Has anyone installed the avid 1/8 scale wing buttons? Is it as simple as cutting the wing mount posts flush with the wing and drilling holes in the posts for the provided screws in the avid kit?
I run them on my both my buggy and truggy. The process is just as you described.

Yes, they fit perfectly.

I run them on both of my E 3.0's.

The 2.0 front and rear skidplates fits also, by the way.

Hey, has anyone fitted 46T spur gear on losi 8ight-e 3.0?
I had a race this weekend and broke 2 plastic spur gears, from previous losi I have left one 46T spur gear, and seems it's too big, I remember it fitted ok on TLR 3.0 converted.

That was the idea, but question is - is it safe for divetrain, and if somebody is already racing such setup.
