if anyone in here still has an 8ight can you confirm that the 808 spur gear will fit on the losi diff case? if no one has an 8ight still can someone measure the middle of the holes on the spur for me in a cross pattern and square? thanks

The 808 shocks have felt in them that's self cleaning, but X-Ray is making a shock collar that will hold a boot. Some Drivers have been using shock covers with good success. Just personal preference what drivers like.
Ive posted this before, but until we have mud guards and rubber shock boots for the 808, these shock covers will keep that damaging mud out. ...and yes, they fit very loose so they dont mess with spring ratio.

You can get them here:

I think if you have a small reciever, you can put the hump pack where the reciever goes, and the reciever where the stick pack should go.

but Idealy, a straight pack is what you need

I had a blast driving my 808 this past weekend. I am really getting settled with it. The fastest guy in the Amain almost lapped the field with his 808. His and mine just look so dialed out there. Now that my V-spec is broken in I am hoping I'll be up there with him.

I do have one concern. I was using the front torque rod and it popped off during my main. I am worried that I may have bent the front kick-up some. Can someone measure how high the front of the chassis kick-up is off of a table? I am thinking I should go back to the plastic brace. I did take a metal square-t and verify that my chassis is not banana'd.

I wish I had a previous buggy to compare the 808 to. I dont, but I do know I can turn tighter then just about anyone on the track with it. Which helped me take my First 1st place finish with it this last weekend .

My GOD! You finally made up your mind! JFWY! Hope it does ya right. Heard they are tuff.

Anyone recommend a good cheap lipo setup for the 808? My helotes packs will work but I would think moving all that weight to the outer part of the chassis would not be a good thing. Or am I wrong?

I got a brand spanking new kit, modified .21 8 port nova rossi, and jammin jp 4 pipe with new body everything BRAND NEW for $25 more than the 808 kit costs by itself.

and I dont plan on doing pro racing just club level racing so I think the hyper will be fine for me.

I get to go pick it up tomorrow

The car was designed to have the weight towards the middle of the chassis , however I have tried a flat lipo in the standard spot ,and I tried a lipo in the recvr. side.I didnt feel a difference ,so Im using a htbatteries 1500 lipo on the recvr. side(fits perfect) and a spektrum micro recvr... with the regulator in the standard battery area , all with plenty of room . just my take on it

Was driving mine today for the first time. I must say it is a very nice buggy, but I was having one problem. I'm using a flat 2300mah lipo and the Losi regulator wgich sits pretty much on top of the Rx. After a few minutes of driving the servo's and Rx went dead. Well the radio box was pretty hot, the engine temps were at 230, I'm thinking the temp of the engine and the heat generated by the regulator made the Rx go down. Turned it off for a couple minutes and everything worked again for about eight minutes then the same thing. Yes the lipo is charged, yes I rebound the Rx to the Tx. The other thing was the steering servo (Futaba S9351) was bouncing side to side alot, it's done it before but was the most I've ever seen.

The Tx and Rx are Futaba 3PM Fasst system. Is my problem coming from heat? The radio box is really close to the engine and the heat from the regulator may be doing something? I guess I could mount the regulator to the outside of the radio box lid and get rid of the switch, not sure that would help.

I think quite a few people were having issues with the faast system overheating. Not just in the 808 can someone confirm this im not 100% sure.
