So close yet so far was put there because everybody knew about the car coming out long before it actually did. I believe that Adam Drake has already pulled down some big wins with the car.
Chad B. will certainly be a big help.

Hey guys,
I was running my Jammin yesterday at a new track and noticed that the chassis kept bottoming out upon landings after jumps. Even if I land the car on all fours I can hear the clunk of the chassis hitting the ground. I don't see the same problem with the Hyper 7s at our track so something is wrong with my setup.

Stock springs preloaded to arms level
30wt shock oil
Stock tires and rims
Shocks mounted to inner holes on tower

tnx

It's personal preference really.. Heavier oil in the front would give you stability.. Heavier rear would give you more steering..

Default New Jammin Brakes

Anybody have a picture of the new Jammin Brakes, and how to set them up? A guy at my track gave me some new disk brakes and said they were the new jammin ones. They are black with some fibers in them and about as thick as 3 or 4 of the metal brakes.

i want to achieve more steering on my jammin buggy. i notice that the steering plate has three positions for the steering rod, and the manual recommends the center hole. can i change to one of the outer holes to get more turn in? also, how much camber do you guys run in the front?

Anyone else having problems with the bottom shock mount screws stripping out and the grub screw not holding and the screw backing out. I tried using some of these http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXD368&P=0 and they work well don't strip or back out. The only problem is the material they are made of must be soft because they bend. Does anybody know if someone makes screw pins like these out of titanium.

I used the holes closest to center of the buggy...furthest from the front.
I typically ran about 2 degrees of camber.

I moved the steering links to front holes and noticed an increase in steering. I believe this is because it changes the ackermann angles to a more aggressive posistion. I really like it with the link in the front holes since I run on a very tight track.

Try not to meddle around with the ankleman's position.. Centre hole is just nice.. If you want more steering, shift the rear upper shock position to the outside (meaning more vertical).. It will give you more active steering.. The above is just my personal opinion.. Also shorten the wheelbase.. Car will be nimble and appropriate for short and technical track..

NEED HELP!

Can someone give me an expert opinion on differential oils? What is a good combination? What are the pros and cons of using heavy and light oil? I've been getting some mixed info and i have a hard time figuring out which one is true. Thanks guys
