Since no one replied I'm assuming no one is familiar with these tires or Panthers compounds. So what tires do you guys run on hard packed high bite tracks?

We have found that MC Electrons from Pro-Line work the best.

I have run slicks on high bite sticky clay. I have never really found where they work outdoor to be honest. I run Soft or MS rattlers on high bite clay but you don't get great life out of them.

A larger pin tire will be a little squirly at first but get better as the tire wears.

Slicks work with no dust so you have to stay in the groove or it can get loose quite quick. Damp clay I have had them work quite well

All we run - we were grinding down our own tires for a while but like casper said, indoor wet clay. They are hooked, but stay in the groove. Give them a little LW before you run.

You can buy now buy Dirt Webs in 1/8 also, I run them on a very hard packed indoor dirt track that you would almost assume is clay... IRCR.

I just picked up a 3.0 kit super excited to get it. Does anyone have any pictures of using 2 2s lipos ? I need some wiring ideas.

Default Best Neu Motor to use????

Hello, I just got a Losi 8ight-E 3.0 and will be starting to build it soon. I would like to use a Neu Motor in it but I'm not 100% sure which one to use. I'm thinking the 1515 1Y, does anyone else have experience with these motors in this buggy? I will probably start racing with it but that's not all I will be using it for. I want it to be crazy fast but have good pick up as well. Honestly I will probably end up getting one that's good in both areas and then one that will be just super fast as well. Are there any other motors that would be better than the Neu's? I have a discount code that only lasts for the next 48 hours so I need to decide fast lol

May not be the best picture but this is how I run my dual shorties.

You run a jumper from one pack to the other (+ to -) and then run wires from the ESC to plug it in.

The eight 3.0 comes with a neat brace to do this easy with shorties but same thing goes for full packs.

Hey guys, I'll be getting a 8ight e 3.0 in a few weeks and have been looking at setups but I have a quick question. When I see setups saying battery forward, does that mean all the way front in front of the ESC, or just forward in the battery tray? I'm confused because I'm seeing a lot of pictures with the battery in the front and ESC to the rear. How/why is that being switched?

I'm pretty sure that they meant move the battery forward in the tray...

That looks like a version of the stock 3.0 body, minus the rear fin.

Maybe they were trying some stuff out, and didn't like it enough to bring it to production.....
