Default My Truggies

Sorry, I just wanted to post some pictures of my truggies, both are Ofna Hyper St Pros. One is mine and the other one is my 8 year old sons. I know they are nothing new, but I really like them and they are tough. I have put on Losi side guards, Jammin center diffs, Lightweight Kyosho spurs, Mugen tanks and will be trying out the RC8T chassis braces so I can reduce a little weight... on mine, I just took off the Jammin Big Bores and I'm trying out some O'donnell Z01-T shocks.

how do you like the nova 3 port on the truggy, is it a stock one or a modded one?

Is there a reason why your running that mach cooling head in the direction in the picture.

You might get cooler temps if turn it 180 degrees so that the slots are facing the front and back.

tc5 man - I do like the performance out of the Nova motor, it's very strong out of the corners.

dishsoap - I never really paid attention to that, thanks. I will take a look at spinning it.

PEANUT - I know I had to use the Mugen mounts, but I can't remember right now if I had to drill new holes. When I get home from work, I will let you know.


I also added an extra stiffner by the throttle servo to stop some of the flex in the plate.

Peanut - I used the original mounting spot for the rear of the tank and drilled new hole for the front mount of the tank. This is a way better tank than the original one.

Do you also get on the ofna forum I think you are the guy that pm me about some close up pics.

That truggy is looking nice I like the mugen fuel tank a lot better that the X1CRT tank that I have on mine. I was going to wait to switch to the mugen until I have the bce chassis but I might just switch now.

Yes, I do frequent the Ofna board. I love to see other guys trucks and get ideas that may help performance and or just look cool.

Thanks
