Also the rear end spins quickly , the local track is tehnical with 2 big jumps and ground is dusty/slippery . what would be the best setup , shock oil and pistons , l also have spare 808 big bore shocks but rear shocks are shorter .
l really hope l will find the right answer

Regards , Marko

What we have found is that since the Electric is heavier, It will need a heavier
shock fluid to help with the pack. We are running 5 hole 1.2 tapered shock pistons
on the mugen Mbx7. shock oils are 700/650 cts rated fluids.
You might want to work on the weight bias of the battery. Moving it back a little helps a lot with the rear end traction.
hope this helps.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but does anyone have a stock chassis for the 808. Preferably new. If so, please PM me.

Thanks!

I am looking for some dimensions on these screws.

I am looking for the shoulder length from the bottom of the cap to the end of the threads. Also the diameter of the shoulder.

Thank you very much!
