Ok So I just recieved my 008EU car and im wondering a few things...

1. How do I know if the belt is tensioned right?

2. How do I know my rear diff is tight/loose enough and how do I adjust it? i know stick a hex driver in the hole but which way tighens/loosens the diff up?

Thanks a ton!!!

I really love this car it drives amazing...

Sweet, where there's a will, there's a way. Thanks Franco and Arun...be expecting an order shortly.

I just received a NIB 008 US spec kit as parts of a trade with a buddy of mine.

What is needed to convert it to a EU spec kit?

Chassis, upper deck, hard arms front and rear instead of the extra hard, medium c-hubs and rear uprights, 52mm driveshafts, and a spool for the front.

But you could get away with just the chassis and upper deck, and replace the other stuff as needed.

Default Pinion and or motor help...

We ran today after finally drying the track out after a good rain.

My 2'008 ran fine however was seriously lacking in the straights.

The guys I am running against are running 4.5 motors against my 7.5 Novak GTB.

Here is the setup and temps.

114 spur (I think), 27 pinion, 2S 4900 lipo, Novak GTB 7.5.

The car has good power in the technical portions of the track but needs a bit more to be competitive... Should I just go to a 4.5 motor or is there a pinion combo that will keep me in the pack?

Motor 150* ESC 120-130* Pack 110*

if your running a foam chassis on asphalt with rubber tires your not getting ANY flex what so ever so your arent getting any kind of traction whats so ever.... so yes to be fast on asphalt w/ rubber tires use the EU kit

If you were to run the us on asphalt, use the absolute softest possible flex setting, run soft springs all the way around such as 2.4's or 2.6's, lean your shocks in pretty far, and use some pretty soft roll bars like 1.2's, and go from there. It would be smart to convert, but it is possible to make it work

Default Outer posts...

I removed them and got some flex out of the car. It is handling better in the turns so far. What all do I need to get more flex out of it?

Also what spur should I go to with a 4.5 motor and be able to keep the 64p pinions I have?

Help a fella out...

What is the best way to get this thing to run on asphalt?

And your still getting some flex, just not as much. And you cant be fast on asphalt with rubber tires on the US kit
