Thanks!

VP Pro and Xray wheels don't rub.

Beta, RB and AKA wheels all rub slightly at full lock

We've also tried Pro-Line wheels but I can't remember if they hit anything......

So this is wheel specific.

I've just taken my Dremel and removed a tiny bit on the wheels that do rub.

Thanks, fellas! I'll look into it. I think I have a set of Pro-Line wheels so I'll check them out.

Not sure if its related but there is some driveline chatter at full lock as well. This is due to the extreme angle on the CVD. I have reduced epa of course because of that. For the TC classes we use DCJ joints to prevent that.

here is mine with the finnisher



thought I would hate it looking at the pics but I quite like it in reality!

could someone mesure the longitudinal play of the center diff with the stock metal spur? I installed an AE plastic spur and need to know if the play is ok (I hope not to start a flaming cession for this question)

It's the same body that was released with, and available since the 808e came out on 09 unless they made a little more room for battery it looks identical.
I found the j concepts illusion for Losi 8e fits pretty good and I found a way to mount the proline bulldog for the Losi 8e. Just had to take an old rear truggy body post and cut the base at an angle to mount on the buggy front body mount since the body post on the bulldog body comes thru it at an angle. Took 3 minutes to make the front body post and body fits great

It's an XRAY, top quality. It will drive as good as you drive it. If your any good the car will win and if u stink then the car won't break.

basically he's right

the xb9e is easy to drive, planted feeling, forgiving, comes with excellent shocks, best quality parts, good price, is nice looking, hudy steel,...

you can't go wrong

The Losi 8e bulldog body looks close to the stock XB9 nitro body, just had to do that front body post mod or you could lightly heat the body and bend at front body hole, the way the body fits the mount goes thru where the body is sloping up to windshield but it fits great after that just mount up before painting to get body lines and holes right
