Quick question for the guys running the Tekin RX8... I walked out of the hobby shop today not paying attention with 14ga. wire for my ESC. Can I run this or should I get 12ga.?

Thanks,
Greg

Assuming it is high quality wire it will be just fine. 12ga IMO is a little over kill most of the time and the wires on the SCTE are not all that long so resistance is pretty low.

I have gone there and practiced a couple times last fall but its a good hour drive one way. I have been mainly playing at Firridge Raceway in Scappoose. Its about a 10min drive and we all just have a blast.

Thanks for the reply
I have this tool too and used it 1x the first day I got it, now it's just taking up space in my tool box

Thanks.
You can use pretty much anything with a 12mm hex. I prefer to use slash rear offset wheels, they aren't as wide as the slash fronts.

make sure they are clean..

1)pop out the inserts in the diff cups (replace if you have a lot of wobble in your outdrives)
2)apply black grease to the edge that will fit into the edge of the plastic diff cup
3)put back together (squish it tight) wipe off any excess grease that comes out (if you over did it)
4)snag outdrive, use small amount of black grease to fill the groove (there is no ring seal like on the 8ights, but I use this on method on the 8ights as well)
5)install the outdrive (if doing with an 8ight bearing first ;P)
6)if using new seals (good idea) get damp with some used shock oil or similar
7)install, repeat for other side.
8)fill diff fluid, pretty full push down top gear and make sure the fluid is not going to over flow.
9)get gasket, use some used shock oil (even diff fluid) to coat or 'wet down' the gasket (don't need to soak) both sides
10)install remaining parts take screws down in a nice even fashion as they snug up go back and forth (one side to the other) sungging them down to final tightness (ensures a good smooth fit w/ gasket).

Seal should last until next service.

**As larlev notes below (great point) if you have an uneven surface, sand it a touch (doesn't take much) this would be a 1x thing for a new housing, that said I've yet to sand any of them.

Most important thing is to sand the face of the housing flush. Also do not over tighten the gasket.

yep un-covered so weather permitting of course. Its ran by a guy named Darrell Day he opened last summer. If you ever go to Tammie's or HobbyTown I think he has flyers up.

Also go to:
http://www.portlandrc.com/forum/index.php?topic=236.0 a little forum write up I did on it. (I think you have to register, but its free)

and lastly look up Darrell Day on Facebook. He will usually post up how the track is looking for that day, He also has pics and video's of the track.

I guess I need to talk to him about an official website lol

So looks like
TLR6080 - Hinge pins
TLR5063 - fr shock shafts
TLR5064 - R shock shafts
