That remains to be seen

In my experience, even the most bulletproof cars tend to break like twigs when driven on Norwegian terrain on 6S

Somehow I don't think "lighter" or "lightweight" parts would contribute anything to the car's overall durability...

Keeping my RC8.2 would have entailed stocking up on at least new arms, and the CVD's/outdrives I was never sure about(on different fronts - lots of complaining about breaking and fast wear on the silver 8.2 ones..)

I also didn't like how everything was so bunched up around the rear brake disc, preventing me from using clutch set-ups that work with zero issues on my RC8T and SC8.

Anyway, I don't think ANY of the 8.2 stuff is going to make a big difference on the truggy (if any at all). And I mean, there are 500+ pgs. in the 8.2 thread proving pretty much beyond any reasonable doubt that the 8.2 is not even ideally set-up-able itself.. Kyosho shock parts, lower B plates, "zero holes", SC8 rear caster blocks, Avid this, Ghea that, etc.. It is truly a labyrinth, from which nobody seems to have found a way out. There must be thousands of posts just about which shock parts to use, or which lower B plate or whatever.. - and no consensus about any of it. So why make an effort to copy it?..

Whatever guy..

That the RC8T is good and tough too is a given.

That the RC8.2 is problematic to set up is proven beyond all doubt by that dumb thread with all the talk about Frankenparts, "zero holes", Avid this, Ghea that, Kyosho whatever, and on and on and on...

The point is....... there is NO reason to try to copy 8.2 parts to the truggy. Or are there Supersetupzeroholeman? I guess you would know being one of the Frankenenthusiasts.....

But seriously - if I'm wrong please explain how. Why should anyone want 8.2 parts on their truggy, besides maybe lightened diff parts?...

You have your mind set so why bother wasting his time. It's OK to disagree. I can see the benefit of some of the parts from the 8.2.

I think you don't have a clue and obviously you can't drive either my .2 is great with stock parts your setup skills are obviously terrible . Dude you don't know what your doing. Peaple disregard his opinion. Dude ones a truggy and other buggy why would the obvious be interchanble ? So just know that carpet Carlos think you have know Rc skills what so ever.you should by a mugen like I did for my 11 year old so he doesn't have to wrench.

No no no... I'll buy an 8.2 so I'll have to..

So that then is the argument in favor of the 8.2: "it requires lots of wrenching, so it must be good."

The Mugen requires other mfg parts as well. At least the way I would race it. So that won't work.
