Glad to be joining the club!
The WS7II is a great motor. Got a RB Mods and it's crazy fast. Don't know about those Hitecs though. I've had 5 over a period of 3 months and all are dead. I finally went to Airtronics 94358's all around 6 months ago and haven't had a single problem since.

I've been using them for 5 years. When I first tried the digitals, I'd burn up a throttle servo (was using 5625 at that time) right away - I went through 3 of them then switched to an analog. After awhile I tried another digital for throttle and used it for a long time with no problems. I had the same 5925 on steering duty in my GT for 3 seasons with no problems and I always ran 5945's for steering in my buggies.

Pretty much everyone at my local haunt runs them and if you do smoke one, Hitec almost always fixes it for free!

I guess I've just had good luck so I stick with what I know ;-)

bigl, most have ditched the stock springs for sure, since some have broken after a few tanks. I'm running Mugen Black shoes and 1.0 springs....I may go to .9's because my Maxys Mega engine is a bit high strung on the bottom...and top...and middle, LOL...........Jim

The Mugen shoes/springs will fit the Jammin flywheel. About the Jammin flywheel, it's really, really overpriced. Nitrohouse.com wants about $35. I run a Sportwerks Mayhem flywheel for $10. It's exactly the same size (35mm) and works just as well. I've got 4 engines with premounted flywheels/clutch assemblies that can be swapped out at will. 3 flywheels at $35 a pop was just too mutch to swallow. This hobby (obsession!) is already expensive enough without wasting money needlessly.

I love my Jammin.

Nitrohouse.com. The front bumper is on a parts tree with part #40540 and is called Rear Upright.

Default parts

also try out rcmart.com. its in Hong kong but some prices are half as much. Shipping is about the same as Nitrohouse
example- one piece motor mount $29
captured hinge pins-$19
chassis-$69
I just bought a spur gear from Nitrohouse for $32 because the stock mounts loosened and caused it to strip.
Rcmart spur is like $14 same one. so some proces are good.

Default I got it!

Well, I picked up my Jammin' yesterday! I started the build last night and the quality seems top notch... everything is going together nicely and I'm very impressed with the kit.

I have 2 questions:

(1) what do you suggest for shock oils for a fairly rough track? I was thinking 40 - 35 ?

(2) has anyone used the WERKS power clutch? This seems like an awesome set up... any thoughts? I'm seriously considering buying one.

thanks

I bought the WERKS clutch because I had problems setting up for a Novarossi. I found the OFNA shim set at my LHS and all was well. Wound up not using the WERKS, if you're interested shoot me a PM.
