No tubes lol. No binding but i did back off my endpoints after the 3rd one snapped. I know its a somewhat common issue if you search this thread. One good local racer has 7 lefts in his box and another has 4 in his...

Just asking if anyone know of a mod or fix?

I have 4 lefts
And the new alum spindles are on my car!
They are nice but they should be for the price.

My epa are correct and each time I've broke a right spindle was landing a jump. Not a bad hard out of shape landing. Smooth landing and snap. I've checked for binds thru the travel and idk why?
Did this happen with the stock spindle carriers ?
I've used the truggy ones since I built the car.
Had the 2.0 nitro car and I never broke one?

Two full race seasons on my 3.0 and one on my 3.0E and I have never broken a spindle. Isn't this hobby funny like that?

This past weekend I went to a track that had a double almost right in front of the stand which is a sea can. I could see the bottom of my car (3.0 RTR) in the air (like 10-13 ft)and only broke the whole weekend when I forgot to threadlock my motor screw.

Did you hit something ?

I was running 40 in the front and 30 rear. Was in the air 10-12ft. It's still gonna slap hard. Diff ? I haven't changed in a while. I think its 6000 frt 3000 mid and 4000 rear. I think I'm wrong though. Battery forward BTW

I run 42.5/37.5 in shocks (green springs F+R) and 5000/7000/2000 in diffs on this track:



And it feels just perfect.

I run my 8ight mostly on indoor tracks. I run the Tekin T8i motor and run dual shorty Venom 4500mah 100C packs.

If you run on outdoor larger traditional 8th scale size tracks I would go with a More standard size motor and a full size 4S pack.

Venom makes a full line of 4S batteries. up to 6300mah 70C which is tons of power.

Sorry, but have had nothing but problems with Venom (I can see you are sponsored by them).
