Check out page 159. dragracechief posted a pic of what he did. That's how mine came out and it looks like it will give you a lot more down travel. I don't know what it will do on the track though. Can't hurt right? I seem to be one of those guys that dont feel small changes like that.

TC,

The Losi bars are too wide at the diff case. You could solder on some washers to keep it in the right place if you really wanted to. A page back or so there was a link to A-Main that had the Thunder Tiger St-1 sway bars that were already bent and should fit with no mods needed. Of course you could always do as others have and just bend the bar yourself.

Hi,
Last Sunday I decide to put my RC8T RTR Truggy on the track to test the performance during the first round of local championship. I was surprised at the end of the day with the results obtained, it is amazing how this car has nothing to envy to a Mugen or Losi roller. I take a 2nd on 15 cars truggy A-Main, over MBX6T's y lossi roller's.
In this moment I'm the only one running on AE.

I definitely recommend this truggy, I'm waiting for some upgrades to put my truggy on top of podium.

Ran 8 hole tapered pistons last time out last year and they woked well but I'm waiting for good weather to do more testing to see if its worth pursuing. I was encouraged by my early testing though.

you could try running a little less front droop.

Say you normally run a front shock length (droop) of 113mm, try going down to 110 or 111mm and that should help keep the front end from unloading on power. I did that at the last race I was at and it seemed to help, but there could be better solutions to correct that.

+2 on less front droop.

I will say it made a huge difference when I tried it and I had way too much steering.
