Thanks jfc_tech

I use to use 10-20-3 diff oils. I only recently changed to 7-10-3. I find with this change the truck turns better and overall handling is improved.
Shock oils I use 50F and 40 rear with blue springs. 3 deg rear plate.
If you using a 28 engine your setup will differ(hence why I moved away from 28's) 28 engine with my setup will make the front tyres baloon, thats why they recommend 20 for the centre.

The secret IMO is use a good 21 engine for your truggy, use a setup that you like on your buggy and just go slightly thicker with the centre diff oil.
ex My buggy I use 7-7-2, truggy 7-10-3, same engine in both.
Aslo I used the Jammin wheel extenders for the truggy. This wayI can run with GRP 40 profile rims and tyres. This made a big difference. I suggest first get the GRP wheels. I use the cubics. This should make you faster without any other changes.

"glad to here that jerseyboy.

i was accually looking to get that engine.how did u like it?how does it compare to the rest?did u run 30%?did u shim ?Let me kno!Thanks! "

wcairsoft3r
I use 25% sidewinder fuel. I am using the engine as I recieved it. I did not remove any shims.
In the race yesterday I was competing against a Losi with a Novarossi 21-7(awesome engine) and Mugen with RB WS7, GS Storm with RB WS7, Hyper 8 with JP 5port amongst the lot.
All I can say the power the Go develop is explosive. There when you need it. You wont want more power. I would say this engine would be too much for novice. Plenty bottom and smooth to the top end. More top end you will need.
The best part is the runtime. I run with a throttle curve of -35%. This just to prevent sliding the rear out of a turn when giving power.
Dont wait get it!

heffer,
i would recommend the X1 for several reasons.
first of all, it is the best value anywhere in a 1/8 buggy. the quality and finish of the parts are unparalleled by any company.
check the race record of the jammin, it is very respectable for its short time out so far, compared obviously to that of Mugen/Kyosho.
Jammin parts are going to be cheaper than Losi parts generally, and should be easier to find.
although the 8ight is a new innovative design and experts say that it handles well with the stock box setup, what happens when you want to change that setup? well, this is where the X1 shines. any adjustment you make to the X1 you will immediately notice. and unlike a 777, you can do well with a close to perfect setup with the X1.

Asking a question like that in this forum is just bound to get you a one sided answer... I chose the jammin' buggy because I had the truggy and it was easy to drive, work with, and with held a bunch of abuse... I can't speak for another company as I have never owned any other offroad stuff other then Jammin'.... I do know a couple things though from racing.... I have seen more losi 8ight's tear apart steering servos, and simply break then any other jammin' in the 7 monthes I have been racing.... I'm going to be looking at the Losi 8ight T, but not to buy, just to see how it will hold up against my truggy.... Personally from talking to other people, and seeing Losi's perform, I will probably never buy one.... There design is top notch, and they are ahead of the pack on a bunch of things, but from what I see they fall apart do to crappy parts.... I hope this helps, but I'll resort my final answer back to the old faithful response..

Go to your local Hobby Shop, or track, and see if someone will let you drive their buggy... And btw, as far as I know the MBX-5 isn't a bad buggy either, see if you can upgrade it to the MBX-5R, probably be cheaper.

what do you expect us to say, "you shouldn't buy the jammin"? i agree with you on the last part though, the MBX5 is still a very good racing rig, just upgrade to the "R" standards and you'll be set.

this isi soo true, but the main thing im looking for is how well one side argues about the buggy than the other. as for convertting my buggy, i would, but by the time i upgrade it and change out the worn parts, it will have costed more than getting a whole new buggy. and, i also plan on letting my cousin start off on 1/8 scale buggy with my mugen.

I'm not going to make this satement becuase of Heffer's question.
I have been racing my Jammin X1 CR and CRT for over a year now and all I can say these cars are the toughest out there. . Jammin just has reliability, good quality parts, car is easy to set-up and it performs out the box.
I am definitely sticking to what works for me.

BTW Pato I know you will like this one.

Here is a photo of the 2 youngest drivers at our track. The boy on the right is my son. He wanted to do one heat with my CRT.
Check the expression on his face.Makes you feel good to see that.

Default jp pipe

I've got a jp2 pipe on an os v-spec and wanna try out a jp3 pipe. The jp3 pipe really woke up the bottom end of my Nova rossi 421b. How will the jp3 effect the V-spec? Where will it move the power curve? And which way should i re-tune my engine? Richer maybe? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi rai13
I havent used a JP2 on a Vspec only a JP3. JP3 worked very well, excellent bottom and top. You always have to retune when using a different pipe in order to get the best response. I cannot tell you richer or leaner it depends on where you are and what fuel you using.
Bottom line the JP3 works.
