Signature Ebuggy Build

0 1

  Well I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to team up with some great companies and do an Ebuggy build. I’ve taken a TLR 8ight E 3.0 from our stock at and build it up with all the same goods I have in my TLR 8ight E 3.0. We’ve added a trinity 8 2000kv motor, tekin rx8 speedo, spektrum 6090 servo, and all the products Jconcepts offered for the TLR 8ight-E 3.0. Please see details on how the build went below. is a fully stocked hobby shop located in northwest part of Arkansas and it has been in business since 1996. Gshobby has everything RC from rock racers to RC boats. With a very knowledgable staff and fast and easy delivery, is your one stop shop for your RC needs.  Here are the items close up that helped build this kit. These would be the same items I would use to prepare for a national or an AMS race. First we have a spektrum 6090 servo, best servo on the market for both speed and durability (the word durability you will hear a lot in this car build because it’s key to have a great Ebuggy). Next is a Tekin RX8 GEN2; the RX8 has been proven over and over again to be the best speedo on the market winning countless awards and major races. A trinity 8 2000kv motor geared 15/45 helps this 8ight E 3.0 rocket down the straight away. Next we have nice Jconcepts equipment, which includes a wing, and a set of mounted blue chasers with dirt tech inserts. Above are some photos from the build including the Jconcepts wing mounting and diff shimming. I’ve built the 8ight E 3.0 shocks with 5 hole 1.4/37.5 oil in front and 5 hole 1.5/35 oil in the rear. Spring situation goes green front and silver rear. This is the best starting shock setup that works on most tracks. Diff oil goes as follows 5,5,5; again this is the best starting setup I’ve found and I only have changed the rear diff oil to 3 in some instances. Here are the installation and wiring of the the electronics and a tip when installing the shocks: As you can see the shock spring bottom has the open end toward the outside and this should be the case on all four corners. This helps prevent the shock spring bottom being dislodged or in some cases lost during a race.    Finally we have the finished product, equipped with a custom paint job from EZ customs, one of the most talented RC painters around. Check him out on Facebook at EZ customs.
