Default Jammin CRT.5 Brushless

There are other threads on this but they all say "My..." in the title so here is a thread for any of the newer (and older) CRT.5 owners to post pictures and discuss. I did a search on Jammin CRT and in 8 pages didn't see a more appropriate thread.

Mine was purchased on the latest Ofna sale. I use the SCRT10 radio and battery tray setup along with the nice "rotate to adjust pinion gap" motor mount. I'm using a Sidewinder SCT with a 14T pinion to start. I haven't actually ran it yet, it's been too wet.

The body is a mistake. I wanted it to be key lime faspearl but I had problems with my cheap badger airbrush. Washed what I could off and hit it with some lexan canned paint I still had on the shelf. It still has shadows of green if you look close. I just received an iwata air brush so I'm going to give it another go with the Jconcepts body I ordered.

Here's a couple of mine. Got into the Crt.5 because I'm running the SCRT10. Figured with the most of the parts being the same it made sense to give it a try. $90 for the kit, $20 or so for the SCRT10 parts, and you've got a 4x4 basically 1/10 scale (when using the supplied Extended chassis) truggy roller for $110.

Nitrohouse is selling these suckers on eBay for $75 right now... the PRO Roller! So needless to say that made me buy one should be here tomorrow hopefully. Also have the Castle SCT combo coming for it as well and I plan on using 2s Lipo. I think Im going to start with a 15t pinion though with the stock tires. Maybe even a 16t. Any suggestions????

Can someone tell me exactly what is involved in the conversion using the scrt 10 parts looks like just the receiver box kit for 20 bucks and a motor mount for another 20. Is it done on the nitro chassis? if so looks like i have to go steal my crt.5 back from my father in law lol.

I don't know where to start with this one. Try again.

I tried 13,15,16t. I settled on 16t. The track I run at doesn't require a ton of top speed.

Just Search ebay for Jammin Crt .5, put the space between t and .5. I also saw them for sale on something called Rcdeal, I think.

You'll need the SCRT10 parts...
1. Motor Mount
2. Battery tray
3. RX and ESC tray

That's it! The battery and other trays can be had as a group, the motor mount is seperate. I scored the parts needed for $20 on ebay. The Crt kit comes w/ a metal spur geared center diff, it can be used but, the SCRT10 comes w/ a plastic spur that's a little easier on the ears, but it's not necessary.

If your thinking about it I suggest you guys get on it. They won't last forever and the 2 ebay guys selling them sell quite a few, I've checked there feedback.

I paid $145 for the kit with a Picco engine. It's the current deal on ofna.com. I sold the engine for $69 so even with shipping I've come out a little better or equal to the Ebay deal. Not bad.

I used OFNA part number OFN40946 receiver box kit which comes with the battery tray, receiver box and a few other plastic parts needed for the electric conversion. $12

I used the nicer OFNA motor mount. It has a cam design which seems a little nicer for setting gear mesh. Part number OFN40957 $38

That's about it for the electric conversion. The Sidewinder SCT cost me $92 shipped from superior hobbies in FL. I'm using a Spektrum S6040 servo which was $80 at Amain. But then I needed a $5 cap to make the digital servo work with the weak Castle BEC.

So without radio equipment I'm into it just over $300 not including extra tires and wheels I bought and the extra Jconcepts body I also picked up.

If you're really paying attention you'll notice I cut the ofna battery tray down quite a bit and am just using velcro straps to hold the battery. The lipo I have was too loose of a fit in the tray and I didn't want to have to pad the whole thing with foam.
