Default Hyper 8.5 Pro

So are there any tips, tricks , etc for this thing?

what are people running?

Im trying to score some jammin X1X 16mm big bores for the buggy to replace its stocks.

but until i do what oils , springs, etc should I run?

I run on a rough dry track, with long jumps.

so far I have ordered 5000wt oil for the diffs and XTR crime fighters for the tires.

what oil/ springs should I get for the shocks ?(they are stock right now)

Here's a pic of mine:

I run orange/red HoBao springs, I don't think these are available in the US though, I got them from Taiwan, I run 40wt in the front and 35wt in the rear, as for diff oils, I run 5F /4C (spider diff)/ 2R.

This is the setup that works for me, you could try different oils and see what suits you! you will not be dissapointed with the buggy, it's very durable, I've had my 8.5 since it came out, around 10 months and I've only broken a front arm!

have fun!
