wanting to get aluminum rear hubs but which do i get pitpop if you could chime in it would be appreciated i think that cody and pavidas are running the +2 offset hubs with the inserts in arms on the inside position so overall width is the same. if this is correct what characteristics just this change for the car more or less traction if any or handling on different conditions thanks for me upgrade parts are a big hit to the bank so would like to get your input before buying them or the original standard off set ones thanks in advance also r u guys running full rebound in your shocks thanks

Hi Jewn... we are running nearly full rebound, just enough droop screw to take the load off the shock when it's down all the way... as far as the 2mm offset hubs go, the shorter lower arm should be more consistent and effect the roll center in some way that would take a computer generated simulation to fully understand . As far as cornering and such, I don't think you will notice a difference as event he top guys haven't noticed a profound change.

I always bleed them and try to get as little rebound as I can. I find that with new diaphragms, it's a little tougher and you could be happy with 1/2 rebound. After some use, you can bleed the shocks and achieve near zero rebound. The most important part, MAKE SURE THE LEFT AND RIGHT SIDES ARE EQUAL

Default Considering this kit

Possibly looking to get this Kit/ or one of it's versions.
Should I get the SE,TKI, or TKI2? This is for club racing/practice driving.
I currently like to drive my RC8TFT like I stole it, hard on gas, hard on brake, will the MP9 fit this style, for a short Technical track with many,many turns and 1 short straight?

i have that driving style since i also came from truggy back in the day and i think the car will be a good fit for this style you can buy any of the kits all good if buy the se kit then can buy up the upgrade aluminum balls and turnbuckle links and stuff to get it to tki and it will be all new or you can buy a used tki orig. kit and then just buy the short rear tower and medium shocks for the back. or just buy the tki2 but not needed all three cars are good the se and tki2 rear shocks and tower are shorter so will change handling from tki orig. but besides that the all the same just depends on how much of the bling stuff you want on your car se and tki2 should drive the same tki2 just is lighter buy a little and has some upgraded parts on her

it will fit, but how are you gonna mount throttle/brake servo? If you're looking for more weight forward just mount the batterie to the sideguard on the front (Tebo did it on a certain track). But you won't be needing it, just drive it!

I think it's a no brainer to get the SE car... it's great right out of the box, or you can upgrade to lightened drivetrain as the stuff gets worn. Also, you can lighten with the aluminum pivot balls and keep the steel ones which NEVER wear out. On the radio box thing, I haven't tried it. I suppose it could work, but that gets in the way of where we are currently mounting the battery.

Any reason why alot of the drivers are running the battery up near the stearing servo?

The reason some are running the battery up front is to gain steering the same reason why people were doing it on the first rc8's

You may be able to custom fit one of the AE forward battery boxes.... there cheap so I think it's worth a try.
