NOTE: if you do decide to modify the shock tower you will also need to machine the rear shock tower mount to allow the rear camber links room to pivot, A dremel did the trick for me.

Good luck guys......Dave
Post some pics, so us locals can learn some.

I have not heard the explanation why this seems to work better.
less camber gain when compressed keeping the rear end more steady and consistant during turn.

"blanks596" I know what you mean. this buggy is a bit on the heavy side. wish someone could measure the weight of the lightened jammin chassis vs. the fioroni lightened chassis

Thanks Paul
One would think more camber gain when accelerating in a turn is better.
Definitely something to try out.

buggies min weight is 3200g. I haven't weighed any buggies on a scale but just going off the not so reliable curl test The eight seems to be lighter

During the last 2007 southamerican championship in Chile, the 2 8ights that participated on the event had to receive extra weigts to get the minimum ... Jammins were the higher weight buggies, but the fastest on track

just looking for a bit more agility and acceleration that weight loss could bring about without sacrificing too much traction

OK Crocket this is what I did last nite.

Did some research:
With the no7 hole it increases the upper rear camber link. This has a huge effect on rollcentre. The longer the link the more the car will roll in mid corner giving better stability and traction.
On loose tracks with low traction this mod will give better traction in the turns.

Talking Settings

Try also laying the tops of the shocks in to the inside hole.
I ran mine on the weekend and it was the fastest it has ever felt.
I also tightened the sway bars to about 3mm front and 7mm rear.
It got me into an A-Main final that i thought i wouldn't get into.

Also here is a picture of my CRT.5 finished.
Man does it haul ass with the OS TZ.12 in it.
I jumped a 9 metre tripple on the weekend that some buggies were struggling to do!

Talking Nice Ride!

Thanks Jerseyboy!
Man does it fly!
We went to Rockhampton last weekend for the Rocky Cup and I cleared the 9 metre tripple with it during the lunch break.
Everyone was cheering as they hadn't seen one going before and expected it to be slower than a 1/10th.
It will keep up with a 1/8th scale on a good track no problems!
If you guys are die hard Jammin Fans then I suggest you get one of these and put a ball tearing .12 motor into it.
I guarantee you won't be dissapointed!
I'm going to get a second one and put a brushless motor into it too.

As for the nuts for the hinge pins i'm sure they are 4mm on the inside and 3mm on the outsides.

has anyone tried the new option part pinion and ring gear set? What is it suposed to help and does it? Seems like a fairly steep price tag, but if it works maybe it's worth it. Thanks guys.
