Default chassis

Jim raced at B&B and it was hooked up. Look on E-bay for the chassis it is only $69. Parts from Dinball (Hong Kong) are super cheap. I have ordered several parts from there and lit has never been more then $10 for shipping and the longest it took a part to get to my house is 9 days.

Jeff, ya, I have gotten stuff from Dinball in a pinch, but i'd rather buy from here if possible. If only for warranty purposes, etc. Just the fact that they even have a $170 retail for the chassis kinda chapps my shorts, ya know?

The car is still a good car though, so we'll have another go, not giving up on it yet!.....Eventually i'll get around to swapping out my two tanks and origional motor mounts, LOL..........Jim

Yeah, rcmart.com has that same chassis for $70! I order from them frequently since my orders tend to be large and the savings substantial. I also order a large amount from nitrohouse.com. They seem to have everything OFNA in stock that I need when I need it.

slrguy, ya, true, that's the only reason I haven't sold it, LOL......Nitrohouse is owned by Ofna, so they should have almost anything available. I still like the car alot, so we'll give it more time..........ttyl, Jim

when you push onto the front suspension , has the x1cr any tendency to open up toe-in or bump steer ????
I hate when a buggy does this, like the xb8...

regarding the front kingpins cracking problem
wouldn't it just help to put some silicone adhesive under the kingpin to secure it from shocks

Does anyone know if the Ofna Hyper 7 or any other 1/8 buggy has A-arms that will fit on the Jammin? My shop says they are on backorder.

Looks like the XB8 is a better handeling buggy out of the box. I'm having handeling isues with my Jammin.
