Default JAMMIN OPTION PARTS

Offroad season is over here in Nebraska and I was wondering about new option parts available for the X1CR.
1) Are the shocks listed on the Jammin site the new ones for the X1CR(big bore and lengthened) or are the just the truggy shocks listed as also fitting the buggy????
2) I have heard rumors of an updated brake cam to address the sticking problem. Is this an upcoming option or just a rumor????

The shocks and the brakes are the two areas that I spent the most time working on during the summer and am looking forward to fixing them for good this winter. Otherwise the buggy is one if the toughest out there. Many times races seem become durability contests and in this area the jammin always seem to win.

Got my P7 on the way for my Jammin X-1. I've got a 9886 pipe to run on it,but does anybody have any better suggestions for a pipe and glow plugs for 30%? I was thinking maybe a JP-2 pipe running McCoy MC-9 or MC-59 plugs.

i run an RB-S5 with the JP-1 and MC-9 plugs with 30% with a 7 mill venturi. that seems to be a good setup for me on short tracks. i could actually run close to the same setup on a larger track just by putting in the 8 mill venturi and a higher clutchbell. this probably didn't help you...

as for the diff set-screw problem: do you think that by simply adding heavy duty thread locker, or some silicon glue to the set screw will stop the leaking?

also, i can't find 27.5 wt shock oil. do you think that i can combine half 30wt and half 25wt to the shock to achieve approximately a 27.5 wt oil? or will the two not mix together?

I've had soo many people over the years tell me it's okay to use threadlock on plastic,and EVERY time I tried it,it ends up melting the plastic. So I second au_Nightmare's advice.

melting the plastic? threadlocker doesn't get hot.

It is not heat that melts the plastic, its the chemical reaction. I've read plenty times don't use threadlocker on plastic so I've never done it and Hugh as first hand experience..

If you feel you need 1st hand experience go for it

i have finished building my kit and i am installing the servos now. you know how the kit comes with the servo horns with adapter for Futaba, JR, Airtronics, and Hitec? well, the adapter does not fit my hitec servo, which is brand new. or do the adapters need to be pressed on there pretty tightly? i don't want to damage my servo. also, i have noticed on some of my other cars that the servos make a humming sound when they are not moving. however, when you twitch the servo a bit, it stops. is this sound anything bad??


one last thing, can i mix 25wt shock oil and 30wt shock oil to get a 27.5wt oil? or does this not work?

Sometimes the adapters are pretty tight. If your using a high torque high speed servo, it should have a metal gear at the end to press it onto. The adapter will give before the servo will. My adapter gave the other night on my airtronics 94359 when someone decided to use my truck to slow down at the end of the straight away. Hope this helped.

i guess that makes sense. so the adapters act like another servo saver. thats cool.
what about my other question:

Yes you can mix the oils. Although to let you know Losi and trinity both make 27.5wt oils. The spline adaptor in my kit fit very tightly on the servo as well, actually one of them broke on me while I was trying to install it, but I had a spare lying around.
