I'm sure it's been mentioned, but what's the smallest spur that'll fit the stock setup? Part number would also help.

I was going to get the 8mm Revo spur adaptor from RCMonster but they want $40 for postage because I'm in Australia (have emailed them to see if I can get it cheaper).

EDIT: Would the Ofna 45t spur fit? Part No; 35245.

There's an adapter out there that will allow you to fit Revo spur's - I'm running a 36T atm with this adapter.

Just thought I'd update this thread with my progress of a high speed car utilizing the DM-1 chassis.

The car started as an OFNA DM-1e, and still retains the driveline from it.

First I started with just a flat bottom CF chassis:



Then I started working on developing a Venturi Tunnel chassis so I wouldn't have to use so much drag inducing wings and other downforce measures. This is what I call "mark 2" of that chassis:



Here's the top:



I was able to easily do 65.7mph as registered by GPS with this chassis and was able to actually take high speed corners at that speed without the car freaking out. That was only on 4S with a crappy motor.

I'm now on "mark 3" of the tunnel chassis. It has dramatically deeper tunnels, better molding and such. The CF had to be laid down in pieces with my equipment so it's not as smooth as a pro-finished piece. The picture looks a lot messier than it really is, but it is smooth. Now I'm just making some other changes before I get some testing done.



I now have a Castle Mamba XL2 (up to 8S) and a 8S capable motor if I decide to go that high. I'm near a 1:1 gear ratio and if I have a long enough stretch and if the motor holds together, I think this will be near 120-130mph.

Here's a YouTube clip I made of the last test runs of the mk2 chassis:

The adapter you're referring to is the one they already talked about. RCmonster

I'm actually using the adapter on a custom shaft in my RC8Be. I've found the buggy to be far tougher than my GTP-2E.

Also, there's a guy on youtube in the 130s on 6s with a GTP-2E. He makes it look easy. 146mph on 8s

Yes, sorry. I'm also making one of my own - I have one that I think is from RCMonster (got it off ebay) and wasn't thrilled at the tolerance for it.

The one I got directly from RCM is great. I used 8mm drill rod to make my shaft and its perfectly sized.

Why did you have to make a new shaft?

So this is the age old question what other bodies are there besides OFNA branded and the Protoform?

I want another body besides the McLaren....anyone know if this body can fit?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/18-Scale-For...-/130906983817

I know wheelbase wise yes but I think our tires will be too wide.

Unfortunately the Ofna DM-1 Spec E width is 13.19 in or 335mm and wheelbase is 12.76 in or 324mm. The width on that Ford rally body is 310mm so unless I run ridiculous camber I can't use that body right?

I was thinking about order a DM-1 Spec E kit but wanted to know if I can change around the front shocks to "normal" using the SNR Graphite: Front Shock tower
I am not a fan of Front Push Rod Suspension system.
Thanks

Wow, that is a sick speed. How many Ofnas are running that fast?

That is what the part is intended for. I haven't seen this part installed and would like to get some feedback on it. Let us know how it goes.
