I know.. I'm a big fan of video too, and normally try to get some, but today I forgot the good camera, and only had my phone with me.. Nevertheless, I tried... BUT, driving and steering such a fast car with one hand and trying to film with the other wasn't working out so well...

Hey, I tried... Was below freezing too...

Hey Herrsavage, I am in the middle of watching the Daytona
500, I have 2011 Motorama RC Live running on the PC and
working on another Jammin SCX-2 1/8 nitro SC truck build.
Ha Ha Ha, all at the same time .
Have you decided which way you want to go with those
servo trays? If you still want the three armed 1/7 plastic
part, PM or e-mail me your mailing info. It is a government
holiday tomorrow here in the U.S., so I won't be able to
send it out until Tues..

So I'm out today with the DM-1, wanting to get a good tune on the Mach, and as it blasts down the strait something goes "ga-clunk.." and some metal bits roll down the pavement... I kept driving, and noticed something was up.. Went over and looked at a metal part laying on the ground. A diff cup!!!

Turns out the rear diff outdrive bearing grenaded - I mean disintegrated.. Nothing left...

Anyway, I think this kit I got had been sitting around in its box for at least three years in some old hobby shop.. So is this a typical problem with the DM-1, or was this just a fluke or old dried out crappy bearing?? Yeah, OK, I was drifting and doing some donuts a little bit, but nothing too crazy...
Have since replaced it and it's ready to go again.. Didn't seem like anything else was damaged...

Also, kind of wondering if the JP-4 pipe is all that great with the Mach.. It's cold though, and I haven't been able to mess with the tune much... Anybody know much about the JP-4?

Never seen this happen before.. Have blown that bearing in a Savage before from too much wheelying(I assumed..), but this car is pretty new.. No wheelies either..

I know yours is a bearing issue and not a diff issue, but I have been looking for an excuse to build some Frankenstein alloy diffs and this would have been it.

And does Avid have a kit for the DM-1? (I know, I know, that would be too easy)

Do people have diff issues with the DM-1?

I got the DM-1 instead of the IGT2, despite the latter being FAR FAR FAR more sensible re local parts support, price, availability, etc.., because I read everywhere how much better the quality was, and the IGT's have those c.rappy 2-speeds...

I am not having issues, even being brushless. I just want some alloy diffs. Can't speak for others though.

For IGT2 ever heard about IGW008 ? - it's direct fit / drop in option tranny that has Evolva type shoes instead of the original finger type tranny. It's bomb proof. And yes, we've seen DM1's blowing their rear diffs not making over the line in A finals. Never happened to GT2.

most Jammin parts will work on this car, look for parts from the X1CR.

I beat the crap of out a DM-1 spec for an entire summer, sold it here to a racer in ohio, he got it on a wednesday and entered it in a major event in ohio that weekend TQ'd and won the hour long main 2 summers ago and never changed a single part. There was most likely a batch of bad bearings in the system and they ended up in the cars. The DM-1 is just as good as all the others in parts quality.

I have been racing my DM1 Spec for two full seasons and have not had or heard of any other DM1 Spec racer experiencing reliability or failures with the differentials, transmission or any other drivetrain part. These cars have been solid performers.

Default Quick Pic Of Ken Block DM1

Need to figure out the wing paint and find some decals of DC shoes, Monster and Ken Block. This one goes back on the shelf at the local hobby shop to be sold as a Roller or RTR. Those windows are crystal clear...must be the flash reflection.

Nice car!!..

As I said, the two kits I bought had been sitting around in some Czech hobby-shop for easily three, maybe even four years.. So I never intended to suggest the DM-1 was flawed. Was just asking. And it seems like the answer is no, the DM-1 is not known to have diff issues.. I need to go check again, but a few minutes before it happened, I upped the brake bias a little on the radio to try to get more braking, so maybe I screwed something up.. Or maybe I had something else wrong in the linkage setup or something..
