How do you remove the pins for the outter hubs that hold the axle nuts on? Mine are real snug and I cant push them out.

Did you loosen the grub screw inside the axle?

The set screw is located in the end of the axle/CVD.

Has anyone come to a consensus as to what suspension setup works best for the 8ight-E 2.0 with heavy 4s 5000-5600mah lipos? After much searching of this thread I haven't seen a setup mentioned too many times or one that seemed to have been accepted by several people.

I think you might find it difficult to find a generally accepted set up for any condition. I think a lot of guys really like starting with the latest Drake setup for standard diffs and tune from there. I run the Drake setup with a few changes and really liked the car with a heavier battery after adjusting for ride height. I run a 4-cell but needed to run my truggy 5-cell in buggy practice one day and was surprised--perhaps pleased. I think the car might have handled better!

I am no expert with setups but have started to learn that it all really depends on your driving style and track conditions--nothing you have not heard before. I wish there were a more concrete answer but do not think one exists. My suggestion would be to go after the Drake setup and this might mean spending some $krilla on the inclined spindles & hubs along with adjustable hinge pin braces.

How is racing in Tampa, btw? I grew up there but never raced 8th scale--I heard there was a track at Lake Park.
