That's what I always thought. I was thinking maybe I was out of the loop!

.023 to .024 is what you should have to run 30%. I set my B7 at .026 durning breakin and ended up leaving it. The top end is just stupid!! but the power is very smooth kinda like running one of my older WS7's.

Guys,


As you may know i mounted the Jammin FTE and tomorrow i will throw it into a small local track just to test everything before the Mexican Nationals next week ... so far i have this questions :

1.- Front Sway Bar : Man this thing seems to be very weak and even with 5mm of preload it does nothing on the suspension . The rear works ok. Any tip on this ?, any aftermarket recommended sway bar set or just buy another Jammin rear sway bar and put it on the front ? (2.8mm right ?).

2.- Shocks : This big bore ones are great, but i have a question about the front shocks cause even when they feel smooth and all, i feel that it bottoms up on the rubber dust cover and im afraid that on big jumps it will destroy the rubber boot when the suspension works on full movement.

Any opinion on this issues ?,

Thanks a lot ...

.

when you rebuild your shocks, put a small piece of fuel tubing at the bottom of the shaft so if you bottom out, no harm will come to the seals.

I have read that the best attribute of the Jammin's suspension is the extra up travel that makes it so forgiving in the rough. I don't think it would be a good idea to take any of that travel away.

i don't mean a lot of fuel tubing, maybe just 1/8 of an inch or a little more.

the chassis will bottom out before the shocks are fully compressed, so he won't lose any performance.

Default First Track Test

Well, in the city im living in México a local hobby shop just built an offroad track so i took my Jammin FTE and STS .21T for the first track test prior to the Mexican Nationals next week (man, 10 hours in Bus ).

The track its already mounted but without internal divisions so people have to run very carefully, the divisions will be made next week prior to the first race. Not water on the track neither so a lot of dust flying around + local MT guys running without any order, anyway, i had fun and tested my equipment, im very happy with the results, specially about the STS .21T engine which never went over 205ºF and was flying ... enjoy :

- Video 1 : http://images.domino.org/d/55764-1/2...oConcha_01.wmv

- Video 2 : http://images.domino.org/d/56177-1/2...oConcha_02.wmv

- Video 3 : http://images.domino.org/d/56180-1/2...oConcha_03.wmv

- Video 4 (final "oops" included) : http://images.domino.org/d/56391-1/2...oConcha_04.wmv

BTW, not bad for stock tires

thanks for your help guys, i will asking you here a lot this week prior to the nats ...

BTW : All the videos are 55mb in average (480x360 pixels), so take you time to download them ...

cya !
