Well i got mine less than a week ago on Friday built it Saturday and raced it on Sunday.. its the fastest handling truggys on our track between the Xray XT8, the Losi 8T and the CRT X1. Im running stock FT setup with a Jammin .21 engine and Werks 2013 pipe.. silly quick on the bottom and top speed is crazy on our 140 foot straight. Love this truck out of any i have driven the steering is insane brakes are excellent! Kudos to Team Associated on this build!

I have over a gallon on mine now in the past week and the only thing i have had go wrong was the steering servo horn stripped under a very hard crash other than that i havent seen an issue yet with this thing.. and i have to say this thing is almost bullet proof.

Offset refers to the depth of the mounting hub on the wheel itself.

Half-offset wheels are 1/2" offset meaning they will stick out a half inch further than a zero-offset wheel.

The 8T has extended hubs designed for zero-offset wheels, from what I saw today. I watched one run and the guy has ran a revo for the longest time, and did pretty well with it. He was a LOT faster today with the 8T

I have switched to the 1/2" offsets and the buggy hubs. I don't like the extenders. Personal preference.
