right but by running emulsion there will be no bladder and there will only be a oring of sorts. do you want the shocks to be able to breath?

Think about that o-ring for a minute; what do you think it does?

im having a hard time to get my shocks to feel smooth. The springs always run the shock bodies and to be honest my shocks feel like crap lol. My truck is all stock so any suggestions?

Make sure the springs are fully seated on the shock collar adjusters.

The o-ring are at the same place where the rim of the bladders are (originally most racers just cut out the middle of the bladder), so they are at the top of the shock, compressed between the cap and the shock body to seal the shock.

Stock shocks springs rub. springs sets are better. springs fit better to clear threads. also bladder absorbs shock on compression,.. cutting the bladders gets you shocks that feel better and are more forgiving,... smoother makes your car handle the jumps and gets better traction.

Finally got it up and running today - I have been short on time....











Its got the TLR kit, RPM a arms and bumpers, the Losi buggy body as an over tray to keep the electronics clean, and stock body painted (un-professionally)

Kept all of the wires black and put black shrink tube on the other wires, like servo and speed control leads.

Hitec servo, RX8, 4000kv 4pole and yep a Eco lipo battery, from Amain.

That 5000mah pack is only 30c, and lasted nearly 25 min, just having fun driving in the yard.

I love my Losi with the MIP kit. It's the easiest thing to drive now.

Please tell me this is auto-correct talking. If not Casper...you're slipping.

Looks like he might have used velcro or hasnt done the holes yet buy you can use the 8ight buggy body mounts(rear mount is longer than the 810 mounts) as i did and the 8ight body as its longer. Ive heard people use the 810 body but i couldnt get it to fit(to short) so i went all 8ight gear...Works great but havent did temps with it yet when its warm/hot out

but all you need is the 8ight body mount kit(comes with fuel tank stuff too)
and any 8ight body preferably one uncut so you can move it to where you want it and open holes up for ventilation
