Talking TeKno Rc8 Rx8 1900kv

Just did some track testing with my new build and i must say it's insane.
TeKno Rc8, Rx8 1900kv, 2s1p reedy 5000's with clutch and manual brakes. this setup works amazing on the small indoor tracks around here in olympia.
RAW low end power check it out.

Very nice conversion! The RC8 lends itself well and the Techno stuff is great too. Hope you enjoy!

Thumbs up

Looks very similar to mine. Can you post or PM your setups? I haven't run mine yet, still waiting on the zippys to come in.

Diff oil / Shock oil / gearing / etc

Thanks!

Haha,
my buddy built a kyosho 777 custom machined E-Conversion about 6 months ago, this car was my insperation. Now after 2 weekends of practice with him he ordered a RC8e full team & a tekin setup! Lol! The way I'm driving really got him thinking and spending money! I think the tekno setup will still make him wonder! To me his 777 setup ripped the same if not better! I'm lovin the tekno chassis so far so good! Late

We normally hit 4 seasons Friday at 4:00 say hi if you see my car!
My other buddy just bought a novarossi d8! Should be lots of fun!

I'm running 7000k front 10000k center 5000k rear
bronze springs front/rear 80weight front/rear
r16 clutch bell composite 2 shoe for now stock spur!

The Rear shocks still seem a little weak so I ordered big bores Monday!
Bronze springs again. I don't even know what pistons are in the shocks but
80weight still seems a little soft for a 8.5 pound setup!
