Are DE plates available? Last I looked they weren't. We bought Sumo plates for our cars.

Got a link? Don't see anything on Amain or DE's website that says it fits the X.

They don’t say x specific - is there that much difference between the chassis?

just went to the sumo site and it says the x uses different plates. So these won’t work.

Not sure if the hole location is the same or not. I don't have any of my 3.0/4.0 stuff left to compare it to.

just finished building a 8ight-XE, the Protek servo and TLR aluminum servo horn Iím running kicks the drag link at a silly angle (up toward the back). Is it important to get that link as level as possible?

Default Noob question

The allen set screws in the control arms close to the chassis appear to be travel limiters. I don't see anything about them in the set up sheet so how do these get adjusted?

Thanks

I'd say yes, only from experience. I needed to ship my link 2mm down on the servo horn side. When it was raised , it would have a very bad bind issue when steering was turned to steering lock. Once shimmed, the bind was gone, and now had lo actual lock to lock steering with ZERO bind. I hope this helps.

Those are Droop Screws. In the most basic form, they will set your installed shock length and angles of the arms while there is zero weight on the wheels. Iím not sure how people are setting the overall shock length as per the setup sheet, but this adjustment would change the shock length once they are installed.
