Can people help with some bodies?

Brand --- Body Name --- Part No. --- Link to a pic

Cheers.
I can't comment on the Losi body as i've never ran that one. I have run the JC Illusion and the Proline Slipstream for the 8E. I like both of them but prefer the Slipstream as it has more room under it for components. Hope this helps.

I think them tracks are bigger than our, we dont have a indoor track. The best lap time I can give is 31 laps in a 15:00 minute race.laps time are around .29 second-. 30 second a lap with electric 1/8. The other u can see it at RC sign ups. Right know in the ILLIONS SECTION. I hope that there's a class there for me? ? I have been on the guys ass about not offering a electric 1/8 class....... said he has to have 15-20 cars show up for us to race.

That is pretty weak. Most places around here will run a separate class with 4-5 cars.

OCRC is the largest track. It is 130X60. WCRC is only 55X80 and Hot Rod is only 100X45.

We do have Revelation Raceway which is 200X150 but I have not run my eight-e out there yet. I ran my gas car out there a few times but not my electric yet. It is not on my series schedule this year either.

The three tracks I have listed will have lap times in the 18-25 range depending on the track and the current layout.

Two of the tracks are about the same lap times so I don't feel to bad about our track size. The is a video of us at the bone yard track. Its in the its called THE TRACK AT MAYFIELD KY section u can see the smaller track and video. CheCk it out. Let know what u think??

My friend had the Losi conversion on his 8ight and it fit fine. You may not be able to run the motor brace on the chassis, but from what I've read on here most people don't anyway because of binding.

i running 4s 5000 30c batteries my question is i'm thinking of getting 5800mah batteries. the 5000 pack weighs 526 grams and the 5800 pack weighs 568. will the weight difference make a big difference in the bal of the buggy. my biggest concern is when its in the air.

I would not be too concerned. The original losi 4s battery was 615g. The car is plenty heavy on it's own to not have things like that effect it much, if at all.

Default Flex Coupler

Has anyone tried this new product? My front center CVD seems to wear prematurely. I'm hoping this will help with that problem.

I run a 2650 kv monster motor and speed control. I get 17. Minutes on a 5200 mah 4s. And I get 15. Minutes on 3s lipo 5800mah. I am still working on it, I need a smaller motor like a 1800 kv. From monster would proble get me a few more minutes.

The wear on the front dog bone is more because of the angle it meets the cup then the tork being pushed threw it. It rubs the cup as much as say the rear dog bone at full droop but the front dog bone stays at that angle all the time and the other does not. If you were killing rears then I would say sure, that would be awsome for helping it live longer. Might even be worth trying to see how it makes the car feel but to fix that problem, probly not.

Default 8ight-T 2.0 body

I'd like to put the Punisher 2.0 body on a 1.0 chassis.

Now, if I get the 2.0 rear shock tower and replace the 1.0, and cut the length to fit it, and use the 2.0 rear body mounts, will this work?
