anyone know of any lightweight drivetrain parts for the rc8t?
It seems the rc8t drivetrain has alot of drag compared to the losi 2.0 and the new mugen. Which both I have owned.

What are the alloy drivetrain parts like for wear? Do the pin holes bust out quickly? I used to run mip alluminum cvd's in 1/10 scale years ago and they were ok but still wore quickly and had no where near the load and force on them as with 1/8 scale nitro....

Has anyone here had them for a fair amount of time to comment on the wear?

Ok, down to the motor mount. Just curious to which is better, one piece and two piece. It came with the two piece but I had a spare one piece. Also is the plastic chassis braces better than the aluminum ones. Thanks in advance.

The stock mount is great. If you flip it over and remove the 6 short flathead screws instead of the 4 long screws on the top, you won't need to re-mesh your clutch/spur gears, and it's also quicker to pull off the 6 short screws. Hope that helps.

+1 i got two set of mounts. one on my race motor and one on my practice. so all i have to do is pull the 6 small screws and through in the other motor put the screws back and go race. no need to mesh.

As far as the 1 peice and 2 peice mounts. The 2 peice that came in the CE is the same used on the RTR versons so the spin start would work. but some of the team drivers used them saying it fed more flex in the chassis than the previous 1 peice design. Hence why there on the CE kit. I have bolth but am not a good enuff drive to tell the differnce. lol

Man have u ever talked to a bad chic all day and at the last minute she just want to hang out. This is how I feel right now. Last night I picked up a #56 drill bit thinking I would be able to drill out my rear piston to 1.2 x6. Well the truck is built and have u know my dang on drill want grab the bit. Any how I guess I will stick to 1.3 x7 and go to 30 losi oil instead of 27.5. Sorry for all the dramatics. This kit was a blast by the way to build.

Man you are ate up. Had a couple of those in my life time. Especially at Mrytle Beach.

Bcrazy is that a wrap, like vinyl.

Also, any one having issues getting ride height with Shanes setup using ae silver front and ae bronze in the rear. Trying to get 38 front and 43 rear and the lowest I can go is 40 front,
