The Hong Nor/Jammin Uni's are made from a Spring Steel but tend to wear a bit.
This is due to the lightness of the uni's themselves but remember this buggy is built and designed to be light, fast and win races.
Mine ways 3620 grams fully fueled up to the carby and with a Li-Po receiver pack with regulator... that's pretty light i think.
With this will come some wear are tear that other heavier buggies wont get as soon, but they wont be as fast on the track or especially through corners.
I just bought a new one after racing mine for about 6 months.
I had gone through one chassis, a set of swing arms and a set of uni's buy then too.
You will always find someone who wants a second hand one to start off with and doesn't want to pay full price so it will be a good buggy for them to start out competitively.
It then gives you the opportunity to get everything new again and start from scratch.
Just my 2 cents.

Thumbs up

I have raced my Jammin X1CR FT for two weeks now. On just my second race with the car, I qualified second behind Chris Crews ( national Champ). I do have a question for all who will awnser, I know conditions are different, as far as diff fluid goes what would you guys suggest on a dry rutted track, that is only watered 3 times a day and does not blue groove.
I am new to the 1/8 scale world and have never ran one tell I got my Jammin.


Thanks for everybodys help.

Mike I think you meant 5 front 7 center and 2 rear.

Ike generally lighter diff fluids will make the car easier to drive in those conditions but...... I raced on a very dry dusty slick rough track last Sat with 5,7,3 and liked it allot and had no problems anywhere. I have been running that since I got the Jammin. At Rd1 of the RCP State race in IL, we raced on the same conditions on a different track and for the main I went down in diff fluids to try and keep the power on the ground and went to 4,5,2 and it was a big mistake for me. That should have worked well but did not. I lost my turn in which made it very easy for some one to go under me in the corners. The buggy was smoother every where else though and came out of the corners great. I qualified 2nd and should have finished that way but did not and wound up 4th. I think it comes down to driving style as well. I think if I ever tried it again in the Jammin it would be 3,5,2 or 3,5,1.

Hi Guys...

What do you mean by blue groove condition ? I've been playing buggy for almost more than a year now but am not used to buggy terrain terms.

Appreciate anyone for any enlightenment ! Thanks...

good morning professor

bad mika: when someone describes a track as being blue groove, they mean that the surface is very hard packed (almost like concrete) and in the driving line, a layer of rubber gets laid down from the tires and usually makes the dirt look blue. usually tons of traction and hard on tires too, especially soft compounds. hope this helps,

adam

i have found that the 4-7-2 diff oil setup works well if you want more steering.

We run a clay track that dusts up a bit so we have medium grip and it is a bit broken up due to just running our state titles 2 weekends ago.
i'm running 5/7/1 in my diffs and i have more steering than i can handle, no joke.
The heavier the oils the less one wheel will unload and same front to rear as you go on the power.
In theory you should go heavier oil in slippery conditions to keep the power spread across the wheels and not just unload on the inside front wheel and lose steering.
In world rally cars they even run torsen diffs which keep power spread to which ever wheel has the most traction so you should try to get a similar effect with oiled diffs.
My set up works well and it is the same as the state champs set up too.

Speaking of diff fluid, I have been filling my diffs so the fluid is level with the top of the cross pins for the small gears. Is this the right amount or not?

i think it needs to be a little more than that. fill it up about 97% full.
