Team Losi Racing 8IGHT-X Aluminum 17.5 Deg Spindle Carrier Set
I picked up 2 sets of these when I bought my 8ight XE Elite and 8ight XTE kits a few weeks ago, along with 2 sets of the matching TLR aluminum rear hubs, and while spending nearly $300.00 to outfit the front and rear of both cars, these parts are super nice and the quality is very good, plus they look super nice and expensive. I cant say there is an obvious difference in performance or driving feel as I built both kits with them from the start, but I am certain youll never need to replace them due to failure. There is a bit more overall "slop" on the mounting points than I prefer, but its not bad enough that I want to shim things up. My only other complaint is the price, but its on par with a lot of other nice brands alloy blocks, plus the fit and finish is perfect and flawless IMO. Thats not a knock on AMain as they are always right on par with everyone else as far as pricing. It would be nice if the kits came with them like my Tekno EB48 2.0 did, especially being the Elite kit is $100.00 more than the Tekno. Either way, im such a sucker for buying every optional or upgrade/tuning part i can find for every kit I get that I know Ill get these again when I buy my next TLR X series rig.
