For the 2012 XT8 it would be nice to see a cab forward body and interchangeable parts from the 808 like the old EC days made it much more easier for racing....

For the 808 '11 fix the servo holders by adding a small bevel to the faces that sit on the chassis so the holder sits flush on the chassis instead of sitting up on the side bend section, then rework the hole screw hole to make it round befor you anodise the chassis, not deformed as in the kit.

Servos: How about some more options like JR HV, Hi Tec etc....... and do something about the clearance on side skirts for the throttle servo.

AND an alloy centre diff holder would be a good move too. The XT8 would fit, BUT it's a few millimeters higher for the 48T.

Keep up the good work Xray, ur gettin there. 8)

Shock spring colors...or (less color) ie...gray, white, silver with a small sticker or something instead of purple-pink etc...

some paint schemes would look much better with bland shock springs instead of a color ...not a biggie, just my .02

A couple of things :

- I would like some drive cup sleeves for the XB808 2011 specs.

The image below is from the Ghea Racing web site.

- For the throttle servo : more clearance on the plastic side guard

Just curious, what benefit is gained from running the drive cup sleeves? Seems like it would defeat the purpose of lightened outdrives.

I think it's to eliminate the pins from coming out? similar to the cvd "condoms" that were so popular for the losi's first gen car

That's right. I don't want the pins from coming out. A "Did not finish" because of this kind of failure is simply and definitly unacceptable (the previous system was great for that). I will try some shrink tubing to see if it can do the job.

or these have been made from techno rc with pin retainer clips that clip over the pins to stop them from coming out.

i also had problems with pin coming out and besides even if pin doesnt come out it can move and flog out the end quicker.

This picture shows GHEA coupler covers for the Associated RC8 Buggy (on of my hollyday buggy), not for the Xray. Sorry, this cover don't exist for the Xray in the Ghea part list.

I'm trying to update my 808e with the '11 Spec diff bulkheads and central drivetrain.
Everything is available from XRAY except the drive shafts therefore I vote for these drive shafts.

Have a nice day.

+ A design or part that allows one to adjust the diff without using shims. A grub screw or extension collar - anything :)

+ Aluminum diff covers.

+ Composite/delrin center diff spur gear!

Will keep posting as I build!

About 808 shocks :
You can change the quality of the silicon o rings (black, hobao blue, orange...) design some bigger 16 mm bore shock, put some aftermaket pistons in them... But IMO the pastic shims in the shocks remain simply too tight.

About 808 in the bumpiest tracks :
End of racing season could be a nightmare with your sweet 808. Tracks are destroyed and the 808 is hard to drive in the rough sections pounded by Japanese buggies (they are so easy in these racing conditions, I am crying).

Receiver battery in the front of the buggy :
Yes, it works pretty well and it could make a "fun to drive" buggy (with an easy to rotate rear end). IMO It helps on the rough sections (or it's just because it's simply more balanced). Everybody can try it in a blitz drilling 2 holes for tie-wraps in the right side-guard near the steering servo.

Font center CVD wears out quickly ?
That what I thought after the 2 galons mark. Of course, it depends of the thickness of the oil in the center diff, if you use a graphite grease on the CVD join...etc. It wears out fast.

Porsche system brakes ! Just something where the brakes don't fade out. Nothing more.

Please Huraj, with the help of your team drivers, design, test and race for us a nice buggy for 2012.

Nope. They don't fit...The cup is too small for the Xray shafts. I have a set for my D8. I contacted Tekno about making some shortened drive shafts that will fit their couplers and our 808's. No word thus far. You can use the retaining rings though like below.

Just bend one of the ends so it fits in an empty pin hole. It is springy enough to stay in place and in fact requires a screwdriver to pry it off once you get it snapped it. Been running it for a couple of weeks with no troubles. Knock on wood!

Not a buggy part but how about a 12mm adapter for the Hudy wheel balancer? So we can use it for Short Course wheels.
