also, do only ofna jammin hong nor bodies fit or do others from kyosho etc also fit this buggy?

Default New Jammin upgrades

For the Jammin riders who wants to know whats next for the X1.
Here is the latest upgrade. Wether its good or not I cant say yet. I suppose it must be if its an upgrade.

There is no reason to move from the X1 to any other. Its all available. If you like the pillowball suspension. Its here.
Enjoy!!

who would want to buy this? the adjustable arms work fine, and they're easier to use.

I agree. Why would I need this conversion. I am really thinking if I should get this. I just recently upgraded to cnc C-hub etc. If this makes you much quicker I might. I must say some people prefer the pillowball suspension. Ive been told that you get more steering.
I like the fact that HN does this. It means that the X1 riders will always have options to choose from. I mean why buy a Mugen when you can get the conversion. Its not expensive for the conversion.

The only issue I have with the X1 front is the steering arm plastic part that screws onto the knuckle tends to wear from the wheel.
Any of you have this problem?

do you mean the rod end Jerseyboy? if so, then yes, everybody has this problem to some degree. i stock up on rod ends and replace them whenever they are getting dangerously worn.

It wears the steering linkage because it has so much steering.

That conversion kit is not a conversion kit at all. Those are the parts off the new DM-1 Pro 1/7 scale on road car.

I have found that the rim only wears the tie rod end if you are using a rim made by a company other than OFNA...

Thats right. It seems the DM-1 is a X1 based onroad car. Many of the parts will be interchangeable.
I like that. Ithink I will get me a DM-1. Ilike it when I can interchange parts. So when you stock up its for all your cars. CR,CRT and DM-1.

If any of you guys try that keep us posted on how it works out. I always liked the pillow ball front ends.
