Default Tell me how to power my Losi 8ight 2.0T.

I will be acquiring an 8ight 2.0t in the next few days as a roller and i want to know how i would best spend my money getting it moving? Tell me what motors you are running and what the best servos i should buy for the money. Yes i want to get into racing but i've still got alot of practicing to do before i feel comfortable on the track with other people. Thanks for any and all advice you can send my way!


oh, and any negative reviews will be helpful as well, i want something i can get out, tune and go!

Im not sure about the pricing for the right servos, but i don't want to buy anything that won't hold up. Motor-wise i'm thinking $200ish. Would probably spend more if the consensus says that it is worth it but i highly doubt i will spend anything over $300.


Maybe we could start a discussion explaining why bigger isn't exactly better in motors on a truggy. Should there be a specific RPM range that i should be looking for in a nitro motor?

Oh, and i am definitely looking for nitro....idk if i mentioned that before!

nVision 521R + 2058 for an engine & pipe combo, and Radiopost servos. This way you can run unregulated LiPo.

Ok guys, got my truggys! I think i am going to go with the savox servos. I see the 56/58 is a bit cheaper than the 67/68(high voltage). What does a lipo regulator look like? Will the high voltage servos run a typical lipo pack down any faster than the alternative servos will run a nimh hump pack down(or a lipo with a regulator?)

The regulator is just a inline plug that you put on a lipo and only puts out 6v.A lipo will last all day especially with a regulator.a plus about lipos is that they deliver constant voltage without fade that is typical of nimh,they start off @ 6v and gradually fade away.As far as your compairison will still last alot longer and still have more power.
