Thanks man! Decals were made in house (except the 8IGHT ones.)

As promised, here's a few more pics at a much better resolution!

This 8IGHT along with the 8IGHT-T (I'm painting that one today) are Tekin R&D vehicles and I'm not allowed to post pics with the body off at this time.

Lets see how you did the conversion. I am curious on what people used.

Either Tekin or Castle needs to hurry up with an esc. I sold my 125b/9xl combo anticipating a release from a U.S. company, but nothing yet.

Finished up the Truggy today, still need to make a few more stickers so they match exactly

The other two shots are of two different motor mounts, one by rcproductdesigns and the other by rcmonster. Both are great kits guys, good work!

Can't wait to shred the track with these babies!

Hey, Jim, Ty, I got an 8th here which isn't getting used, and have been thinking a little about a Lipo/brushless conversion. One of you guys pm me your MSN or AIM adress and talk!!!

Ty, any chance of Tekin coming out with a monster BL motor to use in elec. 8th scales? Neu's are great but FAR to hard to get, with the current shortages.

What they did was use the battery box from the RC Product Designs EL8 Kit and the a motor mount from RC Monster in the 8ight.
And the motor mount and the top plate ( mounted up side down) from the RC product Designs EL8 kit and an unknown manufacturer battery box in the
8ight T.

I am talking with neu now about increasing availability. I will be a dealer soon and carrying as many as I can.

The "unknown" battery box manufacturer is me. They used Dan's motor mount with my battery box and My motor mount with Dan's battery box.


Good luck increasing availability on the Neu motors - I have them on constant order, but they arrive in small quantities.
