I couldn't get on their (Jammin)site either today.

You will see most of the set ups on there run 5-7-2 diff oils in the buggy.
I am no genius to this either but that is what I have been running and it seems fine. stock is 3-5-1.


I just got my CRT .5w/ O.S .12 TG today!! Cant wait to get home and put it together.

Is that Greg Antill's old truggy? If so I'm the guy who you let drive it after the race was over.

I just bought the X1 and pretty new to nitro. I don't understand the different diff fluid combinations, and need something to start with.

Thanks
No problems for me going to that site....

I am still playing around looking for the ideal shock oil setup.
I tried red springs 60F 40R work well but not so good on very rutted and loose tracks.

Now using 50F 40 rear. Red springs.
Any of you guys tried other setups?

45fr/35rr works well on rutted tracks. The lighter oil also improves traction. The red springs should be fine with this oil combination. This is also one of the combinations that Taylor James likes.

Check out the setup sheets on the Jammin' site

Hi Jerseyboy,
I am racing on a rutty, loose track and have found that this setup works rather well.

Big bore shocks
45W Front - 35W Rear
With Mugen Grey springs (I think they are identical to the HN Yellow springs)

Cheers...........Dave

Thanks Guys
I am using 50F red spring and 40R yellow spring. Still just not getting it down like I want.
I'll try 45-35 with red and then yellow.
The Mugen greys according to Chad is in between Jammin red and yellow. He also specifies that the Mugen grey has a more constant spring rate than the red.

So being new to all this, what is suggested to purchase as tuning parts?

What spring rates (or what manufacturer / color)?
Diff Oils?
Camber blocks or toe plates?

Etc.


I'm not going to buy everything, so the top suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm going to probably race on one track mainly, but travel to a couple others for a series race.

My setup:

Front
B-block
Shock length 102mm
50wt Ofna oil
#54 pistons.
Inside on the arm, middle on the tower.
Upper arm middle, ackerman middle hole.
2 degrees negative camber, slight toe-out.
Stock sway-bar

Rear
3.5 degree toe block, 1 degree anti-squat
Shock length 125 mm
40wt ofna
#54 pistons
Shocks middle on the tower, inside on the arm
Camber link outside hole on hub, drilled in the tower (more on this later)
2 degrees negative camber
Stock sway-bar

Diff oils f/c/r 5K/7K/2K

First off, you need to get your diffs right. Keep 5K in the front, put 7K Center, and 2K in the rear. If you go higher in the rear, you'll get more on-power steering but a "looser" car when giving throttle.. Also, try to go with the 2.5 rear toe-in to get more steering in general.
