All I could think over & over is "well it aint no X-RAY" work friends asked why I keep shaking my head & all I can say is I've been spoiled badly. I'm almost to the point of getting another 808 & do the hack & slash conversion & selling the D8 at a loss before I finish building it. X-RAY ruins the building experience for all future off brand builds.I knew that when I built my first 808 but I guess I forgot how extreame the difference really is.

PS. I dont like the new forum feels very cold/unfriendly anbody else think so? Maybe I'll hit the control panel & see what I can do.
At the begining of the summer I got 2 808s.... One brushless and one nitro. I never ran the nitro so I just converted the 2nd one to brushless too. Now they both get raced.

When we were testing, we noticed accelerated wear on the shaft, coupling and pin. When we went to the coupling with the setscrew it pretty much only wore the pin. So if you keep a stock of pins, you will drastically increase the life of the entire joint.

I won the B and bumped up. I was running well but it was a bit of a hack fest. Plus my fingers were numb after 30 minutes on the stand. LOL. YGPM

hey guys ill be running my 808 for the first time after having it for like 3 months lol but ill be running on a smooth tight indoor track( seeing as we have a foot of snow on the ground). I was wondering what i should be running for shock lengths. Most of the set up sheets i found dont have the shock lenghts on them. I believe i have them currently at 102mm front and 112mm rear.

thats a good starting point , you will increase droop or shock length if it gets bumpy.
