Default Parts for the 8ight 2.0 Truggy

I've got my mind set on the 8ight T 2.0 and was wondering if parts would be hard to get since it has been discontinued? I would go with the new 3.0 but I just can't put that much into one right now. If it came rtr for the 599 then I could.

Between the parts from the buggies that fit and the parts from the 3.0 that fit , I personally dont think you will have any problems. There is this place too , if you want to stock up ahead of time

What are the usual parts that would break on the 2.0T?

It's a tough truck. I wouldn't say I had regular issues with one part in particular except the rear d shaft would bend easy. It's a good idea to keep a spare rear diff on hand ,including the gear box but that's about it . I never broke a arm ,shock , or anything like that .

I would cary the usual
  • Shock shafts
  • Shock rebuild kit
  • Shock rod ends
  • Arms f/r (they may not break but they do warp over time and wear out)
  • Gearbox f/r (you want to replace the gearbox whenever you replace the ring/ pinion)
  • Ring gear and pinion
  • Spur gear
That's my short list
