On a serious note, I didnt quite get your question there, OCM is the brand name, the buggy is DT-19. As for moogan/caster look alike I think many other buggy too looks the same, except for the likes of Piktor

To me, the buggy technology and design has come to a plateu hence looking alike/rip off(which ever you prefer) and to set a difference would be the durability and pricing,dont you agree?

i like how when a new buggy gets released every body becomes an expert all of a sudden without ever owning one.

the same thing will happen when the new rc8 gets released etc
Opinion is like an asshole cause everyones got one , no pun intended

Honestly, I drive an MBX prior to DT-19 and I improved a lot with the DT-19 not to mention my DT-19 is still runing the same parts like the lower arms and such from day 1 and it has seen 4 races now plus training, anyway,no point bragging ,let the video do the talking

you can increase your front droop by leaving three threads showing on the shock shaft. this is what i am currently running. there is a new shorter front tower in the works to increase front droop.

I saw a photo of Billy Easton's OCM and he clearly had Mugen shock caps on the front. Does anybody know if he was using MBX5 shocks or MBX5 "R" shocks?

billy is lead R&D developer for ocm usa so he will be using all sorts of different stuff.

he is using mugen mbx5 bodies with ocm internals including shafts pistons bladders etc.

i am using all ocm shock parts with no issues. don't look to billys car for information really as he is trying new stuff and different parts all the time to develop the car futher.

OCM stands for Original Concept Model, an Australian (I believe) manufacturer.The buggy has been around approximately 2 years, yet only 6 months ago being released in the U.S.A. I have 3 club races and several practice runs on mine so far. While I have had a few minor issues, noted in LKH's latest pics, the buggy is stout and handles very good. I'v been racing buggies for 3 years now. While I have bumped into an A main a few times with other buggies, I've never actually qual'd into one. My latest club race I finally did just that, quald to start in 7th. I'm unsure of where I finished, but I remember hearing the announcer call me out, saying I was in 3rd at one point late in the 20 min main. So far Im very pleased with my Kaos and look forward to more tuning time

true to a point, the buggy has been in development in australia for about the last 18 months or so & has only been released to the market about the same time as the united states etc received there's. & yes ongoing development still continues to improve the OCM KAOS DT-19.
