Thanks for the info Alan. I don't believe we've met before. I used to run up at the Sugarbowl . Its been a couple of years since I've raced offroad. Mostly 8th onroad. Getting back to dirt real quick. Im sure I'll make some road trips over to run with you guys real soon.

Hey guys...just trying to feel this out a little. OCM plans to offer a
few different things for 2008. Not a new buggy or anything but offered
in different ways. Just read and let me know what you think. All of
these will be ARR like AE, losi, etc...thats a given at this point.

What we plan is to have the same buggy we have now but in a optioned
model. This will include bigbores(HARDCOATED), option chassis, alum
rear hubs, one piece engine mount, possibly re designed ackerman
plate. It will also include 3 different sway bars for f/r for a total
of 6. Again same buggy as current one just with options...

Approx cost $430

Then we would have a "SPORTS" arr. This kit would be again almost the
same with some cheaper features. Some of them would be cvd's in front
but dogbones in center and rear, plastic chassis braces, plastic
antisquat and anti dive blocks but other than that pretty much the
same kit minus all the options.

Approx cost $300

Same would go for the truggy as well with a slight increase in price
over buggy.

We will also offer both in a rtr model and should start at about $350!

for guys with kits you will be able to purchase these options, as you
can now for great prices....

thanks!

It will include a Futaba sport radio....

I was reading some of your post on other threads. we have a sport line buggy which will be very similiar to our pro kit using almost everything the same as it's brother. Will have a price of $300 or under. You could get this kit and then get what ever radio you want not to mention engine.

Saying you went with a decent radio and engine you could have it going for a good price....

Do you think you will race?

I actually have a JR 3 channel fm radio. I was only looking into an RTR because of the fact that they come with the engine and servo's. I raced electric for about 15 years before I got outta the hobby. A few years ago I started to get back into it but the track was just too far for me to travel to each weekend. Well now there are a few tracks close to me. But it seems as if almost all have went to 1/8th scale. I figured I would get something budget based considering I dont want to get into it like I was before. What kind of part availability will these cars have?

Parts have been avail in plenty since right around the beginning. I keep www.amainhobbies pretty well stocked and I have a lot in our warehouse as well. We are also staring a office in LA so parts will be good.

I would say not to go rtr in your case. Our pro kit is like $370 at amain and other shops and is a great kit. Race ready out of the box. Even if you decided on another kit there are other easy on the bank kits...

If you can wait a few weeks we will have the sport that will be even cheaper and can be upgraded for next to nothing to the pro....

Did some local racing today guys...small turnout but we managed to do
well

Mainly just testing things today getting ready for CRCRC in a month.


However...I did try some lightweight pillow balls (TEFLON HARDCOAT aka
THC) sent to me by Ralph Walters. These are very well thought out.
They have drilled areas to reduce friction and weight, maintnance
free, and of course teflon coated material to ensure super smooth
action. These units are 1 gram shy of being half the weight of a stock
ball. Add that times four and thats some savings!

Throughout the day these worked flawless and held up well. As I run
these more I'll keep you guys updated. As his site gets developed I'll
post the website, contact info, etc....

If you want to email me I can give you his email

I've been wanting to get a truggy for a long time now, and with the expected price on the OCM truggy, it may happen a lot sooner than i expected.

BTW, we had a local series race in Houston yesterday, and OCM's Mark Morrow qualified on second behind TQ Jason Branham. Mark Morrow ended up 2nd in the main, and Jim Miller ended up 4th.
