What is a stock center spur on the 8ight-E 2.0? 46? I'm on 6S/1400kv and trying to see what pinion/gearing would work well for a medium sized track.

Also, are the setups on the losi page pretty dialed, or are they old news?

Thanks!!

45 is what comes with the conversion. Before Tekins new 208 software came out I was running a 16T at Asylum. When we were just there I had a 13T and v208 on TP2. Hope that helps.

Glad you piped up. I'm going to try and make Reo this weekend.

When I said medium sized track, I was actually refering to Scale Hobbies, not Asylum. Asylum is pretty big to me and would need some tall gearing for that looooong straight . If I make it out to Reo, I'd love some help cuz I have no idea what v208 and TP2 means. I'm on 6S, Tekin 1400kv, and MMP.

Btw, I'm not sure I met you, maybe i did. Met lots of people this last weekend. Thanks!!

I just picked up a 8ight-E 2.0. I need to know a good base setup for it. Diffs, shocks, ride height with 4s lipo. Also, what's a good motor to run for it with the MMM ESC? I was think Tekin 1900kv.

Here is a great starting setup.

That motor will work well.

HI, Im still in the middle of converting my Losi 8 2.0 and i purchased the motor mount from Rcmonster.

now the cobnversion kit comes with that part that blocks the hols on the chassis but the rcm mount comes with a spacer(whatever you call it) that i attach the columns that hold the diff. Which should i use? both? just one?

the part is shown in this pic.

It is huge. It was designed for the original losi battery which was 1.9X1.8X6.3

Most batteries these days are only 5.5 inches long.

Ok well I'm not familiar with SRI so I'm not exactly sure what to tell you. Do this tho. Start with a 14 or 15 and check temps and also compare the efficiency of ea one. There is a sweet spot w these motors. I won't be of much help to you w the mmp cuz I am not familiar w it. Also the 208 and TP2 was
in reference to Tekin RX8 software so it won't do you any good. Although I understand that CC has similar timing advance software?
Anyway, I'll be at Reo and will help you all that I can. I'm not sure if we met either btw!
Hope to see you Saturday.

It is just a Nitro body without the cutouts. You can convert any 8-T with the losi electric conversion kit. With all that being said I don't know if they plan on making it a kit?

Was I the only person disappointed by the 8ight-Te body announcement. It's litterally a T body without cutouts. The scallop behind the big flat area in the bed is still offset to one side where a nitro engine would be and they didn't cut a hole in the windshield. If anything it's now easier to produce, but it's 10 bucks more than a Proline bulldog...
