I also run 2mm of washers between the rear upper arm plate and upper plate. I run mugen gray springs up front and mugen blues in the rear. If you are using KMWs i run #2 pistons all around, and 30 wt losi oil with jammin silver springs in front and 27.5 losi with jammin silvers in rear. This is only a recommendation. It gets my car around the track pretty well. However this weekend I am gonna try 4-5-4 in the diffs.

thanks for the setup ill have to get a copy of this when i get home.

ok guys...talked to the factory last night and everything is ready
now! We apologize for the delays but we really wanted to make sure the
product was ready and improve a few things as well.

Amain Hobbies will be restocked up soon as they should have one of the
orders by the end of the week.

We will also be catching up on any back orders and some left over team
orders.

Thanks for your patience!

Default Redline .21 engine report....

I to have finished break in getting ready for this weekends regional
race in Florida. I took it out of the box, inspected the internals
(everything was clean and ready), installed it and started the break
in. I chose the heat cycle method which has you running from the
start in 3-4 min cycles. Or once it is up to temp you cut off and let
cool to outside temps. I did this for a tank(4 cycles). I'll also add
the carb was very close for break in from the factory. I then went to
running it a tank at a time letting fuel run through the engine. I did
this 5-6 tanks letting it cool down in between tanks. Each time I
increased the trigger a bit more, at all times being very easy and not
blurping the throttle. So after that I have it at about 75% and I'll
do the rest on the track. Of course do it how you feel comfy and take
your time!

Report so far....

motor has a great sound, feels strong with a smooth range of power. It
looks like it will have plenty of top yet maintaining a good smooth
bottom and mid range. It was easy to run in as and I say use a heat
gun to get the engine over 200 for starts. I sued a OS p3 turbo plug
and tilted 30% nitro. Brad will also be running his this weekend and
we will keep a close eye on runtimes, temps, power, and lifespan and
report back along the way.

Thanks!

you can look around at the online hobby shops, example Amainhobbies,
Bmainhobbies, or Caralinas R/C, one of those should have it

Ran the car this weekend and made the A in The 8 state shootout in Kentucky. I was pumped to put the OCM in the A. There were around 70 pro buggys there so that says a lot about the pace of the car. Had some rear diff issues in the race but thats OK, learned a lot about the weaknesses and how to make the car better.

I spoke with Alan this morning and we talked about the diffs. From the factory the pinnion and crown gears are not shimmed. Make sure you look at both the front and rear diffs and shim it properly. I had an issue with the rear pinnion and crown in the rear end this past weekend and it was due to the play the crown gear had left to right. I did shim the pinnion in 1 shim but you must also move the crown gear in towards the pinnion 1 or 2 shims (whatever you can get in there). The bulkhead allows to much play so shimming is very important. Once done you should be good to go.

Also, I noticed some bearing movement on the outside of the rear bulkhead on the pinnion gear. Keep a close eye on that and replace the bulkhead when movement is noticed.

The front diff seems to be great with no shims. very smooth and quiet--no issues, but i will shim it tonight just to be sure.

I also boiled the rear hubs for 20 minutes prior to the race. I have broken several in the past with one being in the A main in Savannah two weekends ago.:/ I think that helped as I did not break one this weekend. I believe OCM knows of the issue and is reworking the plastic for the future. I plan on installing aluminum ones when i get them.

Had a couple guys ask me about the new wing this past weekend. They saw it on neo-buggy. Sounds like people think its a nice design. I have not recieved one yet, wish i could have advertised it.

Hope this helps ya, --Dave
