Sorry To here that they did not work for you. I have been running the same kyosho 46T in my 8ight all winter.
You do need to set the mesh a bit tighter with the plastic ones. Just an FYI

Guys I am in the process of getting some parts for my Eight-e. I run a Futaba radio, so I am looking at a new steering servo. It's between the 9350(.12,[email protected]) and the 9351(.13,[email protected]). Which do you think will be better? Thanks guys......

I use this one and really like it--perhaps a little too pricey.

9351's have a nylon gear that are Uber prone to stripping.....If Anything go with a Brushless 351...they have eliminated that gear and they consume just that much less power.

Rich, you gonna let me take a look at your buggy? we have the same setup and mine doesn't rub. I shimmed the diff forward because the spur was a bit close to the motor mount. I also took some plastic off as seen in the pic. Also, make sure your pinion isnt mounted too close to the motor mount. when the motor shaft moves back and forth, the pinion may be hitting the motor mount. mine did the first time. now my pinion sits just a bit toward the front vs the spur. the mesh is still fine

Edumakated, you using the losi conversion kit with the 8t? did your Neu motor bolt up to the losi motor mount ok? any mods?

I picked up my Losi conversion kit from Tilted R/C yesterday for $59.99! I can't want to get it done. I'm still researching which NEU motor would be best for me, I'll be running the MMM V3.

The Neu motors fit fine on the losi mount. The only issue is that if you use a neu with fins, you can't use the rear motor brace (or you need to dremmel it down a bit) and you will have to dremmel off one of the plastic nibs on the mud guard. The fins are too big for the rear motor support and hit the plastic nib for the mud guard. Otherwise, it works perfectly.

I really like the losi motor mount. Very easy to change pinions without having to remove the whole center diff. nice design.

Which motor will have the best run time. The losi 1700 or 1300kv with 4s 5000 On a medium high bite clay track which has a good flow with a couple slow sections.

thanks. I have a losi 2.0 buggy converted and am thinking of getting a NEU 1512 3D and a 5S pack. do you think the new losi heat sink would bolt on a Neu smooth can?

The losi heatsinks works perfectly on a Neu smooth can. I have one on a 1512 2.5d.

does Neu make a 1512 3D smooth can? are the heat sinks of the finned 3D good enough?

All neu motors come in a choice of smooth or finned. The finned cans run noticeably cooler than the smooth cans imho. The fins on the finned can work fine. The losi heat sink is a good option though on the smooth neus.
