Ask Tony

You got questions, I have answers. Feel free to ask any RC related questions; questions on tuning, on article cars, on racing or just to ask how I’m doing! I’ll do my best to answer all of them.

QUESTION:

Hey Tony. I have a question about the Losi 8IGHT-T; will the front, center and rear diffs of the 8IGHT-T 3.0 fit in the 2.0? Thanks
Joseph B. New Orleans, LA

ANSWER:

Hey Joseph, Yes. The vehicles share the same diff cases, however if you’re looking to drop the 8IGHT-T 3.0 diffs into an 8IGHT 2.0 Buggy (question was a little unclear), you’re going to have some gearing issues. The diffs and cases are the same, however the ring gears will be a different size; the 8IGHT-T uses bigger gears than the 8IGHT. Hope this helps. Good luck!

—Tony
