With that being said Yes you should make the switch.It can get to be a headache waiting on parts to come.

The alu input cups work fine for me, but I wouldn't recommend the alu stub axles on the T. The extra stress from the extra weight and larger wheels takes a toll on them. I ended up shearing 3 of them in 2 months doing nothing special... no major offs or bad landings that I can recall.
I know they work fine for some people, and I've had no issues with them on the 8.2, but I went back to the steel axles on the T.

Default Gas tank

[QUOTE=RavensNightFury;11928149]Well my local hobby shop don't carry my serpent stuff only team ae and X-ray and losi stuff[/QU

A spare gas tank is a must have for the T,,,Or you can do the Hot Bodies tank upgrade.
A few pages back a few guys were talking about it.Doesn't seem hard to do at all.

Mhhm, I wondered why they are not in the RC8T FT kit as they are in the Buggy kit, so I think that may be the answer, the bigger wheels a bit more outside=to much load.

I have had the truggy since it was introduced and can honestly say the truck is pretty much bullet proof. I only remember actually breaking something at the track which was a plastic rear hub due to a bad landing.I would recommend carrying the caster block bushings part#89029 assuming u are running the plastic caster blocks they are notorious for falling out if they are not loctited even after u Loctite them I would still make sure there tight after every heat.Good luck!

I really like the p5xlt .They have smooth power and get good fuel mileage.They are very easy to tune I have ran other engines that where very finicky to hold a good tune. Another bonus is their reasonably priced.

Default Swing rack steering

If I change the steering from bellcrank to swing rack on the Truggy, how long should the turnbuckles be ? 68 mm or 70mm? Any idea?

You can just cut a little off the ones u have now. That's what I've done with zero issues.
