Nitro, excellent....coming together pretty good then huh? Check also to make sure your rear brake rotor doesn't rub the flywheel when the brakes are applied, since that one got me as well.

arghh, i'm not sure if those parts will be worth fitting, Ofna may or will soon make optional castor blocks i'm assuming....patience grasshopper, haha...............Jim

I am also going to be purchasing the rx battery and in the instruction manual it says that it takes a flat pack but read on here it takes a hump pack...which should i get for this beast.

Jim, thanks again, I did check the brake rotors cause I heard of that concern amongst some of the other owners, luckily mine doesnt rub....i also bought the jammin one piece engine mount. I never did like the stock one anyways...even on my hyper 7.....it seemed like it was always a fight to have the two mounts even up.

I couldn't get a flat pack to fit so I bought an OFNA 1400 mah hump pack.

Building my shocks today,treading the shock ends on to 28mm in the front and 37 mm in the rear. The first one went on great but the other three turn in about three turns and strip out. Plus I was short two rubber o-rings on top of it.

Default Is the Jammin manual available as pdf?

Can't seem to find it at www.jamminproducts.com.

BTW, you can't get to that web site without the www. This is an easy fix. Someone needs to tell the webmaster to make an entry in their dns server for jamminproducts.com (without the www).

I would think changing steering direction fast is a good thing. Maybe they are used to the hyper and sacker as they don't turn fast.

The X1 does have alot more steering then my Hyper 7 ever did, LOL...WAY more in fact.........But I like the steering, it always seems easier to find rear traction then to try and get a car to steer, imo.........Jim
