Where else can you get DM-1 parts besides Nitrohouse and ebay? Those are the only places I can find the pinions I need, but they both want 30 bucks shipping (to Germany) - and with NH I don't even know if they're in stock. I just want 16T, 17T, 20T, and 21T pinions.


Online part availability for this car is ridiculous.

If it's pinions you're after, Robinson Racing makes the best IMO.

I think they have a German distributor too.

Thanks. I guess this is a Hong Nor/Ofna/whatever thing. Jamara is the German distributor, and any contact with them they just say contact your local shop. Which is stupid as hell IMO. What, so the LHS can get around to ordering from abroad for me, adding delay to a process I could do myself - and do do myself with most other brands... Nothing against LHS's - but I mean, when I was back in the States and went to one, I asked how much for a new DM-1, he clicked on the computer, and I saw he was looking at the Tower website!! Then he offered me the price without the discount I would get ordering on my own.... Guess that's the Hong Nor modus operandi...

I've gone and ordered a couple of Kyosho Inferno GT2 bells with Evolva pinions - which allows me to run normal CB bearings.. So we'll see how that works out... Kyosho parts seem far easier to find, AND cheaper too...

If you are using the stock springs that you buy from OFNA the golds are 1.1 and the black ones are 1.0. So then if you want to use a lighter spring use the black ones.

Here's a pic of my DM1-Spec with a new PF8 body and Porsche 911 body. I've had the kit for about 2 months now and have managed to get the weight well under 3200 grams. (after quite a few mods) This thing was a tank when I first got it! Still trying to work out a few gremlins but it's continuing to get better. Dropped in a new powerplant! That Picco .28 had plenty of power but that carb was giving me fits! So in with the new...can't remember what it is. LOL! See you at the track!

Regards,

Speyederjedi
