But, I drove an E-buggy yesterday and was probably about one second per lap faster,... without my radio, and tires of choice.

...I'm feeling like I might have to! lol.

Any tips for a dry dusty clay track for 1/8 scale with big jumps?

Default Aluminum Front Chassis Brace (TLR341014) not compatible

Anyone looking to get this upgrade, which is listed on TLR website as well in the actual manual from the box to be compatible with the 8ight X-E, WILL NOT fit the 8ight X-E. This will ONLY fit the 8ight X (nitro); the chassis for both are slightly different. TLR/Horizon Hobbies are aware of this but I just wanted to give anyone a heads-up before they go and purchase this like I did.

That aluminum front brace was never intended to fit the 8XE. Unfortunately, it was mislabeled on the website as being compatible with both. Should be fixed soon.

thanks
