Yup, wheels are standard. I hope the hardware thing is all but forgotten when the car comes out and people start driving it!

Looks like the Eight just got it first win. It sweep TQ, and 1st and 2nd places in its debut race at The Farm. Travis and Adam were the drivers.

Check it out!

Sorry, I misread the it. The buggy did do very well. Of course you had the Drake piloting it too.

LST uses SAE hardware and most of it is 4-40. Not sure what grade the stock screws are, but my high grade alloy steel SAE flat head screws have a slightly larger head diameter that requires the countersunk holes to be opened up more with a countersink drill bit.

As for the screws on the new Losi 8ight, don't worry, I'll have both the SAE and Metric guys covered ...LOL Hopefully they'll use 8-32 hardware on the diffs and motor mount (close to 4mm hardware) and then 5-40 or 6-32 hardware elsewhere. 4-40 is smaller than 3mm. 6-32 is about the same as 3.5mm.

The fact that most outdoor racing today is nitro-based is forcing me to look into other options for racing. No matter how much I dislike nitro engines and the mess they bring, if I want to race, I'm going to have to consider it eventually. Nothing else on the market has really interested me until now. Losi producing this car has a LOT to do with my interest.
the mess is easy to get over once you start running...i know soo many who didnt really like gas until they ran (insert name's) car and all of the sudden they have one...i used to think nitro was overrated...running just about electric this side of an EMAXX...was suprised ar how much fun nitro was...


and on the threads note...i think you are right...aaron or whoever said it...i think there are a good number of people that will see Losi and expand their pits to another class of racing...

How can you offer both a metric and SAE screw kit for the same car? I know that some metric and SAE sizes are pretty close but won"t some sizes be too tight while others a little loose?

I'll make a SAE replacement screw kit for the Losi 8ight as soon as the car is available. It'll come with my SAE Grade 8 black oxide alloy steel hex head screws. So it will be a direct replacement kit.

For the guys that want to use Metric screws and drivers, I plan on making a metric conversion kit. The kit will include metric Grade 12.9 black oxide alloy steel hex head screws along with the necessary drill bits to pre-drill any of the plastic parts for the metric screws. If any threads are in aluminum, I'll also include any metric taps as well.

Best regards,
