Well can somebody make a actual buggy body for the race buggy? I don't understand the goofy looking truck body thing.

In R/C car racing development things are always susceptible to improvements. I feel when it comes to racing bodies they have come leaps and bounds as far as performance. One of the leaders in this is Losi. The forward cab design is considered an improvement to me and others because it creates downward force on the front of the vehicle that improves steering at higher speeds. The 8ight 3.0 E buggy is a serious race car with a lot of detail for "performance" put into the the design. This includes the body design.

If you are after a body just for looks (which is an appearance preference) there have been options out there that dramatically change looks of cars. I do not know if any are available that have a rear cab or whatever it is you're seeking for this performance based car.

A lot of guys like the new cab forward hard edge bodies. This one is very functional as well l lots of side support. you can always run the old 2.0 body.

ok so my 3.0e will finally be here friday, which means i have one night to build, Saturday to setup and Sunday is race day.

My track is medium-large outdoor, heres a video of my 2nd race ever (im the yellow buggy):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9VjUA0OL9U

was just curious about outdoor setups, im not sure if my lhs will have the 8-hole pistons or not, so if i had to go with the stock pistons what shock oil would be best?

on my 2.0 i use 27.5wt with 55 pistons in the front, and 30/32.5wt with 54 pistons rear, what would be a similar starting point?

diff oil im either gonna go 7-7-3 or 7-10-3

its gonna be hard getting this car dialed in a day and after reading that it needs to be worn in a bit so the joints can loosen up i doubt it will drive great at first, however any help will be greatly appreciated.
