Now that you mentioned about the bevel crown and pinion, I realized I trashed my bevel pinion 2 days ago when I lost front braking. The pinion was totally chewed up! Crown gear is still usable, but looking forward to replace it....BTW is there anyway to spot the difference between the early version gears and the latest's? Thanks again

www.amainhobbies.com has all new items...


all the gears were actually fine. In the very early stages the bulkheads were just a bit soft and after a bit would heat up in the rear and strip mesh.

Any parts purchased now should all be new, as long as you get from a legit hobbyshop. I advise against purchasing from rc pro center on ebay

Thanks!

Hi Alan, I'm not arguing here...lol
But I thaught the old pinion was soft aswell, it also didn't have the real good mesh to the crown that the current crop of buggies have. From memory it was heaps smaller too which required adding shims to get it closer to the crown and also from memory the circumfrance of the fit to the centre driveshaft was too small aswell.
I personally wouldn't use the old pinion, I know the crown gears were fine though.
For those that want to know the difference between the old pinion and the new one. The new one has a raised stopper on the flat section end where the grub screw goes in from the centre driveshaft.. So if you can imagine, if you were to just slightly undo the grub screw,, the little stopper prevents the centre drive shaft coupling from pulling free off the pinion shaft. that is until you undo the grub screw completely. (hope that makes sense)

His name is Steve Pitts... he said he is willing to update it to the evo... how much money would that be?? I know the suspension upgrade is $60 but how much would that other stuff be? Also is there a number I can call to order these things direct from the factory? Thanks alot guys I dont even have an OCM yet and you all are already being helpful!

Kev, true on the flanged area.

But I do know the older style would last many many gallons when shimmed correct. But of course they newer stuff has certainly progressed

Talking OCM buggy

Lane, after seeing what these guys are saying about my OCM buggy,its probably better off with you just going ahead and purchasing a new kit. I cant see spending more on this buggy past the EVO upgrades. Its a good buggy but if I were you I would get what you really want out of a new kit.
just my 2 cents.

I am still using the old ring and pinion....14 gallons on them. I hve all the new stuff but didn't see the point in changing when my old ones are fine. When shimmed properly they will last forever.

I agree with Shane. If shimmed well, I think the original internal diff gears, and original ring/pinion gears last quite well.

Once you get the buggy, go through your diffs, just to freshen up the fluids. While there, check the shimming on the internal spiders. (I like them 1 shim away from feeling notchy.) When re-assembling, make sure you shim the pinion gear in towards the ring gear to get full tooth contact, but not enough to rub the diff housing or get real notchy.

If you have any problems, just holler' because you'll find the OCM guys will jump hurdles to help you out anywhere we can.

Default ocm buggy

While I got my buggy monday and it by far exceeded my expectations.
The first pick I posted is the buggy to where it is at right now, just got to get a new motor. The second is the buggy with my new body.

King Nitro, I think he will be fine....

In all honesty he does not have to have the evo....

He can spend hardly nothing and be good to go


Jake...looks good


When our new shocks come in a couple weeks they will be all but bland! 17mm hardcoated, threaded bigbores

ahh......the good life,lol
