I like how the servos, battery, and radio all come out together. My old RC8T is like this as well. I bought an 8xT last winter and was surprised that everything mounts to the chassis separately. Definitely more of a pain in the ass to take my Losi truggy apart for cleaning/maintenance than my Associated. Other than that, I’ve been very satisfied with the Losi.

Installed a few hop ups yesterday although not necessarily “better…” Since these PSM towers are not recessed where the shock bushings go, I’ll have to install ASC81410. Right now, the screws are not long enough for the flanged nuts.

I love my rc8b3.1Eand it’s pretty much the same as the .2 other than graphite inserts and a few other slight changes.

Hi I have the rc8b3.2 kit and am just collecting some of the equipment I will need to run it. Been out of the hobby a long while and excited to get back into nitro rc! I am wondering if this battery will work in the buggy for servos and reciever. It is an aircraft battery, but I can get one at a reason able price if it will work Spektrum model number is SPMB2200LFRX dimensions are ‎3” x 2” x 1” according to horizon website.
thanks for any advice you can give me!

Don’t think that battery will fit in the spot for the battery. Protek or reedy makes a good one that fits.

Absolutely will not fit. Reedy 2400 lipo fits perfect.

Thanks for the info on the reciever battery. I appreciate it! I need a reciever battery and I suppose a stick battery for the starterbox. Does anybody have a recommendation for a small charger for the batteries? I would like something inexpensive and easy to use. For these applications I would just like to plug and play.

you should look at dual chargers, so you can charge rx pack and starter box lipo at the same time, cheap chargers dont have discharge option. Also a good tip is not to charge starter box lipo over 4.0v per cell, cause its not getting used that much and so you dont have to discharge it.
