Does anybody know the exact offset of the inner hole on the Losi aluminum servo arm measured from the center of the servo gear to the center of the screw?

Also, since the hole seems to be tapered, what is the correct direction for the shock pistons, number facing the shaft (down) or the cap (up)?

1) Anyone got suggestions for some Drift tyres for 12mm hexes? (so no need to wrap tyres in tape)? Could be a bit of fun when I can't get to the track.

2) What is the difference between the 8ight and the 810 bodies? Which one fits the SCTE best?

Thanks!

(Probably makes a change from the great chassis debate...)
Dunno on tires other than use PVC pipe around a set of junk tires and glue it to tire. As for bodies...I had both and the 810 is quite short but the 8ight is much better length. As for width I didn't like either but I still run the side guards without nerf bars but ended up using the JCONCEPTS 8ight illusions body for an overtray but not done yet as I've been busy the last few weeks

Overtray?

Why don't you use an outerwear like below?


Lighter, more efficient for dirt and still let the electronic breeze, no?

I'm not really fond of outerwears or any overtray execpt in a basher aspect. Even though the outerwears is supposed to "breathe" , i can see my motor temps easily jumping up 20 from my regular 175. I'm not worried about a little dirt getting in my chassis.

If you've ever had to run in wet loamy dirt you would be worried , I was at a race one time that had a lot of loose dirt and after one heat I must have had 1-2 pounds of wet fluffy dirt covering the chassis .

Interesting as I have nothing yet but am looking for a good way to protect from dirt...

When you say +20, I assume its when you compare with nothing, not when you compare with a 810 body as overtray, right?

People read it from Australia to US, including France and England in the middle, so that's not surprising.

Default Few questions

I'm thinking of buying a scte, but have a few questions. I will be racing indoor and outdoor. Just sold my sc10 4x4 and looking for something that drives more like a 1/8 buggy. I will be installing a Hobbywing esc and Tekin sc4x 4.5 motor.
1. Are the screws metric or standard and what size drivers are needed?
2. What additional parts are needed to get started with that may break?
3. What may lipo is recommended?
4. any of recommendations

Thanks

I'm not the best to answer (got mine since one week only), but one thing I'm sure : screws are not metric, these are imperial, the standard 4 sizes from 0.05.

I actually think they use both and Losi has been criticized for such.

Really??

I'm so sorry for my bad advise if that's the case, I haven't disassemble the thing yet but I did notice in the manual that they were talking about imperial size hex drivers...

Ya, I don't really care for them as my hobby shop has a few and for 40 bux they can keep it...I'd try panty hose before paying $40 for that. It's mess, it shouldn't be that expensive...a body doesn't cost that much!!!

Does the JConcepts 8ight illusions body work good for an overtray? Any chance for a photo?
Thanks
