Default Looking For pics of Drake/Truhe's Naked 8ights

Ive had a look around google and the like but im having trouble finding any.

I need to see some pics of ether dudes 8ights(especially the throttle servo side) with body shells removed for help with my throttle linkage set-up as im using the same engine and buggy as them and i wanna know how they are setting theirs up.

Big thanks for help.

Their cars are running a new radio tray that moves the servo 7mm farther away from the engine. Until you get the new parts their setup probably wouldn't be worth copying. Make sure the return spring is the correct length (cut it if needed) so that it doesn't bottom out when you apply the brakes.

I find it really funny how people (me included) always say you need aluminum this, King headz that.... radio trays, braces etc. and in these pics they are running all plastic being at the top level of racers. I think it goes to show that alot of these cars are really race ready out of the box or closer to it then we think.

its all depends on the track, but yes they use plastic all time because of flexibility.. I use plastic front, aluminum rear along with carbon fiber towers, chassis from matrix concepts and it gives me better chance to prevent flip overs when one tire hits a bump, helps give the suspension better movements. Only problem I have is the brake links, when the chassis twist (xample: front right tire up and rear left tire up, the chassis twist a little, the brake links pull brakes on.) i get it goin little slow.. so thats why i had aluiminum on rear it helped a little.
I am just ME!
