Thank you sir, The RC8 handles very well with the RC-Monster chassis and works great. The Castle Creations Mamba Monster Max / 2650 Kv system has enough power to make the buggy ride a wheely.

Is the Mamba 2650Kv motor better suited towards 1/8th buggies than the 2200Kv Which develops more power?

I have it and its great for me. Question, I never understood, how does a lower KV motor develop more power than a higher KV motor?? I would think the 2650 was more powerful than the 2200, but I know its not.

2200 is more torque, 2650 is more RPM

It eats up badlands on asphalt. Use these instead. Handle high power, better grip, and don't wear down nearly as fast.

Will a RC8 body fit/work on an RC8E?? Didnt know if they were the same or not. I know some vent holes are designed into the E body just didnt know if everythign else is the same or not? I have some pretty nice custom nitro bodies that havent been cut out and want to know if they will work

thanks
