Losi mini 8ight home made hop-ups

In this vid, Im not pretendig likes or unlikes, just to share my experience  with (now) great car with aftermarket  no-LOSI parts1_I got dissapointed  on my first run (2s) lipo,  I realiced a stupid hiper-sensitivity when breaking , due to the ESC   (sure)
Unless you know how to setup these stupid (again) clutch, you will need tons of spur gears
Solution , change system radio  to 2.4GHz   GT2E  cheap system, and install a programable ESC like  Hobbyking 30A and add a fan , no metal spur is needed….  about 20 bucks2_ The motor combo is not intelligent, Esc has not cutt-off  (I think) and the sesitivity Is horrible,  the motor is good but….  the motor mount can not stand the motor position  if you hit the car so many times ,  paid atention to the 2 screws position in the motor mount, they are not placed diametrically opposited, as a result motor mount can twist case of some crashes, due to the motor length (more length) more possibilities to twist …and destroy spurs )
Solution  buy a 5600KV  24×30 mm brushless motor at  banggood, or hobbyking   9 bucks a ammazing motor with 2S and 14T pinion,  motor gets hot but doesnt reach  water boiling  point    100º celsius and very important , better acceleration despite   high KV  that doesnt strees 2200mAh lipo battery (very important)3_Now we arrive to the home-made hop up
The transmision system really sucks, the dogbones based system is a mess system, that destrois the out drives and output yokes, and sincerously I dont pretend waste my money and my time dissasembling my Rc every moth,  I customize the transmision system whith traxxas and team asso parts
I still am using the original out put yokes  because Im using a (soft) dogbone  (1/18 team asso mini ) with a  copper bar instead steel bar installed by me , as a result I only need to change the copper bar every 30-40 full runs  and I only spend 5 minuts
On the othe side (wheel side) I use a traxxas female drive saft  and  stub axes, these stub axes let me use  standard 1/10 wheels   beacause of the standard hole size that traxxas uses  ( dissapointing point for LOSI  again )
The only problem is to fix the male side (plastic-copper dogbone)  with female traxxas drive shaft) well you can stik it , if the tramsmision works near to  be horizontal there will not be a problem  to be fixed  (male and female)
You can use as a male  half thin dogbone, you only should to  change the iron bar for  copper bar , aluminium bar  or another softer metal Finally I changed electronics possition due to ne ESC size , I placed the esc  where the battery was, and the battery on the wing , that way car do wheelies   easyer  without loosing too much estability,  of course you can place the new esc  where old esc , but the fan will not work good if coveredAfter so many rusn and hits, I broke part of front diff case, not being able to tight the 2 screws
I decide not replacind this part  but  fix it with  flexible iron wire..see photoAnother  upgrade was to change the  spoiled  (after only 10 runs)  servo  Another dissapointing ..point , I bought a 1/18 sized digital servo on hobbyking ..less dan 5 buksTotal money  ESC +fan  20   Motor  9   servo  5    others  10  Radio system yet owned  25
Total amount …. to much for a new dissapointing car
