On page 39 there is a picture of a fuel tank. Anyone knows what it is? I just bought the Jammin X2T tank since that is what someone said it was but it doesn’t fit. (unless people are re-drilling the post locations)

hey guy did my first race ever this weekend. I won the sportsman class by 22 seconds. With a bad throttle servo so my brake was only aplying half way. I was running the stock set up since it was my first race i was just trying to get consistant laps. My fastest was a 31.314 and average was around 32.7. the pros were running 28.34 consistantly, i think with a better set up plus the steering mod i will be able to get into high 20s for lap times also. i plan to run the mafield nitro pit set up. what do you guys think.

I have maybe 10 runs (if that much)on my RC8T FT and I noticed the rear, front arm holes hallowed out in an oval and rear holes of the rear arm still circular. I replaced the rear arms and if it happens to my RC8B and again to my RC8T looks like I may sell them.

Waste of money if I would have to replace the arms after every 10 runs or less.

My cars are better when there is a little slop in them. You shouldn't worry about keeping everything so tight. I keep mine sloppy on purpose,when it is time to put new red spacers at the rear hinge pins I only replace one at a time to keep some slop in it.

Agreed^^ A little bit of slop in the suspension arms stops things from getting bound up in rough conditions and also lowers wear and tear as theres no binding with every movement..

If anyone thinks slop is to bad, i hate to say this but have a look at the Losi 8ight`s they have enormous amounts of slop and yet they seem to handle better that way...

I also agree, makes for a less twitchy ride, afterall, this is off-road, not on-road.

The holes for my rear a-arm are as follows. front hole in a-arm(one closest to center of chassis) is 0 (or oval shape) where I was able to fit a 1.5 mm allen wrench tip in around the hinge pin. and the other side is O= perfectly circular.


It was not back and forth slop.
