Yes, it is the RTR and stock paint job. I was kinda wanting the blue and orange, but I like this color scheme too. I will get some chassis pic's up later.

Default x1 cr

Aaron I see that Adam is running 5,10,5 in his diffs. I am running 5,7,1 and have some push going into the corners. What does Adam feel the 5,10,5 does better? Any input?

5-10-5 should help the car launch out of the corners without the diffs spinning up the inside tires as much.

You're having steering problems? Oh man! Have you tired 2 in the rear yet?

no only ran 3 in the rear. But have raced it only once and it had more push then my Mugen. Also was thinking of going to 3000 in the rear and keep the front and center the same. Also was wondering what everyone runs the set srews for the anti roll bars at. I had them real loose and just adjusted them to make contact with the bar.

3000 should help over 1000. I'm running my set screws fairly tight.

fuse01, think of diff oil like this......The heavier the oil is, the more it will act like a posi, which means less unloading of the lighter tire(usually inside, except in the rough).

For the center diff, it works the same, but tries to send power to the DIFF with the least amount of loading, or weight.

I find that on more slippery tracks lighter oil is easier to drive.....On rough tracks heavier oil is easier to drive(helps keep your momentum). Heavier center diff usually means faster acceleration, but at the loss of rear traction under power. But if my car feels like it doesn't go when the engine winds up, or is sluggish, heavier diff oil is needed.

Some racers change rear diff fluid for a loose feeling buggy, I prefer to change the center diff fluid to correct a loose feel(lighter).

....Just a quick summary, Jim

Default Jammin

I have the most luck with the Mugen 1.0 springs. Well just raced the car for the second time and again I had tank issues. If you recall the first race my tank split on the second run. Called Ofna and they sent the new tank no charge and it is the new plastic. the tank worked great, but now the swival top leaks air and had to run the car rich all day because WOT the motor leaned and died. I took the cap off the old tank and it did the same thing two for two. Anyway Ofna get rid of the swival top it is not needed, too many seals needed. Now I will try and get sealer and try to fix it (hope it works because I doubt they will send another tank). Also my front right hinge pin that holds the c-hub to the A-arm looses the c-clip EVERY run. I put show goo on all of them to try and stop it but it still came off.
O.K. thats it for negative. Now I must say I am deffinetly faster with the Jammin then my MBX5. The car changes direction much faster then the MBX5. My best ever average lap speed with the Mugen was only 14.0 mph (average was 12-13mph) Today my average lap speed with the Jammin was 15.0. Finished second over all which is also my best finish. I just need to take care of the tank and the hinge pin. These are the only two issues I have had with the car after two race days.

Sofast - I'm using the Hyper 7 1.1's

The buggy jumps GREAT. You need a 4x1 or 3x2 hump pack.
