Clean surfaces and HOT soldering irons and it is done in seconds.
Pre "tin" the surfaces then just a touch gets it done.

Default Carbon Chassis

I wanted to let you guys know about our year end blowout on our Carbon chassis for the 8ight. It would be a great addition for your 8ight-E conversions. The chassis is 100 grams lighter than stock regularly $199.95 now $149.95 while supplies last.

glad to see apparently some things have been fixed or figured out b/c the 1 E8 i've seen, which is stock, is really fun to watch (still i hate marshallin 1/8s). yes it was racing on a 10 scale bullring, but on the other side it was enuff to send a E-caster up in flames. keep it up

Ok so I finally got to run this bad boy. Super fun is all I can say.

But now the bad news. My kit only cake with a 16t pinion. Im using a zippy 4s 5000mah pack. I took it to Thunder alley on tues and ran a few packs through it. It kept pulling the tires off the rim (shitty glue job thanks losi) so I took it to ARCraceway yesterday and it was running fine then it just stopped. I pulled it off the track to take a look

Here are the symptoms. When I give it full throttle it sounds like it is just cogging really bad and just sits there. If I pick it up it does the same but sometimes it gets past the cogging sound and then spins fine. I checked the motor temp and it read 201 yikes how the eff is that possible????

So now im confused not sure how to trouble shoot it. Not sure if the ESC is jacked or the motor or the diffs?

Any Help?

Get a hold of Horizion and send your ESC and Motor back.

Shadizzle that sucks!!

One other question. I bought a losi 4s 5000mah pack on my way to the track, but of course my dumbass forgot to check the balance plug. I have a hyperion duo charger and the losi plug will not fit into my balance board. Do I need some type of adapter or what? Do i need to cut it off and set up a hperion plug where can I get these amain?

you will have to search this thread to find out what plug it is. I know it is here somewhere I read it. Once you know what plug it is just go to www.rclipos.com and get the adapter you need.

My first one did almost the same thing. Send it back. The most laborious part of the fix, is soldering the new motor wires. Make sure they send them! Once installed, and updated with the new firmware, you'll be good to go.
