went racing this past weekend and witnessed one of these bad boys in action, cant wait to get mine, hopefully soon! The truck looked very stable and take the rough stuff very well, better than anything else on the track.

Hogle,
I actually got to drive a tank or 2 through the truggy this weekend. It was really easy to drive with a base set up on it. Had lots of steering handled all the rough stuff really well!

Guys, I hope this answers a few questions about the trucks that have
been asked. If you have any further questions you can email us @
teamocmracingusa@gmail.com or call 205 601 5578(10-5)




"We will not release the truck until we are 110% confident it will
satisfy and perform for the customers who purchases it. We have now
have a solid kit in the OCM Kaos buggy and trust that it will make
customers happy. As a racer myself I have personally tested the latest
batch of kits sent to the USA and I am talking with the factory on a
couple changes to be made. The truck is very fast and for the most
part very durable but we feel more attention needs to be paid to the
ring/pinion gears. I just can not justify sending the truck to the
stores and then dealing with problems and having unhappy customers who
have had problems. This will hurt us much more than even a delay. So
once these issues are fixed we will ship the trucks to the hobby
shops. In my opinion the truck needs to suit everyone, from the
beginning racer to the expert with years under his belt. We are
working very hard to release this to the public!"

With that said, it's nothing major. It is just very crucial like I
said to work the mesh and shimming on helical cut gears. THis type of
gear is very smooth and effecient but may not be as "build and go" as
straight cut gears.

So knowing that most people will simply purchase a kit and just run it
makes OCM a bit hesitant on this issue. I spent a little time with
mine, running it to break things in then I checked it. I shimmed it
properly and put a fair amount of time on it. Not to mention it was a
high bite track that I am positive worked the gears during
acceleration/braking. Same goes for our other three test truck in
Alabama.

We will have a few more of our drivers getting them to test and give
us some more feedback.

Guys, again sorry for the delay but I would much rather deal with
this than other problems!

Thanks!

Alan Burton

i could'nt agree more i would rather have a truck that took more time to be released and was very good in every catagory, for newer racers and experanced racers.I would not like to have a truck that is rushed and has small mechanical problems that can lead to bigger problems after you've put some time on the truck.

Thanks for the update.

Put straight cut gears in rtr, helical cut gears in pro kit, most guys that have to mount electronics, motor, etc, know how to shim a diff. I reshimmed mine when I got it, smooth as butter now. Alan, you going to hook me up with some parts?
