Hey guys I picked up an eight-T and I threw my E eletric in it. It is all the same gearing but seems way slower. What is the gear ratios of the buggy and truggy? I am running the same spur/pinion (13/45) combo as before. Thanks............

The diffs are 10/43 in the truggy, and 13/43 in the buggy.

Nice pics Jim. Always nice to have matching bodies for two separate rides.

I am a new owner of a 8ight-E 2.0 and I'm having some troubles with keeping the servo centred.

When I go over a jump and land, sometimes the servo arm gets shifted clockwise or counter-clockwise on the steel servo output gear. This causes me to have to recenter the servo arm on the metal output gear again.

I am using an XP DS1015 servo.

The servo arm has a plastic gear that fits on the servo's metal gear. Any ideas? Obviously I'm doing something wrong here because the servo arm shouldn't slip.

you need a Al servo horn. Something like this.

but make sure you get the right one for your servo

Agreed on the servo horn. I use the Losi alluminum one and it works great.

The material used for the servo horn is very soft and will strip with very litttle force. The servo saver is very stiff too and that doesnt help eather.

Are titanium hinge pins and turnbuckets(lunsford) a benefit to the 8ight E? I m thinking of picking some up but I dont want them to bend on me if that is the case.

They are a good replacement because if you break it or bend it, they will replace it.

But I have yet to bend a factory hinge pin on an 1/8 scale rig. I have an 8E, LST2, and just sold my 8T and I never bent a hingle pin on any of them.

The fit is really good. You shouldn't need much besides the conversion. Some solder and an iron...
