I just bought a used 8ight 2.0e and want to upgrade it to the adjustable rear hinge pin brace.
Could anybody please explain what the difference between LOSA1755, LOSA1758 and LOSA1759 is?
Thank you in advance!

LOSA1755: Standard adjustable rear hing brace

LOSA1758: European version black anno (not available in the U.S.)

LOSA1759: "Low Roll Center" (LRC) version is similar to the stock stuff but adjustable. I recommend using this version and apparently so do our local Losi pros.

Hey guys, I ran a bunch of searches and didn't see the answer so I guess I'll just ask. Did anyone else have an issue with the motor hitting on the motor mount on the 8ight e conversion? I bolt my tekin 2650 or my caste to the slider portion and the slider can't slide down as the motor hits the actual motor mount as it tries to slide down. Could I have just gotten a flaw or is it necassary to add shims between the motor and the slider?

I'm not using the rear support. I'm talking just the motor mount. With the tekin or castle motor screwed tight to the slider, I can't slide the slider on the moore mount. I plan on using the tekin. I will have to put washers between the motor and the slider mount to make it fit without hitting right now. Or shave some of the motor mount off

Do I need a 3/8 nut driver to build the kit? Looked at the manual and did not find a nut with that size.

Most do not use this rear motor mount as it binds. Detrimental to plastic spurs.

Uhm. The nut on the back of the shock mounts is 3/8" I believe (maybe 11/32"?). No need for a 3/8" driver for the kit though. I just have a small box wrench if I ever need to replace upper shock mounts . . .

The manual shows a 11/32" nut in that place.
