Default Losi 8ight

Whatís up guys!
had my 8ight for about a year now and want to add some upgrades to it. So far I have Hitec servos on it and an MT-S controller that I love!
Iím definitely looking for new tires as mine are shredded and an exhaust and manifold.
I was looking at proline wheels and an open to any recommendations It seems most prolines are still in stock, but discontinued for this buggy. Why is that?
As for the exhaust I was thinking Nova 9986 or 9901 with the short conical manifold.
Im looking to get more torque, but hopefully not sacrifice too much speed on the top end.
Last but not least, what would you recommend upgrading suspension wise? (shocks, links, hubs, etc.)

Long post, but appreciate any help.
If anyone has a custom 8ight, would love to hear what youíve done as well!

Get on FB and join the Team Losi Racing Group. That is live and active and you will receive plenty of opinions pretty quick. What model 8 do you have? What track surface do you run on? Track name? What engine are you currently running. I would think most racers dont mix and match engines with pipes. There are plenty of hopups for the car, just need to know what model. You can also find all the parts on Team Losi Racing

Running the stock .21, just bashing around so far on grass and pavement.

Thank you for that, I was searching for builds to reference but couldnít find some parts. Numbers are listed on this one, thatís awesome!
The steering links in his post were exactly what I was looking for too.

try a tuned pipe and header, But outside of that, if you're still looking for more, time for a new motor.
