That's kind of what I did with the plastic spacers I cut up. They're like a thick washer or bushing I guess, depending on terminology.

I've ordered some 12mm wide 12mm hexes to see how that works for me; I'm just hoping the axle size works out.

​​​​​​​Your same question from two days before is still there, I'm sure if anybody does they will see it. What are you trying to figure out?

buddy of mine has the mini 8ight-T and I own the LC12B1. We race a variety of mini sized vehicles at our track.

What would you like to know?

hmm, wouldn't be able to fine that out till aftert some of this corona stuff passes. I'd say no offrhand though from what I recall but could be wrong.

Picked up my mini 8 t last week and after a back yard jump session started hearing the diffs clicking. After taking them apart I found I broke a couple teeth on the front and rear diffs. Ordered 2 V2 diffs and wondering what else I’ll need to get? I’ve seen some talk about a shim kit and what about grease or oil for the new diffs?

Unfortunately the diffs are a weak point on the Losi mini 8ight vehicles. Even my small buggy would break teeth. I don't remember the size but a shim or two should help and if the diffs aren't sealed then I just put some grease in them.

here's a link for the axle shims. Install between bearing and diff... I do mine on the tight side and they are perfect after breaking them in.

Hi, could anyone point me in the right direction on how to dismantle the rear diff please? Looks like one of the diff outdrive set is loose and I cant see what is causing the problem. Thank you.

Default Canít find tires

I cannot for the life of me find off-road tires for this anywhere the mini pins are sold out, what others options would you guys reccomend? All the tires I have on hand are not the proper offset and the wheel nut bottoms out before tightening the wheel to the hub

I'm a little late but no the bolt patterns are different.

Do you mean wheels? Have you tried the ones from the Lc Racing truggy? https://casterracingmi.com/index.php...=ASC&limit=100

Sup guys! Discovered this forum while looking for upgrades lol. I think my wallet won't like me . My motor shaft decided to break in tall grass... so yeah, you'll see my little demon soon enough fully rebuilt here! In the meantime, where do you guys buy the diff shims? Kinda want to add those before having to change my diffs.
