Horizon Insider Track Day: TLR 8IGHT-XE

Hello everyone,

This week, I would like to share a post from our friends at Horizon Hobby with a cool installment of the Horizon Insider on FaceBook featuring TLR's 8IGHT-XE. Below is a direct link to HH's Facebook page and the contents of the post.

"Track day fun at RJD Hobbies and Raceway! In this installment of Horizon Insider, Kyle brings out his new Team Losi Racing 8IGHT-XE for some initial testing/driving with the kit setup. This bone-stock 1/8 E-Buggy proved to be locked down on a less than ideal racing surface and provided a solid base setup to build off of in the future!"

Three must haves for tire gluing

Hello everyone,

This week, I would like to share my three must-have items for better tire gluing. First up is choosing a good cleaner. Simple green is my cleaner of choice and I also make sure to have a clean microfiber towel.

Next, be sure to have a good set of  tire bands, as this keeps the tire tight against the wheel. Horizon Hobby has a great selection of tire bands HERE.

Last, but certainly not least is having a fresh bottle of glue. TLR has always and still has one of the best glues on the market. You can find them HERE. Friendly tip:  be sure not to leave your glue in a hot environment.  I keep new unused bottles of glue in the refrigerator and I keep them there until I'm ready to use them.

Gear Box Gasket Set, 8ight X/XE

New Product: We have released a gear box gasket set for the 8ight X and 8ight XE for those tracks that have super fine dust.  These gaskets seal to chassis to gear box area so you no longer need  to use black grease and make it so no dust can enter your drive train.  Each package of TLR241061 comes with 2 sets of front and rear gaskets.

The first thing you will want to do is remove the center section of the gasket as shown below:

Then you will peel off the backing and place them into the recessed area of your chassis in the front and rear gearbox section as shown below:

Good luck out there TLR folks!

Video Blog (SS Raceway)

Hello everyone,

This week, I would like to share another short video blog.  I give you an interview with track owner, Ronnie Setser, a couple of laps from here at SS Raceway of my TLR 22 5.0, and a little update about me. Ronnie let us know what's coming new to SS raceway, and how he's gotten to where he is today.
