Can't wait to hear how it does. Do you think the shield will raise your temps?

If i had to guess, then yes, i think it will raise the temp of my ESC by a few degrees.

Will report back tomorrow after the races.

Would these work on my Ten SCTE?

That said they are really a waste of money imo, I had a set, tried a set and run stock shocks. I even had the 8ight shocks on my 810 and recently swapped back and I'm using stock shocks with the m2c pistons and 27.5 oils and the buggy feels 100x better. To get this out of the way I race on a pretty huge 1/8 scale track with motoxross style jumps... 8ight shocks add weight and do not reduce run times or improve jumping vs the stock shocks setup correctly. Now if you do have some control issues and are looking to increase durability.. I can honestly say it maybe a fair mod. That set doesn't come with springs.. I'd get some silvers all around, maybe even want reds. Start with 40wt front 30wt rear.

PS the 8ight shocks are longer than the stock shocks and you WILL need to use the droop grubs on the a-arm and if you don't have an upgraded chassis I would also order a set of 8ight droop pads and use them on the stock chassis to avoid the grubs just digging into the chassis and making it very hard to set droop height.

The 8ight reds are as light of a spring as they have, the slivers are next in line, then green then black being the stiffest.

I wouldn't recommend black rears... even on the much much heavier 8ight-e nobody runs that stiff of a spring. Typical 8ight setups are silver or green, but most are green on the rear. Some have moved again with the much heavier 8ight to a black front spring, but still most stick with a silver to green front spring as well. Just some thoughts..

I agree....blacks do not work on our trucks. Run red/red, red/silver, or silver/green(indoor only)

one of the reasons I suggested silver in the back is because. I tested off a jump and it helps with kicking the ass end right to keep the nose from diving. sounds backwards. but with the stiffer spring the back end helps the line, it didn't kick as much as a soft spring. try some different springs to suite your driving skills and track

If so I think the are great tires for hard packed dirt with a loamy/dusty top , wet or dry .

I would compare them too the Losi Eclipse tires but a little better side bite .

Regular buggy Crimefighters are awesome as well when the track starts getting chewed up .

no, i meant the crime fighters as that is what came on my mugen truggy yesterday. Good to know they're decent tires and from what i hear they should work great for my local track.

I actually used some permatex high-tack gasket sealant on the inserts and it works fantastic. Have had absutely no leakage so far. Just be sure to wear gloves when applying this stuff as it is very sticky and hard to get off your fingers unless you have some paint thinner lying around.
