Get the alluminum rear bearing inserts
Put the HD diff cases in instead of the stock ones
Gethe alluminum center diff bearing insert
make sure you threadlock all screws that thread into metal
grease the ring and pinion gears
grease the center cvds and run them with the cvd condoms

I have done that to my 8ight and it has been running solid for almost 3 years with very little wear or breakage.

You can find all the information you need and some on the 8T 2.0 thread, but if you don't want to read all those pages look at the thread that says something like Things to do on a Losi 8t 2.0 ...........

Default 1.0 thread

if you're looking for the most comprehensive read on the 8ight 1.0 then u must read this:


its 561 pages...took me about a month to go through it but it's worth it...a lot of experienced guys and experiences involved in that thread.

Good luck!
