Detailed Information

 Starter Box Modification:

To help prevent the chance of pebbles locking up the flywheel, the 8IGHT was designed with a smaller hole where the starter wheel bumps against the flywheel.  Most starter boxes will work, but if you have a starter box with a wide wheel, then you will need to chamfer the edges with a file (Reference the red triangles in the pictures below). Be sure to use eye protection. It is also critical that your 8IGHT chassis is lined up "perfectly" with the starter wheel on the starter box. We recommend doing this while you’re assembling your 8IGHT after Assembly Bag F.

Chamfer the edges of your starter wheel. Please wear eye protection while filing.
Make sure your 8IGHT lines up perfectly on your box.
