Thanks for the feedback guys.
I was able to fit a RC8B3 diff and pinion in a RC8. you will need a new set of 4 bearings with smaller inner diameter for the gearbox/pinion and shim it properly to match the pinion to the diff gear (~1-2mm shim between the pinion and gearbox.

I just picked up a RC8T3.2e. Gonna see first hand what I could and can work. I like my original rc8t and rc8b I just don't want to get rid of them. Now if I could find a tekno v4 kit for the truggy I would be golden. Had one back in the day and loved it.

woops, just realized what you wrote. To answer your question, no there is not an rc8t3.2e thread. Only the original rc8t3 which I have read thru.. all those issues have been fixed. Also did you mean thicker chassis. M2C racing makes a 7075 chassis for the rc8t3.2e which is supposed to be stronger than stock. I believe it's still in stock on amain.

Hi All,
Looking to get into nitro buggy, probably with a 3.1/3.2. (if anyone has a roller cheap pm me ). My question is this. Most used rollers don't come with flywheel/clutch/endbell assembles. Will any mfg setups work? I realize tooth count may vary, but are there any other differences? Thanks for the help

Default Setup help

Does anyone have a good set up for a rough track? I've tried lots of things and my biggest problem is the rear seems extremely loose the car does not feel balanced I've tried a bunch of setups online and they just don't seem to work

whats your current setup now?

But a shot in the dark...i would try and shave 1mm off the front of the rear arms, and add 1mm shim to the back of the arm. Shock package: front (3x1.4, 2x1.5) 40wt, rear (3x1.5, 2x1.6) 37.5wt. Stiff bladder at full rebound. Maybe add a bit more rear toe to help track straight
