8s is truly carzytown - U upgrading the gears? What diff grease will u throw in? Im sure your good - just went thru upgrading a 4S MT truck to 6S and ran into problems with the gears and blew two diffs.

T-Bone Racing Front bumper arrived today. They make solid products. Was at Bruckner Hobbies today in the Bronx - picking up my 10 year olds HPI sprint2 Flux and ended up buying those ProLines - lil taller a LOT wider...90 bucks and had to re-glue them as they came apart after 2/3 balloonings. SO I have TBone wheelie Bar & front bumper, Pro Lines and will install the 277/0Z servo tonight.

That leopard fit in it fine? I want to do the same swap since i am bored with 6s already after a couple weeks owning the nero and still have another NIB yet to open i may return but with the factory tires being so cheaply made i am trying to figure out how to get 1/5 24mm hexes on it. I think the Integy HPI adapters may work (pin through) with some modifications or i may have to machine them myself. Ive ordered imex wheels if i cant figure out the wheel issue i will pass on the motor upgrade. I have no interest running street tires. Looking for water skipping, mud slinging power. Id like to skip across my pond, lol.
