I run 7-10-5 diff fluids in my RC8.2e... Not sure what your driving style is. I am fairly aggressive so I need the heavier fluids in the center and up front to keep the tires from ballooning. When I was running the stock front upper wishbone I was running 37.5F/32.5R. But since then I have change the front end to a single link upper in the front. The update really made the car drive and feel so much better. I currently run 40F/35R and it is soft. But handles like a dream. And this is with the silver springs.

As for the wheelers, I was there running mine Saturday. But with truggy and buggy up for grabs I felt it would be a little much to toss the three cars back and forth with tuning and charging..... And yes I will be bringing mine down on the 7th. That is the tentative plan. But things could change.

Gonna do my best to get there. The only things that will get in the way will be work and how much of a rebuild I do on the buggy, truggy and B44 for the cancer race.

Chad what r u using for the single link. Was on rcten sight and they have a list on Mugen and associated stuff there using together.. was just wondering if just using different turn buckle and rod ends would work? Thanks.

Troy.... I do not run any Mugen parts on my rigs. My front upper link is pretty much the same as Cavalieri's Worlds setup. Some people have been modding the upper hinge pin pills. I didn't want to do that. So I ordered up the "Special" carbon fiber front shock tower from PSM R/C. They are located in Germany. The price was like $25 or something like that for the tower. And shipping was crazy cheap and I had them in hand with in the week.

Here is the link for the pictures of Cavalieri's setup.

And here is the link for the towers.
http://www.psm-shop.com/option-parts...m-rc8.2-1?c=21

We use the stock outer link end on both ends of the single link. You will need extra bevel washers and longer screws. As well as longer front turnbuckles. All in all it will run you about $40-45 for the front end mod. The also have the updated rear tower with the "0" hole. It is about the same price as the front tower. Also note..... These towers are STRONG!!!

As of right now we're in for sunday. I asked shawn about being able to water it. I thought that would be a good idea.
