HEFFAE,

Those are the Losi lightweight outdrives. I run those on my Eight.

I put an 8ight-B 2.0 rear center driveshaft in my 8ight-B. Sits 2mm further in the cup since the 2.0 is 2mm longer at the rear. Don't think it will pop out now. You can see it in the first picture.

Just got back from OCRC tonight, saw one Losi 8ight. Now I want one even more! I've never seen one in person before until tonight, and they are ungodly fast! Also saw some familiar buggies at OCRC that have been posted on here as well.

Does anyone know what the pricing will be on the 8ight-E 2.0?

That might have been mine... It works pretty well...now if I could only drive it. I'm going to get a slower motor. Maybe a 1300.

I guess I'm doing OK considering that it's only my 2nd time racing with it. I'll be there Sunday again...introduce yourself. Mine is the green/black one with yellow wheels...if we have time, I'll let you drive it.
