I did have to make the slots for the motor mount bolts about an 1/8 in longer to get it to fit but everything is snug the brakes will lock up all four tires it hauls

Here is some pix of my DM1e chassis.







The motor mount holes has been slotted all the way to the edge it should take a 30t with no problem.

Personally i've tested SNR Graphite parts quality on very aggressive environments of racing, they are VERY TOP QUALITY ...

Good luck with this Steve, and keep up the awesome work you do ...

2 speed is nice and fun to play with but as for racing it is slower than single speed.

Hi: First post and I hope I don't get into trouble for posting here,but since this about the Ofna DM-1 Spec E, rather than start a new post,here goes. I am looking to move up from my Traxxas Rustler VXL,which I am using for only speed runs. I have recently installed an FLM aluminum tranny case to somewhat lessen the heat problem that occurs with this Velineon 3500 motor when running 3s lipo and low gearing. But there is only so much one can do to this truck to make it go fast and not really into going there anymore,(Castle 3800,GRP's,etc)
I am seriously looking at purchasing a new Ofna DM-1 Spec E car, but am debating until I can do more searches for something along what I want the car for and then I finally found this site,where there are actual owners of this car.
I am also looking at the Traxxas X0-1,but the Spec E car seems way better built with the aluminum chassis and the front and rear suspension looks way more involved.
What other cars were you looking at before you aquired your Spec E?
I just want something for asphalt running, speed only, no racing.
Something else I should be looking at, maybe the (DM-1)?
Thanks,Huck

What's the best way to adjust the droop on the rear end ?. I saw you can use the swaybar stops to adjust it or can put in grub screws into the arms and adjust it that way.

What springs are you guys running ?.
