What size wrench do I need for the turnbuckles on the rc8t. I have a 5mm and I think a 5.5mm doesnt work either is it a standard size?

I use 5.5 mm on my RC8T, but the wrenches have widened up, so I went to my craftsman tool box and grabbed a 5.5mm wrench from it. Works good.

Curious - anyone have an "elegant" way to use a starterbox for both rc8b and rc8t? Something like an overlay plate for the buggy?

Electric is like watching TV with the volume off.

Not that I have seen on both on one box.

well then you probably look kind of silly putting it on a starter box...or do you just make nitro sounds like Jones from police academy

j/k - I went the electric buggy route for a while....and found no one to race. It'll probably take year or so for it to get good down here

I have the OFNA truggy box and to make it work for both buggy and truggy I left the rear mount loose and marked it for both buggy and truggy and I would move it back and forth depending on which I wanted to start.

Wanted to get some opinions about my chassis. I busted the rear molded brace. And bent the rear of the chassis..I bent it back and put on the round aluminum FT brace and it bent that and popped the ball end off... im thinking maybe its soft now. Cause on 5 gallons through my old FT I never broke or even bent the rear brace. I do have the FT square aluminum braces.. but thought they were to stiff?? I haven't raced with them yet.. but just what i've heard.
