I am getting ready to build my RC8Te and I am placing my order for a few last second addons....most from spending too much time in this thread. Anyways I am looking for a 48t spur and I can't seem to find one. I run the RR 48t wide in my losi 8T, but it seems that spur is only for the losi 8. So anyone know of a place to look for a 48t or why the RR one is for the 8 only. Does it have to do with chassis clearence?? Thanks ahead of time for any help...

Anyone looking to upgrade the plastic shocks on your RC8TE, I've just posted a new set of 16mm big bores in the for sale section.

What batteries do you guys run in your 8te? I am looking for some suggestions. I just built a new one but I am finding that the battery holder is to short for most packs. I am looking for something with enough juice to run a 20 to 30 minute main and it has to be 4s preferably hard case. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

i have 4s 5800 zippys (softcase) and 4s 5000 turnigys (softcase) that are a little snug but fit. you just need to dremel the tray out a little bit for the wires to exit clean. they have 8awg wire on 'em so be prepared to solder end of with a pretty big iron.

You need to find Lipo's that are (L=141mm x W=48.5mm x H=51.7mm) I found that the Max-Amp & Thunder Power Lipo both are hard case fit like a glove with out having to do any cutting of the batt tray. I run the Max-Amp 4s 6500 hard case it fits perfect and it handles the power draw great and I can run a 25-30 min main with no problem..But this is just my 2 cents..

Assembling my RC8Te....does anyone have trouble putting in the wheel hex pin for the rear? Seems once I put in the plastic bearing shield and slide the axle through the hub, I can't get the pin in after attaching the wheel hex. Part fitment issue? Or just run without the plastic ring?

i had no problem that i recall with mine. are you possibly getting hung up on one of your bearings sliding the axle through ? make sure your bearings are in all the way and straight.

Dan,

I assume you are talking about step 20 in the install manual. I didn't have a problem here. Make sure that the bearings are all seated evenly. Everything should line up.

Thanks guys, turns out I had the rubber boot from the outside of the axle, instead of within the groove. It allowed it to be just 1mm off for the axle pin. Doh.

Default Converting SC8e

What will I need to convert SC8e to RC8Te? Can I just put the RC8Te body, wheels and tires on the SC8e?

Think you need to change at least the arms, CVD's, and upper/steering links.

A pair of the following fit the associated battery box perfectly with the stock padding on the ends of the box but no padding on the sides. You will not get 30 minutes out of them though. Probably not even 20 minutes in a race. Typically when running 4s the 15 minute mark is all you can shoot for.
