As a spare parts car, or are you going to have two complete cars?

I like mine so much, I just can't see going back to 1/10 scale. I'm debating whether or not to sell my RC10B4. I have a bunch of very new parts (batteries, MMP with only 4 or 5 packs through it, lots of spares, etc), though, and I imagine I'll lose a ton.

On the other hand, I can see sticking with 1/8 scale for a very long time.

Not really. The RC8Be is a pretty tough buggy! the only recomendation i would make is change the plastic wing supports to the blue aluminum ones found on the RC8B and make sure you threadlock them. also be sure to threadlock the 2 screws that hold the steering hubs on.

A good upgrade is the 1.1 Tapered shock pistons either the 10 hole or 8 hole with 35 shock oil all the way around. for rough tracks i would keep 35 in the front and drop the rear to 30wt.

This is what you're looking for when you buy.

These are edge to edge. I would stay just under these numbers if you want it to fit right. Adding the wires on the end uses up some of that space. I ordered the scroll up and see the pack I ordered. That fits in snug. I will measure that pack and post pics, give me a minute.

And this pack just fits with the wires. I have to squeeze the wires in on the end.
