I have owned and driven quite a few different e buggies and I have found the fastest lap per lap and easiest to drive cars have had a weight bias of 45~50% front 50~50% rear. The best two car I have driven have been a converted HB D812, and the Losi E 3.0. Interestingly, they have near identical weight distribution....

Lol damn I hate chasing that stuff, but who knows, may knock off another second or two per lap like that. I would like to hear some reviews about this configuration.

Yes they did test it and yes the kit configuration was determined to be the best setup with the battery and its locations where they are. Everyone has there own preferences and tries new things though.

I was looking at the picture and in my preseason rebuilds right now.it wouldn't be hard to move it forward.I was thinking it is done instead of using the brass weight.

Casper, whatīs about the clutch system? Can you tell something about it? It is mentioned in the manual, that there sometime something could be...

We have ran against some of the 3.0's that swapped the the tray around and I didn't see any advantage except maybe the way it feels to the driver. We don't run brass weight either. Tried it and took it out. Tyler said it made car too heavy for the way he likes to drive.

These are listed as option parts on the TLR site:

http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Rel...s&SubCategory=

Are these not just "normal" gear box sets or? Why listed under "option parts"?

For those who have had both the 3.0 nitro/electric conversion and the 3.0e how do they compare? I currently have a 3.0 nitro/electric conversion and am on the fence about buying the 3.0e.

I have both and they are not the same. The nitro conversion is a better drive. The E-3.0 is very ridged and does not seem to handle the rough stuff as well.

I am all most tempted to get a nitro chassis and conversion for mine.

Very strange

Could it not be, that the different configurations just suits different drivers? Just like changing other setup options?

Can't believe that TLR released a dedicated E buggy, that in general handles worse than a converted.

Maybe it suits you better and some other, but I go to believe that the E 3.0 overall is a better design.

Some of you guys are reading into this far too much. Read through the whole thread and you will see that when the dedicated E buggy came out most preferred it over than the nitro converted version. There us nothing wrong with the buggy in its current stock configuration. Didn't Phend win the ROAR 2013 Nationals with it........

the E is definitely better for me, I can't see what the old nitro conversion did that the new E can't do better...
