thats what they said to me but they wont be ready for sale for atleast 4 weeks they are jsut goign to show them first on the shop site. i think its just away for them to make enuogh so they dont run out as i can see loads being sold on the first day this is what they said in the email i got about being ready for sale its the bit thats say`s widely for sale in the usa within a month so we should see them a few weeks after that hitting our shores

You're in luck. We're in the final stages of completing the molds for both front and rear a-arms for the mini 8ight. We're hoping to have them posted on our website by the end of the week. They should be widely available in the USA within a month after that. With respect to availability in Scotland, as soon as you see them posted on the RPM website, contact our UK distributor (CML Distributing) and make sure they get some in stock for you. I hope this helps.

I don't plan to jump straight in and buy these....but when I break an a-arm...this will be what I replace them with.

I am not bothered about colour as my preference would be black anyway.

Sorry forthe delay!!

This is taken from : http://www.rctech.net/forum/micro-mini-scales/551150-new-mini-8ight-buggy-losi-237.html

I've got another steering fix tip. I used rc18 axle washers 4mm X 5.5mm and put them on top of the Ackerman bearings. They are the the perfect fit! The gap above the bearings to the top plate is .025, these washers are .020 and this keeps the steering linkage from moving up and down and it takes out a lot of slop without binding. I don't have a part number but I do know they go on the rc18 axles behind the hex pin. These are the only washers I found that will work.

Here is the mini 8ight steering slop before video:

Here is the mini 8ight steering slop after video:

So the washer needs to be 4x5x0.20

Lol, I was in their earlier aswel, asked him to put me in an order for the RPM arms with CML and some rally block wheels, then went out for a bash and broke it. Amazing how well it handles off road, I did abuse it before it broke lol!!

The TBones I ordered will help!!

What does you order??
