Default My 8T RTR came w/ 2.0 Radio Tray....

Well, after owning and running my 8T for about 3 months I just now realized that it shipped from Losi with a 2.0 radio tray. The first time I pulled the tray and reinstalled it, I noticed that the servo was resting on the chassis gaurd. I thought to myself no big deal, and just trimmed the chassis gaurd and went on my way. Then I ordered a carbon fiber tray stiffner and it did not fit, just figured it was poor manufacturing and or that they had accidently sent me the wrong stiffner. Looking at the exploded veiws this morning, I noticed the tray in the picture did not look like the one on my truggy, so I pulled up the exploded view of the 2.0 and realized that I have the 2.0 tray.

Has anyone else ever heard of this? Did losi make a mistake? I have always been dissapointed in the brakes and have had some issues with sticking throttle when jumping. Is there much of a difference in the linkages? Could have this been causing the problem?

I just got off the phone with Losi. The representative said they had heard this one other time. They said the 2.0 linkage is a little longer and they are sending it to me.

mine did too!!! I ran it until it stipped out. But i did not realize it until i got the new 1.0 tray. My dad and sister both had the 1.0 tray and mine had the 2.0?? They were given me crap that i just didnt know how to set up brakes, then they looked at how much room i DIDNT have. Never dawned on me until it was time for a new radio box!! haha.
