I just recieved it a few minutes ago but the first thing I did was to compare it to the standard chassis. I kept my old chassis from last year for exactly this reason. I compared the lining up of the holes.
The width length and holes are all identical. So it should be a shoe.
I cannot comment on the wear rate or the type of aluminium under the anodising.
I will probably only use this chassis next year as my current one is still very good. I only bought it as the price was very good.
I also got the Dragon racing rear toe block set(of 3), The 22deg front c-hub, the cnc rear hub and I bought the Kyosho SP2 titanium driveshafts for the the front.
Looks good. I will only use it much later.


Jerseyboy,

Try to post your findings about the dragon racing chassis, for "almost personal" experience that chassis simply SUCKS and so the other parts due to aluminum bad quality, couple of guys in my country (chile) bought the chassises and rear hubs, the rear hubs wear fast and the chassis lasted just one day of practice and ended bent.

For me the best chassis are the original one, and the fioroni one (which im using right now) ...

cya,

Hey Tabushi, How is the wear and tear on that fioroni chassis? Same as the stock, or little tuffer?. And did it change the handling of the car any?


Thanks

Hi Tabushi
Hope baby and wife is doing well.
I bought the dragon FTE chassis for good price. If you say they are not good qaulity I will resell as I was only going to use next year as my chassis is still good.
I have the hubs front and rear but not using it as I have the original upgrades. The part I am very keen on using is the K SP2 titanium front universals. They are a perfect fit. front only. Normally the front is the ones that wear first.
For centre I have given up, I use dogbones. They last longest. I dont like slop.

Use chain lube on your center universals and they will last ALOT longer. I use the BelRay chain lube and it's worked great on all Universals/CVDs

a local guy at our track bought the dragon racing chassis and bent it in practice before the race!! I felt bad for him but you get what you pay for, Usually anyway.

I've tried chain lube, white lightning, grease, and all kinds of different stuff to get more life out of the outdrive cups. They all work a little but fact is they wear out quickly on this car. I think the big problem is the pins in the unis flatten very quickly and kill outdrive cups.

Hey guys I just picked up a used Jammin off of here. I see you guys talking aobut the center unis, and as it turns out the one I bought needs a new set. What steps should I take in making them last the longest possible?

Thanks Guys!!

David

Everyweek after I race I take the universals out and clean them with a carb cleaner and get them clean as possible, removing all the grease and dirt. I then heat them with a heat gun and shoot them with chain lube. I can't speak for longevity because I just switched back to the car after 5-6 months with an 8ight, but the chain lube trick is what all of the factory Jammin guys recommend.

Put the chain lube on the end of the Uni and in the outdrive cup. White lightining works best but takes a while to apply. It comes out as water and dries as a wax.
