On the spare parts. I actually bought a good used roller and took it apart.

I would get the a-arms, chassis braces and F/C/R diffs. Then if you do break something you don't have buy 2 of them.

I have run the 1.0 and the 2.0. and recently switched over to the CE edition. I like the associated a little more i think. Im still new with the truck. I only have like 5-6 races with it, but I like how much more steering throw the CE has over the Losi. It seems to land softer with less bounce than the losi too.
Im turning the same laptimes with it as i was with the Losi. I switched only because i wanted to try something different, and have been very happy so far. The truck is a lot less expensive and has more tuning adjustments then Losi out of the box. You have to buy extra parts for the losi to adjust rear toe, anti squat ect... After building it, I think it is a better built truck (less slop). Not to say i ever broke anything on the Losi though. I think it handles the bumpiness of Hobby Hut better too. If you decide to go with it you wont be dissapointed and your wallet will thank you too.

um sounds good yea i know the eights tend not to have max steering throw
yea i like that the rc8t has more adjustments and not haveing to buy $$ upgrades lol.

so its less sloppy and it lands softly and doesnt bounce like the eights -t s do . the eight-t s do bounce off big jumps for some odd reason i dont like that ethier.

so the rc8t handles the rough better at the hut defietly a plus

what about the high rear shock tower does that affect the handling ?

how heavy is the rc8t champ ed ?

well i might wait to see during jan or feb if associated has a sale on rc8t champ ed .

It's listed at 9.3 lbs. so it's a little heavier, I think it feels stable. You can find the CE on discount RC for $480 right now. It's $520 most places...

9.3 pounds, that is heavy i think my eight-t 1.0 with the flex chassis is around 8 pounds now with it being heavyer hows that affect jumping whould it cause nose up problems or anything like that ? i do like stable so im guessing you can drive it pretty hard than.

$480 is good ! wheres thats price at ?

Discount RC.


I can't comment on the jumping characteristics. I bought an RS and have been upgrading. I'm not done yet but it mine jumps very flat. The weight I gave you was off the website. Also the 8t 2.0 is around 8.5 if memory serves me so it's not that much heavier. The straight cut diff gears on these are bulletproof for me so thats one less thing to worry about only thing I have to replace regularly is shock standoffs and steering rod ends.... (from wrecks). With all the diff and arm problems the other trucks have I don't think I'd buy another brand. I know some people can get them right and not have trouble but it's something I'd just rather not have to fool with. I'm about to give up on upgrading this thing and buy a CE here within a month or two and save this one for parts... I can't see another brand being as tough as this one, the parts that do break do so to save expensive parts. It's super easy to work on too. I don't for see myself switching anytime soon... If I had to... maybe Xray...

thats not to much heavyer il proberty not notice a diffrence than jumping wise accept maybe softer landings like mark k was saying. but with the ce edition does that come with better shock standoffs and steering rod ends ?
if you know .

also hows the stock setup on a rough rutty track ?

it sounds like the wear and slop isnt a issue on this truggy .

i only club race and go to money races at my track i run in a sportsman truggy class.
