Drake and Waldron for sure, and anyone else who is currently sponsored by losi I would imagine will have to start running the losi car.

Now I was like why would they do that beings them and thundertiger are together. but this guy says that is what he has heard from ae. now whether this is all true or not we will all have to wait and see.

It makes sense that Associated would make their own car aside from thundertiger.

Losi is owned by horizon, who also owns sportwerks. But the losi has nothing in common with the mayhem, or even with sportwerks new 1/8th buggy!

Just because Thunder tiger owns Associated, doesn't mean they will eventually meld as one.

Now, if in the process of selling out, if all of associateds designers were kicked to the curb, and thunder tigers designers were put in their place, yeah, they would be similar. Then it wouldn't make sense!

well guys tomorrow will be my first race with the jammin. and my first race that I have ever driven in. Hope all goes well. thanks micros for the buggy this should be allot of fun. I went with a 14t cb with a fioroni 4 shoe adj clutch with an STS .21B motor and STS pipe . The suspension is the same as micros had it . I figured I would try that before making any changes .
wish me luck

14t seems a little high t me, but you might have a big track.

ryan- if you can change the oil in the rear shocks. last time i went too soft and it was bottoming out on the jump faced making the rear end kick over the front. try putting 40 or 45 in the rear.

I might have some time to change out the oil, thanks for the tip.

about the 14tcb I cannot get a smaller bell to work, I dont know if its the brand or what but the 14t pushed over as hard as I can doesnt give me all that good of mesh with the spur. any smaller would be to loose. I am using a racers edge cb and the one peice ofna motor mount. I even used a screwdriver up thru the starter wheel slot to to pry and hold the engine over.
Micros said he used a 13t and the wear pattern on the spur looks good but I dont know how I can get it any closer than it is. I am taking it to work with me today I work in an auto shop and I may make the slots a little longer to get it where I want it. the track is actually kinda small so I really was hoping to run a 13t or even a 12t

use the jammin clutch bells, i'll bet they will fit. but dremel the slots in the chassis where the engine mount screws go through to give you a tighter spur mesh.

Hump pack.

If you're not using Li-Po's, I would suggest a high capacity pack especially if you are using digital servos. Carolina's R/C has one manufactured by Team Helotes, a nice 2600mah.

Here's a link:

Carolinas RC.com- 2600mah pack

no, you'll have to get a converter or something.

Good choice.

The "Converter" macnkitty was referring to is actually a voltage regulator. Some Li-Po packs provide around 7.4 volts of power, and this can easily fry most servos. The regulator safely drops the voltage down to 6.0. The great thing about Li-Po's are that they provide CONSISTENT voltage until they start to dump off. Instead of bouncing from 5 to 6 volts like a standard receiver pack, the Li-Po (in conjunction with the regulator) will sit at a constant 6.0 volts. This means less voltage spike in the electrical system and more consistent servo movement.

Whew......Hope I explained all that right!

Cradock Brakes on X1 CR

Has anyone got any pointers on how to set up the Cradock Anti Lock Brakes on the X1 CR?
I've put mine on with bear metal pads but the screws are too long and hits the spur gear on one side and the sit off ongle on both sides when the brakes are pulled on.
If you can send me some pics that would be cool as i really want to get these brakes working as i've heard they are the bomb!
Cheers
