Ryan, which servo arm do you prefer? The LOSA9903x or the TLR155x range?

Can you tell me how much timing and rpm range in the esc?

If you are running the T8, and not the T8i, you can just leave the 10 timing in with the stock range. I certainly wouldn't add to it. I run a 16/43 and run the current limiter between 70-80.

Hey guys,

Still trying to figure out a shock package for the car. Car is a little on the heavy side running a Promatch 7200mah 4s that weighs 600oz with a T8 2050 and RX8 gen2. I would somehow like to upscale my SCTE 2.0 shock package into the 3.0e. I"m confused on if the stock set up oil and pistons will be to light. I would try Dakota"s setup but not sure what pistons would be equal to the ones he used or would his setup be to soft for the weight of my car.

Hey guys.

About to do a amain order and want to get it right, im in aus. so want to grab everything in on go because of high shipping cost.

Racing tracks will be a indoor Asphalt surface and outdoor dirty surface.


Some questions:

1)Im leaning towards tekin esc motor combo. What speed motor do you recommend? 2050kv?
1a) What pinion should I buy if needed if it doesnt come with the losi kit.

2) What vehicle batteries do you recommend? Never ran a 1/8 electric so no idea on battery sizes runtime etc.

3) Any other parts i should order for the build? e.g im guessing there be enough oil to run a all around 5k-5k-5k in the diffs if thats a common standard setup?

Thanks in advance.

I'm running a trinity 1950 motor. 2050kv will be just fine.
I think the kit comes with 14/15 pinions. If I remember correctly I'd stick with those. I use the 15 for indoor and outdoor. I usually change the spur between 43 for more top or 45 for more torque
I use 5000+mah 50c+ batteries for solid ten minute runtimes. Orion, trinity, trakpower, smc are all awesome batteries. Try one of those out for the most consistant power. From my experience anyway.
Only parts I've ordered were the extra spring colors, arms, shock shaft, and hinge pins. I started with 5/7/3 diffs. Now I'm 5/7/5. I'm also running 30/30 tlr oil

Hey Jason, what piston and springs are you running?

I also heard of guys drilling their arms out to free up the car but wasn't for sure what size drill bit to use.

I'm running the kit pistons, green front and silver rear. Honestly reaming out the arms is pointless. Run the car through like 3 batteries. It will loosin up.

My setup works inside and outside. All I change is tires and droop. This car is so easy. I love it
