I think OCM used to make stronger arms for mbx5s, am I right?

SWEET! Just make sure you sign up by this Saturday by 8 a.m.....Thats when sign-ups close....

Cool, stop by the "Box Van" if you need any help/questions. We run at altitude all the time!

Alan - Thanks man!!!!!!! This is AWESOME support. I have to say, I'm very impressed!

BushyAR15 - I will be at that race personally and I will make sure you get your parts, and anything else you may need. I'm a representative of OCM factory and will take care of anyone needing help. I've seen pics of the new EVO and I should have parts to test shortly, I have been told it will be available for stupid cheap to existing customers as an upgrade.

roscoe71 - OCM and Competition Distributers parted ways for alot of reasons, be assured its for the better, as OCM factory is the principle behind OCM USA and it will handled is the most professional way. They are available at the office for questons, tech and parts support ocmamerica.com has all the info for contact hours/days etc.


I have quite a bit of time on my buggy wihtout a single part failure, I raced our local state race this weekend and couldn't be happier. The buggy ran faster lap times than any truggy and felt great. I feel like I can do things driving this car I could never do with a mugen, I pushed the car and hammered down in the main and it took all I could dish out. Here's a link to my setup sheet and the track surface we ran on. I will post things on my putfile page periodically if I need a pic to explain a setup question or tips.

mugen4life - apparently you dont remember the mbx4 or the first runs of kyosho 7.5's every manufacturer has gone through a learning curve.

post said that you have to do alot to make a mugen "race worthy" and still has "bad parts" oddly enough all the parts i have gone through are 3 shock ends 1 boot and a clutch bell in 1 season racing almost every week.....shock ends are by me,the clutch bell is due to a laped car trying to drive through me (basically tried using me as a berm).... car has used 4 clutch bearings and is getting some new shoes.....not slamming the ocm just stating a fact as an owner of a car getting dumped on.

Thats what Team Magic has done and I hope OCM does not do the same thing.

I like my DT-19 but if a new kit is what it takes to get a better buggy (than my std) , then I'm going to take my money to Kyosho, Mugen, Xray, or one of the established brands that stick with a design for at least a year and I know that the previous years model is solid...

Now I'm not asking that OCM give away the "EVO", but how about a discounted price to those that already have a previous version...

Don't let me down OCM!!!
The EVO is in Developement stage at the moment and the release pics were only a teaser and to show the critics out there that OCM are not sitting on there hands. The EVO has come about by listening to what the "Drivers " want.
The EVO will be a ridiculously cheap upgrade to current OCM owners when it is released and later will be a new product in it's own right.

I would like to take this oppurtunity to say that this car is just awesome. The amount of steering that this car has is just insane. You can also drive it just as hard (or harder) as any other car out there. Not to mention the support is just awesome thanks to Alan. You can always get ahold of him if you have questions and such. Thanks again for a topnotch product.

As usual, comments of new buggy are purely hearsay basis. Critics themselves dont own the buggy hence their 2 cent is really worth nothing. We have seen it happening many times over.

Opinions are like assholes.......everyones got one

OCM-DT19 is the most affordable Prokit straight from the box without any need of option parts as the DT-19 comes fully optioned.
