16mm EVO Shock Springs for 8IGHT 4.0

Howdy Gents!

     Today we released new springs for the 8IGHT 4.0 buggies that we are referring to as EVO springs.  This is a full line of springs that are closer together in rate for finer tuning as well as a constant coil diameter and longer in length.  Between the constant coil diameter and the frequency we have chosen for these, these handle much better in all conditions we have found, especially when it comes to bumps and landing.  They are part numbers TLR344016 through TLR344028.

     There are a couple of changes needed in order to run these springs on your TLR 8IGHT vehicles.  You will need to use the spring cups that come with the shock ends in LOSA5435 that were for the older 1.0 and 2.0 vehicles.

     You will also need to flip your shock collars over so the lip is on the top.

Here are a couple shots of the entire line.  You will notice the coloring to be a bit different so it is easy to tell that you are running these.

Thank you for reading and good luck out there with your racing!

TLR 22T 4.0 setup from Horizon Midwest Classic

Hello everyone,

I’m finally getting caught up from last weekend’s trip to the Midwest classic at Leisure Hours Raceway. Good weekend overall with Dakotah Phend showcasing his talents in the 2wd and 4wd mod classes as well as other TLR drivers doing the same in the 17.5 buggy, 13.5 4wd, 4x4 SCT, and Stadium Truck classes. Along with the great racing action, the TLR/Horizon Hobby crew hosted a Q&A session and raised money for the Hobbies for Good. This week, I would like to share my TLR 22T 4.0 setup from this event.

TLR 8IGHT E 4.0 setup from Fall Brawl

Hello everyone,

This past weekend, I attended the 2017 Fall Brawl in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and I had a great result in both ebuggy and nitro buggy classes. The track was super fun and it had super high grip levels at times. Today, I’m off to Leisure Hours Raceway for this year’s horizon classic. Upon my return, I will have my nitro setup posted from the Fall Brawl, but in the meantime here is my winning TLR 8IGHT E 4.0 setup.
