I never had a servo problem with my 8ight. I used the rubber grommets on my servos, and thin pieces of fuel tube on both sides of the servo arm.

Thanks for the info on the 20% or 30% fuel.
I think i'll stick with 20 since it's easier to tune and the engine will last longer.

ya in my 8ight i went through 3 servos. i finally just re-workd the entire breaks and put in my 4th servo. for now it is working fine and those gromets work really well. as well as some softer fuel tubing on the breaks.

If you are using the original throttle servo that came with the buggy you might want to think about upgrading the servo. The JR 270 and JR 590 servos just do not last as long as the premium servos do. It has nothing to do with throttle setup or the buggy just a cheaper servo.

does anyone know whats up with te 8ight and throttle servo's. right now im on my 4th servo, possibly on my fifth, and ive only had it about a month. i took apart all the linkages, reworked them and put in softer fuel tubing and a different servo that i had laying around. i raced today at thunder-rc in elkhorn wisconsin, and now my throttle just sticks in either full break or full throttle and have no radio on it. idk im lost ont this issue.

this should help you out http://www.teamlosi.com/ProdInfo/Fi...le_Addendum.pdf

also not sure if it was mentioned here on in the 8ight setup thread but if anyone goes to upgrade the clutch to a four shoe, you will need two more clutch pins LOSA9104. my buddy went to make the change to his last night and we realized we needed them.
