Default The rebirth of my Ofna ride.

In the quest to try something different and was leaning toward the cab foward bodies. I brought out my good ol X1X ride and changed a few things. I was in experiment mode as I was looking at our LX-2 before we had it announced. So I looked it over and tried to come close to what the LX-2 looked liked. It looked like a mutated beast with rusted screws and an old scratched up chassis and worn parts but after fitting on an Proline BullDog body it had some potential, so I took it out for a test drive to see how much the body change makes the car go around the track. And I must say Damn!! this thng drives killer and has the steering it was missing. Now my X has now been called the Nexx(by my choice) but with more changes here's my list on what I did.


Proline Bull dog body Mugen MBX but will also try the Hot Bodies D8
X2 gearing 41128 x 2 with 18tooth clutch bell 10404
cnc c-hubs as they have the 2nd option camber link
cnc lightened balls and ends 41116
cnc lightened diff cross pins 30774
carbon fiber front shock tower 41105
carbon fiber rear shock tower 41104
cnc front upper arm holder B 40588
cnc front lower arm holder B 40589
cnc rear toe plate 3.5 40577
carbon fiber front top plate 40568
stock sway bars
titanium turnbuckles 40670
blue front spring 41028 1.4 mm holes 32wt shock oil
white rear spring 41022 1.4mm holes 27wt shock oil
5k-5k-3k diff oils
red aluminum clutch shoes 40926 two golds and a 1.0 10010 copper spring
and our new comming soon Hong Nor 2047 pipe
LiFe 1350 battery
Serrated wheels nuts 10994
cnc fuel line exhaust cooler 10193
x2 center diff assembly and x2 spur gear 41102
x2 truggy mud guards drill new holes to fit 41033

I can say I'm sure having fun driving this it feels like new ride.

I've been using the MBX6 and is a lil tight, but Chad told me to use the Hotbodies Bullgog it has a little more room, and make sure you use the truggy mudgaurds for the skinnier body or your going to have to cut the old ones and that doesn't look pretty.

And also I've been puttting alot of time on the buggy and trying set-ups and power bands, when running at Rev, it has been putting down soild laps times and 10min tanks runs with our new pipe that's comming soon the Hong Nor 2047, the pipe has been out for while now but we did not bring it in, but with the way the engines of today, the 2047 is now working good with nice bottom end power and ripping to end. It has really pepped my engines like my Evo II, Jammin JPX .21,Ninja/OS and my JL.21. Ran some JConcepts Double D's with 35wt front and 27wt rear for the shocks and stuck to my 5k,5k,3k oils,can't wait for this week for the JBRL as my buggy has been suberb.

I have not tried the D8 body yet but that what Chad said to run on it, we had an Ultra LX-2 body here and I got that one to also fit with extra clearance on the sides, I did put some velcro on the front to tighten up the body to the stone guards, but works. I've got to try a D8. So Mugen fits but just a tad tight, LX-2 has some extra space.

I just got a X2 and I'm looking for something a bit narrower than the stock body....after looking at a bunch of different bodies, I think I'm going to try a Bittydesigns fighter body for the MP9....looks like it should fit well (and I'm not too keen on the cab forward bodies....just my opinion )

Thanks for the input,

Andy

I also hated the cab forward bodies, but I had to try one because other peeps said it made a difference for on power steeering. And now I'm a believer it really makes the handling so much better.
