I like the body. A lot of guys at my track run crazy colors simply because although it is well-lit, it's still kind of hard to see your cars at night. A buddy of ours went 100% hot pink with a yellow wing....I've seen floursent green, etc. Anything to be able to recognize your vehicle.

How are you liking that radio tray? What other upgrades did you make?

Its actually race red, my phone makes it look like its pink. Also it has the thicker shock towers and chassis. The tray is good, gets the throttle servo away from all the heat of the motor and center diff but it seems to flex a little even when end points are set correctly maybe its those awesome servos

I still have an original 8ight, the only thing missing is the radio tray and shocks, I saved the shocks for my 2.0 buggys, if you need one for spare parts its here collecting dust....pm me if you are interested.
