    Mini 8ight thread

    Anyone else have one? I've had mine since the beginning of summer and I love it! Super simple to tear down /rebuild for racing, burly and hard to break for bashing, enough room for a vilenion motor, and a 2209mah LIPo pack, aluminum chassis, and it comes with spektrum 2.4ghz?! I'll admit there were some weak links I.e. ball ends, servo, supposedly the shock ends which I just put a zip tie over, and the frint shock tower but thats like 35 dollars. For a $250 "mini" these things rip. you can put tc tires directly into them, they're fully adjustable toe camber ride height etc. with way bigger fully adjustable aluminum shocks than a tc or even a traxxas 1/16. Basically a small tc that will also crush your local dirt track, BMx course, bashing spot. Or neighborhood. Post your mini 8ight pics, miss, vids,ideas or tutorials here!

    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    I just have the motor. It's all you need to change. The Losi esc is bomber. Tc tires are tourning car tires ie muchmores

    And the motor wasn't that bad I just bent/ broke the shaft twice. The vilenion motor is way beefier.
