I just bent my front shock tower They're the DT 0086 version, which is not the EVO kit. The centre diff mounts are rather very expensive don't you guys think?

Lnace preheat the oven to 350F and then bake the wheel and tire for 15 minutes, and with gloves on pull out them out, and the tires should just peal off with ease...

are you talking about the cnc center diff mounts? I feel like they are on par with most other comparable items. But, yes they are not the cheapest things I suppose. However they are very nice though. Very well designed.

So you need a first gen shock tower(non evo)? Shoot us a email to teamocmracingusa@gmail.com

I have a large amount and can get it out to you since I'm sure the shops no longer have this item.

Thanks bro Yeah they do have some in stock. BTW has anyone here broke their OCM steering knuckles before? I had history of breaking kingpins (Kyosho, they're the toughest! Could've been worse), and the knuckles were aluminium pieces back then. My OCM pieces seems to hold up, but only time will tell.....

guys first day out with the OCM and it was awesome! I pulled the car out of the box filled the diffs and shocks with fluid set the toe and camber. I made some small adjustments with the caster i put the shims behind the arm instead of in the front and put the .25 inserts on the upper hinge pins and the car was good, and by the way i used the stock OCM blue springs. With this setup i qualified 3rd finished 3rd ! So not a bad day at the track for the first time out with this car. If anyone wants the exact setup i had on my car you can email me at gixxer75021@hotmail.com.

Jason and I did have a good outing today at Planet RC in Indianapolis. We both put our OCMs in the show. Jay had a good shakedown of his car, and only had a few minor new car issues.
I am really impressed with the new evo ARR. I am on an older car with an evo upgrade, and I can tell that the new car is built better. The build quality was first rate, all the CVD were loctited. We had a good time. I have my car working really well, and I have a good agressive indoor setup. I will get it posted in the next day or two.

Here is a new gadget from OCM. You can use these to hold your tires together for storage.

Been waiting too.... was hoping to get everything prior to the Nitro Challenge or the start of the JBRL and BOTW series. Looking forward to racing something new this year.
