    RE: Redcat 1/8th 8E Touring Car Build

    Sorry to bring back from death that old post, but my friend & I are currently doing this conversion with our Backdraft 8E.

    I was wondering what diff oil (front, center, rear) to use for a touring setup?

    We will be racing/drifting for fun in covered parking lot during winter

    And while we're at it, what oil would you suggest for the Buggy version?

    RE: Redcat 1/8th 8E Touring Car Build

    wow, im glad this post got brought back. I never saw it before.

    what a sweet idea. wonder why redcat hasnt thought of slapping a 1/8 car body and tires and selling it?

    and onroad car takes much less abuse as well. so the diffs should hold up awsome for this use.

    bet it could be geared up a fair bit as well. probly achieve 50-55mph without overheating.

    also, that paint job is simply wicked!

    Done @ 95%, I still need to find a way to lower the suspension and get stiffer shocks to avoid ripping off the body.













    It also needs windows tint.

    RE: Redcat 1/8th 8E Touring Car Build

    So this is just a stock 8e with an on road body, on-road buggy tires and lowered suspension? I may have to do this, I can see myself getting 110mph out of a car like this on 6s without too much trouble.

    RE: Redcat 1/8th 8E Touring Car Build

    Hey guys, I see the thread has some new adds so I thought I would continue on a new build. I still have the body but sold the chassis. I had another one on the shelf so I thought I would make another one since I never really got to drive the one I built. Here are some pics of the new one I built with Ofna chrome wheels and I added dark tint to them to give them a darked out chrome look. Still need to get some tires on it.

    Yeh, I wish they had come out with an onroad version of the 8e.

    The 8e's are fairly tough...but an onroad version would be perfect as onroad driving isnt as harsh on the chassis/diffs as offroad driving.
    and there are so few 1/8 onroads out there.
