I noticed that if I push my motor up or down, it will make some creaking noises. I've checked that all the chassis screws holding the motor mount are tight, but it still seems like the entire assembly has slight movement. I believe that's where the noise is coming from. Has anyone else seen this?

mine has flex also, so i put longer screw in the center diff and use blue lok-tight on the motor plate, it helps alittle bit.

Hello everyone, this is my fist time posting on this thread but Ive been following it for a little while. Ive messaged danger in the past and e has always helped me so thank you Danger! I have a few questions that maybe you guys can help me with.

1. The rear end of my buggy seems pretty squirrely even under light throttle blips. I have already moved the rear camber link to the outermost position thus lengthening it....I also moved my rear hub one spacer forward. It did settle down a lot but I see other 8's hook up much better. I run the TEKIN RX8 with the 1900KV motor with the current limiter at 50%. Im running the right tires for the surface ad aligned the car properly. Any other tips or things Im missing to get the power to the ground when coming on power?

2. Im going to start experimenting with the diff oils. Anyone know what oil weights come in the diffs stock?

3. Same question as above but for the shocks? Anyone know what pistons come front and rear along with stock shock oil weights?

I have tried searching and reading before asking but at this point....I need little guidance.

Thanks in advance

Yes it was a brand new race roller. Still all stock as far as diffs and shocks go including springs.

I was thinking about going even softer in the rear in regards to spring but Im worried I may have a hard time maintaining my desired ride height with anything softer.

Anyone know the stock diff oil weights?

Thanks Racer....

Great, thank you. Those are the numbers I have my ride height set to right now..... The car is very compliant over jumps and jumps very flat with the stock setup.....just looking for a little more on power grip.

Do you think altering the rear toe or antisquat would be beneficial. Right now Im at 3 and 3 on both. I have one that will give me .5 more toe in....and some with less antisquat.

Thanks again

i would try long wheel base to see if that helps and put the rear camber link back in the b hole in the hub, that might help??

any 2.0 body will fit the 1.0 and the 2.0! the 1.0 only fits the 1.0 car.
