I have never seen or heard of one in the states yet. The pictures are almost 3 years old. Maybe Xray was testing the waters? The sway bar setup is very trick on the rear, looks factory (so does the front). Not having a 2 speed pretty much kills it here in the US. I hope Losi does something with the dirt oval car they have out now.

Has anyone added a 2 speed to that car yet?

I've been trying to locate 2-speeds that would require little to no modification. But the trannys that are out have different bearing sizes or wide mounting points. It's proving difficult. I could easily cut out a new chassis and use all Losi parts but I'm hoping to use the stock chassis.

We ran into the same thing when everyone found out how bad the stock GT transmission was. Ipanema came out with a conversion kit that required some mods but worked very well. Not long after that Kyosho finally released a shoe type tranny which pretty much fixed the problem.

I think Losi is probably waiting to see what Roar is going to do with the rules, then wait to see if Associated, Serpent, Xray, etc. are going to jump on the bandwagon.

Gentlemen,

Max Velocity Racing has the new ALUMINUM REAR UPPER PIN HOLDER for the OFNA DM-1 Spec. This part frequently melts due to its close proximity to the exhaust manifold. Not anymore. Parts are available and ready to ship. Check them out at www.maxvelocityracing.com

Cheers

Paul

If you have a .28 or really high horsepower engine I think they will be bomb proof. If your'e racing go with the new Kyosho transmission, it's a shoe type and much lighter!

The new transmission is less than $80.00 and the clutch bell you have will work (might need new gears, not bell itself). Way cheaper than a new engine!

Thanks.

That's good news Pato,
did you ever get a chance to check with the Alpha folks if the body would fit the DM one Pro (1/7 scale)?

Thanks
