When trying to post this to the losi 8IGHT-E 4.0 wiki the DB keeps giving an error.

Overview http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...4#prodOverview
Manual http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...04#prodManuals
Pictures http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...4004#prodMedia
Parts http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...04#prodRelated

I'm not sure if the data column isn't setup correctly or what but check the DB error log for anything specific.

I suspect this one:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...it-thread.html

But they appear to be working now.

It works when using this BB Syntax

I've left the beginning [ and ending ] so you can see this code
Code:
  url=https://www.phpbb.com/]Visit phpBB![/url
But bombs out when you use this syntax in the wiki:
Code:
 url]https://www.phpbb.com/[/url
Try it yourself. Something isn't configured correctly for all BB Syntax

If it's not working, add it back in there, post a link to the wiki you're talking about, and I can see for myself. I can't really guess that there might be a bug if such and such were so. I need to see it so I can report it.

ibobi,

was trying to post this:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Q: Which car should I get?
A: Buy both if you can afford it. Or buy one that you think you need and wait for a used one of the other to buy at a discounted price. Much like the B5M/B5, having two cars can allow you to adjust to varying track conditions.

Conversely, you can buy the laydown transmission parts so that you can change a B6D to now have a laydown transmission.

See the Q&A below for the full parts list needed to change a B6D to add a laydown transmission.

The other questions you have to ask yourself is:

What kind of surface am I running on? Is it high bite or low bite? Carpet or dirt?

Here's some perspective from AeRayls:

"The only reason to buy the B6 is if you plan to run carpet or turf, that's it!

For any other surface including switching back and forth between dirt/turf/carpet etc buy the B6D and any parts to convert as it'll be cheaper and easier."

*Here's another perspective, from Wildcat1971:
"There are 3 main differences in the 2 cars.
-Gear Diff / Ball diff.
-Front flat/gulwing arms and tower
-Laydown/3 gear stand up.

Pic 2 of the 3 that you want and buy the kit that comes with those."

Here's break down from Kody Numendahl via facebook:

There seems to be some confusion about which car to buy between the B6 and B6D. A lay down gear box isn't the only difference between the two kits. The B6 also comes with a gear diff and gull-wing arms/tower. I attached a photo showing some common configurations that drivers will want to run and which kit I would recommend for each.



Q: Will the B6 work on dirt/clay?
A: Yes, it will. Which one works better for your particular track will depend on how much experimentation you do and how high the traction is.

Q: What parts transfer from the B5m to the B6/B6D?
A: http://www.rcten.com/threads/b5-b6-b...ty-list.20367/

Q: Are the C and D mounts the same on the B6D as the B5M?
A: No, they are different.

Q: Does the B5m body work on the B6/B6D?
A: No.

Q: Can I put my B5M diff into the B6/B6D?
A: Yes, with shimming.

Q: What parts do I need to add a lay-down transmission to my B6D?
A: *thanks to Boucher starting the list*
You will need the following parts (complete list coming soon):

91708 Laydown gearbox
91709 Chassis braces
91715 Laydown motor plate
91716 Idler gear
91739 Body
91703 Gear diff (if desired)


Q: Why did AE change the ball cup design?
A: Here's the answer from AE's Tim Tunnerman: "The new ball cups are smaller in outer diameter, more enclosed to help keep debris out and improved consistency and fitment. Particularly under load."

Q: What are the turnbuckles made of?
A: Nickel Plated Spring Steel

Q: How can I fit my B5M diffs in my B6/D?
A:The B6 diffs are 2mm wider (1mm per side). The new part number for the gear diff includes the needed spacers so you can run the B5 series gear diff in the B6. They are just using the rear axle spacers they made for when using the +4 C/D mounts on the B5. The small spacers are not needed.

Q: What does running the shocks on the B6 in front of the rear tower do?
A:The shocks on the front of the arm lets the car change direction faster for very high grip conditions.

Q: Why was there such a short turnaround between the 5 and 6 series? The b4 lasted 10 years!
A: Racing has changed dramatically over the last three to four years. Tracks and traction are changing. The need for a new car was necessary to adapt to all the new changes. You can still run the 5 series competitively. Your car didn't just get obsolete overnight. If you think about it, the B4 to B4.1 and then B4.2 progression were responses to tracks changing in traction and configurations. AE was just able to adapt the same platform.

There is a high probability that we may see a more frequent life cycle time for vehicles.

To the http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...6d-thread.html thread. I got database errors.

Thank you for the wiki's!!!!!

I can finally post "factual" information about the XB2, which is much needed. The current 1st post is just a non-paid advertisement.

Be sure when you post a link such as the RCTen like, you use the LINK button in the toolbar. Then it will post no problem.
