I'm not awear of any after market CV's for the truggy,

There might be some, but they could be worse than the stock ones. Best I can say is to measure them and see if another Mfg. (Losi, Mugen, for example) had some of the same length or that would be close enough to use.

Try posting this in the RC8B forum. All I know is there was the original RC8 then the updated RC8B came later on.

There is only one RC8B. I think they are always fine tuning.

Hey guys, I got an RC8T RTR about 2 months ago, changed out the diff oil to 7/10/5, put an aluminum clutch from impulse-rc, and also changed out the bearings on the clutch bell, ran it this weekend and it ran alot better than the stock setup. My question is what does moving the battery to the front do? I've been reading alittle bit about it but haven't read what does it do or whats it good for.

IMO it helps improve overall steering.

Is it because of the weight? I don't see how much extra weight your adding to the front.

Pistol,

The weight is the reason. The old style NiMh pasck were/are pretty heavy, so moving the weight forward help with the steering. I have an old pack in the front of mine with a LiPo in the stock location. Seems to work pretty well, I might get around to weighing the packs so I can add a little more weight forward to rebalance things.

Not only the slight shift of weigh but my main reason for getting it was because the original battery/reciever box was a mess with everything in there. The extra servo wire plus the battery and RX squeezed in there made me want it. Moving the battery up front let me servo tape the reciever down and neatly arrrange the wiring.

On that note the bad part is you have to take screws out to replace the battery.

My $.02

Outdoor season is in full swing any new setups? (shane)?
I am just running the out of the box CE setup. cant complain really had some great results, but think it can be faster. I think the rear is a little stiff. going to try some smaller holed pistones with lighter oil.

The only thing I changed for outdoor is 1/2wt thicker in the rear and went to the kit positions for the shock angles.

So has anyone in here switched from the losi to the rc8t ce? Just wondering as I have driven an 8t 2.0 and thought it was dialed, mainly in the steering department. Just wondering what peoples thoughts were on the rc8t's steering on tighter tracks.
