Is there optional caster blocks for the X1? I ran my new buggy this weekend for the first time and was very pleased with it. It is very durable and drove very good. I am running the stock setup but was looking for some more turn in and was wondering if they make 22 degree blocks for the jammin.

Haha!

Jim - OFNA doesn't make any optional caster blocks. Looking for more turn-in? Try some more toe-out.

Maybe you're just not punched enough? haha

sgt, a quote from a manufacturer when asked about sponsorships......"If you are getting calls from manufacturers, you'll be sponsored soon, if your calling them, you won't"..............unnamed at thier request.

I think anyone who can go to the nationals and make the A mains or who wins at the regional level may be able to get something going with a manufacturer.

If it matters, I still haven't heard from Ofna or Jammin, ...haha......, Jim

Car manufacturers and the big companies are extremely hard to get in with..

..it's best to start small!

Here's a pic of my Jammin and setup:
1. Spektrum radio
2. RB MODS WS7II w/8.5mm venturi running 30% White Lightning.
3. OFNA 063 pipe for super bottom end.
4. Mugen Aluminum clutch w/1.1 springs for a high stall and lots of "squirt" from corner to corner.
5. Front and center torsion diffs.
6. Craddock anti-lock brakes.
7. 2.5 deg rear toe.
8. 1.5 deg front toe.
9. 1 deg anti-squat.
10. Shocks: 50 wt front/40 wt rear with #53 drilled pistons.
11. Rear diff oil: 2k (this may change)
12. Aluminum stays for wing and radio tray.
13. CNC B blocks in the front.
14. 1 piece motor mount.
15. Screw type hinge pins.
16. Aluminum center diff support on order.
17. Front A arms upper hole.
18. Rear camber links bottom hole.

I used the new Hudy Off Road Setup kit to set the front/rear camber and front toe. This thing is incredibly powerful and planted. I can throw it wherever I want and still feel in control. The torsion diffs are a super upgrade. Lots of steering into and out of corners. The torsion diffs, 1 deg anti-squat and WS7II make sure I'm 1st out of the gate and 1st into the 1st turn. The front torsion diff really pulls the car out of the turns. The 1 deg anti-squat also helps on rough tracks allowing you to get through a section with lots of small bumps quicker.
The setup is still a work in progress. But this is the fastest setup I've run to date.

arghh, those manufacturers have bigger teams, but the Ofna and Jammin buggies are up top too anyhow.......Besides, if it works for you, who cares what some guy who gets paid to race accomplishes with it, . I'd be more interested in whats happening at your local track and what does well or looks like it works well there?


Sgt, I used the stock body....for now, but we're working on some things.............I did mask off the scoop as a straight line to make the side windows bigger though, LOL..................Jim

slrguy...sweet ride....I just wish I had some airbrush skills....lol....hell I would settle for just having an airbrush to learn on!!!!

But seriously slrguy that is a tight buggy! I wish I would have gone with an RB WS7II instead of the Ofna 8 port race Hyper....oh well...its not like I cant go out and buy one...oh wait....well that is if I could budget it in.......

On a side note....this is probably a stupid question but how do you know when a clutch spring has gone out? Does the engine just stall, or does the car stay in constant forward motion...what are the tell tale signs its time to ditch those wimpy Ofna springs and go with the mugen ones.....And a side note to the side note has anyone tried the Werks Racing Clutch? And if so what pads are you using?

yeahh... that's the point. in our local track, for the first time i'd ever compete in racing and the only one x1cr among about 80 participant including hyper 7, kyosho, mugen, sacker, xb8 and ebs-3, i got top three in c-main. everybody is really impressed about this cars performance, very easy to drive and i can beat many old timer drivers easilly..
