Get the Titanium turnbuckles and a new set of ends (Lunsford or Losi 8ight 2.0). The stock steel ones will lose their settings every time you bump something.

I race hard man.. no issues w/ a-arms or parts to date, it has been a tank iMO. I also run the rear stock plastic hubs w/o issues (knock on wood). I think in the cold some of these parts are more brittle and you see some breakage but in the warm weather, they are pretty durable.

The diff's are the only weakness.. No point in going on about his issue as it doesn't help at this point. A release of HD diff's and HD parts to buy on your own would make most happy, it's just the time frame that most are upset with at this point. Being good hobbyists many have figured out ways around this issue to keep racing for the time being

Sorry I must have misseed or misinterpreted the question, but yes do exactly as you described. I used some thread lock on the screws as well.

You didn't misnterpret, I did. They screw in from the top so that the button head is resting under the arm, right? Not familiar with the 8ight platform really.

oh wait...the 8ight screws go in from the top so that the grubs hiot THEM and not the chassis right?

Just fill out the form on Losi.com or HH.com

HaHa...I'll pay you a little extra if you were to walk back again when my order is being pulled.

I think it's when there's no compression on the suspension, AKA while you're in the air.

You put the screws in on top of the chassis so the droop/set screws in the arm hit the "head" of the droop pads. The droop pads are steel so they don't dent or wear like the alum chassis.

Full droop means the arms area allowed to fully extend when the tires are off the ground. The set screws in the arms are not allowed to touch the chasssis. This gives the shock the most amount of down travel.

Will having that much droop on these trucks promote traction roll or will it make much difference from running say 3/4 droop to full droop?
