Also, Whats the part number for the new longer rear body post? I'm getting one of them for sure.

EDIT: Wait a minute.... Will the longer post work with the originall 808 style body still?

I see the new version on Ebay for $610 shipped and with the 10% Live.com Cashback deal, it's not too shabby.

Honestly, I dont have a problem with this now so I probably wont even bother.
Dont take the chance! My servo saver spring backed off during a main, and my steering was Gone!! If you are not going for the upgrade, then pour CA on the threads...its amazing how we learn the hard way...Dont be a "me" save your servo saver..

Default Active diff

Do you need the active diff outdrive adapters to use the active diff. or will the standard ones work?

Thanks for the heads up on the oil rocco.I had already put 3k in.

BTW I borrowed a buddys Hudy pin replacement tool & did all mine again & must say if your gonna do pins OUT of the car the Hudy tool is the way to go,super easy & quick & super hard metal,no marring from the hammer.Gonna buy my own.

Rocco could you explain what you get from running your front lower hinge pins all the way down & your upper camber link all the way down.I dont understand other than raising the chassis up what it would do.I seem to remember you saying something about it before but cant find it now.

No problem!

I'm trying to separate the roll center and center of gravity so I can get as much roll/grip as I can.

Hey Rocco, I have ordered the new 808 from MacHobbies and it will be here soon. I have seen your starting set-up for the 808 and was wondering what set-up you are using for the race this weekend at Indy Rc? Could you please note the parts that are not included in the kit that is in your set-up? I going to get those parts ordered as well. Here in OKC, we have no XRAY parts at any LHS's. Thanx -Craig

Has anyone had any experience with Prolines V3 series tires? I put them in the rear, they make the car incredibly stable but they steal some steering. Is there something i can do to get more steering with this tires? Should i use lighter diff oil in the rear?

I have had no issues with not enough steering while running V3s as the 808 has so much steering. I would lighten up the front diff oil and see if that helps.

I hope you don't mind me chiming in, but if you want as much roll as possible, you'd want to be running the upper links in the upper position also ? Just trying to understand your reply fully Rocco.
