Not if you do it right .. they add two o-rings under the batt box and leave the screw a little loose and i never had one problem nor have the others who did this..
but yes they did eat them at first

A buddy (the local track owner) is a Losi nut he will not run anything else. I was just was wanting some feedback from racers. I am going to start racing at my local track now that their gonna let e-buggies run.

I race every weekend here in NJ (well during the season)
And if your going to go AE I think you'll be happy with it ,, but one thing to think about AE buggys you can drive a bit harder

it's tuff enough .. i would say the losi could take more of a beating but it's hard to say .. i think both are pretty beefy

several guys at our local track run the RC8 buggy and they looks super fast.. I've seen those cars taking a beating with out any problems, there is a guy in the ofna forum that says that the RC8 is not as strong as the new hyper9, why would he say that?

I've been pondering the Losi or the RC8 buggy myself and asked a local sponsored racer his opinion. Supposedly, the Losi's are great on tight, technical tracks (european style) because the chassis flex really helps handling. However, for bashing or more rough/american style tracks the RC8 is a better choice overall.

Both are great buggies but personally I've settled on the RC8 as my next purchase.

I am not a racer nor to purport to be an expert but I do read a lot. The Associated SC8 and the Losi 8ight are top-notch buggies IMHO, and if I were in the market for one I would have a hard time deciding.

Do I smell a new build-thread coming our way?

I myself am a Losi man, but the RC8 is a great buggy. Very touch and handles well.
