I have an 8ight-e and 8ight-e/T both are 1.0's, what would be the best parts to start with(or most needed) to make it closer to a 2.0?

Thanks..

For the 8ight T don't bother trying to upgrade. It would cost a lot more than just buying a new 8T 2.0.

For the 8ight B the biggest performance change is the 2mm longer flex tune chassis. To run this you will also need the 2.0 center rear drive shaft. Other than that running a current 2.0 suspension set up will get you very close to a 2.0 in performance. If you want to change more stuff the shock towers would be next.

The other changes made to the 2.0 that would carry over to an electric conversion were 4mm (thinner) turnbuckles and the steering rack and servo saver. Some have had problems with the 4mm turnbuckles not holding tune and a lot of guys have switched back to the 1.0 steering system.

Are you using the brace under the motor?

No motor brace, I don't use it on either of my buggys. The problem started when I replaced my motor and esc with the mamba monster/2650kv motor. On my hyper 9e I run the stock steel spur gear without any issues at all (same setup).

Just to be on the safe side is there any plastic cover to put on the spur-pinion to prevent debris to get in between ?

Thanks
