion(hw) etc.

if you ever get the chance, try a HW xr8 series(sct or plus) and a matching HW g2 motor in full sensored mode, smoooooth as..
