Hey, so I'm new here, and this is the place to say hi to everyone, and I figure while im here, show my stuff (When my camera charges anyway) But in the mean time, ill start with me, Just turned 30, and just bought a losi 8ight (Midlife crisis?) It took a bit of convincing by the guy at the hobby store, i wanted LiPo, I just thought nitro would be too much hassle, but I got convinced, I handed over my card, and walked out with an 8ight 2.0, starter kit, and some fuel. Lucky for me, the boss man there was on smoko, and he spent his smoko break showing me how to start, what to do to run it in, etc. So off i went, found somewhere quiet to run it in, and play around for a bit, and i was hooked. Since then, the engine was run in, i had a good tune on it, all was going well, then i let my brother have a go... less than a minute later the car was back in its bag, broken rear hub carrier Online order for new hub carrier, while i was there, i picked up a new body shell, front and rear adjustable hingepin carriers, and a high downforce wing. That all turned up last week, I fitted the hingepin carriers, and the the broken bit, then went for a drive across town to the track to have a go on a track, and yep, i liked that, made me decide that id want to upgrade the motor sooner rather than later after seeing how much difference there was from mine to what was on the track. While at the track i destroyed my clutch shoes, so ive since ordered a new 4 shoe clutch setup, gen III radio tray, and some new ceramic clutch bell bearings. While waiting for that to turn up, i went to my hobby store to see if they had anything that fit so i could run this weekend, but nope, so i got something close that i could possibly make fit, and then happened to spot an alpha ryan lutz worlds edition on the shelf, and yep, walked out with that as well. So right now, my setup is, Losi 8ight 2.0 RTR, adjustable Front & rear hingepin carriers, and alpha lutz worlds edition motor, i cant wait till i finish running it in Anyway, thats me for now, ill post pictures when battery on camera is at more than 2%
