The balls are the same that are in the inside of the link of the 1.0 turned upside down. I believe these are the up/down balls for the bump steer . . .

Since you can only buy the 8ight-E 2.0 with the electronics, what is everyone's opinion on that too? Would you go racing with the Losi electronics and expect them to last 6+ months, or would you yank them out and sell as new, and then buy new electronics?
I can share my opinion! I would not run the Losi electronics (Xcelorin) and definitely would not run AE (LRP). I would buy the Losi Nitro race roller for $550 on ePay and pay $75 for the conversion kit and use better electronics. MMM or Hobbywing ESC. Tekin motors are very good but have seen to many RX8 ESCs have problems.

As far as the chassis concerned I see a lot less breakage on the Losi over the AE. I have nothing against AE what-so-ever since I raced both a B4 & T4 last winter BTW. I know people who run electric Mugen, AE, Losi, Caster, and HB. Losi is apparently the most rugged!

Thumbs up

Look hard and you can find a Roler for $ 350- $400 Ducks then the Losi E Conversion is $ 75$-$ 80, I run Tekin and love it. I run the 2050 motor and 4 cell LiPo. 10* alu inclinded spiendles, Lightened outdrived with the Losi HD dif cases, 45t plastic gear 15-16 pinion, get some good tires and have some fun!

i'm picking up a truggy roller than i'm gonna convert over to brushless to go along with my buggy. but this weekend there is a regional pro series race where i can just race one electric. i've been running my buggy, but the revo's and truggy's push you around a bit, and it's a rough track that a truggy handles a bit better on.

so i'm thinking untill all my stuff comes in for the truggy, i'll just swap everything from the buggy over to the truggy. what would i need to look at for gearing? i'm running the losi 2100 with a mm esc, 4s, and on the buggy i've been fairly happy with the 15t/45 combo.

15/45 is good for truggy and buggy.

Do you have to cut vents in the body like you did to keep tthe motor and esc cool? I just did a bull dog body for the e car and I was wanting to know if I need to vent it to keep the electronics cooler?

I am running a thunderpower 5200 50c 4s and it does not fit under the bulldog body without cutting it. The front corner hits and presses up the bulldog body. It fits under the stock losi E body.
