Looks awesome. Congrats on a good choice.. You won't be disappointed. I know I'm not with my D8T..

Some HiTec servos, and you are ready to go..

Looks good, I built my D8T last week and was so excited about the build I forgot to mask the windows on the body before painting it, lol

lookin good!

a couple of tips for a new ride. replace the stock fuel line with some thick losi fuel line or similar, then removed the black fuel tank coupler, and run the new fuel line from the clunk through the hole in the tank (this is why you need the thick fuel line) to the carb. the coupler is prone to leaking, and the stock line sucks

notch the mud guard under the exhaust stinger to get the pipe to sit lower and more level.

also notch the fuel tank wall under where the zip tie goes for the lid pull. sometime it gets hung up on that and will not let the lid close 100%

if you have any other problems come to the official D8 thread. lots of good info there

Tiggertrucks- yeah that is exactly what i done to my body. i was so excited to paint it i completely forgot to mask the windows. And to be honest. i dont think it looks that bad, well at least the way i done it. the windows ended up metallic black. looks like a stealth bomber now.

fatdaddy- Thanks for the tips. i would have never thought to change the fuel lines. I'm gonna need all the help i can get, because i plan on racing when the weather gets nice. like i said, i still have to get some servos and then I'm done.
