Default Losi 8ight conversion

I am buying my first 1/8 scale this weekend, and was just wondering what to look for and what I should know about it. It is a Losi 8ight that has been converted to electric. It is running a 2000kv Xerun motor, everything included except batteries and charger, and I trust the guy I am getting it from

If you are referring to my sig then I am not talking about nitro/electric, I am talking about setups, dialing it in for racing. people always have something to say about Traxxas having horrible handling, yet mine keeps up with anything in its class on the track.

I do not understand where you are coming from with this anyway, all I am asking for is advice and info on this buggy. I could honestly care less about why you think people switch to electric. Id prefer it anyways, year-round racing (indoors/out), equal or better power, less BS and more cutting faster times. Its all personal preference.

Welcome to RCUnivervse! Land of the oddballs and useless posts

I've never run an electric 8ight, but I start with a setup off Losi's website for my old nitro 8ight.

I'm with KB on this one, it's a great starting point, you can tweak it to your driving style from there.
