Default FYI

Hi everyone. Something funny happened to me tonight while I was working on my Jammin. I was building my shocks and was bummed that 2 of the 1mm thick plastic washers (for the seal pack) were missing. I have a really good system for building and I know I didn't lose them. So I built the front shocks with the parts I had. I won't have a motor for the car for awhile so I figured I'd get the rear shocks together somehow just to have a complete car... then I could fix it later. I grabbed a 1mm thick spacer from a GT (been out of RC for a year and there's still tons of GT stuff lying around LOL) and opened up the hole a bit. These spacers have a smaller O.D. so the seal will work (on the bench at least) but they allow more side pressure on the o-rings. I get the shocks all built and start to slide the first gater on... low and behold, there's something in the gater! Could it be? yes it is! I'ts the darn spacers! LOL

I need to be honest here. I've found missing parts in all sorts of places but never in a gater! I'm so mad at myself for not shaking out the gaters LOL. I will next time.

So, if you're new to building or you've built more RC cars than you can count (like me) - when you open the package with the shock gaters in it, remove them carefully and check for parts inside!

I thought you guys would get a laugh out of this.

stebog, I'm not sure if I want the Werks clutch or not... I'm hoping for some feedback on it here.

Sgt_Morrow, thanks for the shock oil tip. Those weights seem awful heavy for a rough track! Will the suspension rebound quick enough on choppy stuff?

Well, I build it with 35/30. After the 1st race night if it doesn't feel well planted I'll try your suggestion and let you know!

I finished third at the RC Pro Series race with my Sirio-powered Jammin' X-1!

I ran my normal setup (stock camber links) with the rear camber link moved down one, 2.6 swaybar up front, 2.5 in the rear, #54 pistons with 40 in the front and 27.5 in the back, 3-5-1 diff oil, and a whole lot of driving.

A Jammin' car also won the Sportsman class at the race as well, with Erik "Notch" Johnson at the wheel.

Really, WOW, top notch service by Ofna!............Only bad thing about that for Ofna is some scammers may come out from under rocks for free stuff.......But, cool for true customers who want to get to the track and race!.............Jim
