I believe it is the same length as the DM1 Spec 1/8th or the short Kyosho. Watched it in person this weekend, and it looks good.

Can someone confirm this? As I want to have my painter start on an alpha r1 body but I need to know if it fits first

All the bodies will work on most of all of the cars...none are an exact match. You should cut your body out on the car before you paint anyway.....just makes it easier to fit the body right.

On Alpha RC :

R1 : For long chassis 1/7 like Ofna DM ONE and Kyosho GT2

R2 and R3 : For short chassis 1/8.

R2 is near Protoform PF8 like, but faster as is lower and has a great rear downforce. R3 is faster and a little more "loose", great for high speed open turns and flowing tracks.

DM1-Spec owner....is there any benefit to have double brakes? If so...2 disk double brake in front of the 2-speed gear box or like some truggy with 1 front 1 back at the 2-speed...?

The Dm1 Spec I have has 2 disc brake system on the front and I am wondering I should add one at the back....thanks.

When I had my DM-1 I changed it to a front rear set-up (1 in front of the 2 speed and 1 in the back) so I could adjust how I control braking front to rear. I liked it much better that way because it didn't upset the stance of the car as much under braking. IMO going to a front\rear brake setup is better.

Regards,

Daniel

I agree the front rear setup works the best.But use the upgraded pads and rotors.

Ok, first since the 2 speed uses a solid center shaft it doesn't matter if you have both brakes up front or 1 and 1. The only thing that really matters is how fast the heat buildup can be disipated by them. So it is much easier to cool them with one in front and one rear. Second true brake vias can't be adjusted like in a buggy with a center diff but you can simulate the effect. By having one brake engage first then the other. To do this you need to have two brake levers. I use RC8 brake disks and RC8 brake linkages. With this setup you can have the rear lock earlier or later or any way you want. The disks are excellent and last a long time plus their compund grabs even with some fuel on them. Another Plus is that they have an inner aluminum center that dissipates a lot of heat. They are not direct fit but with some dremel work you will have more than enough brakes to lock them up at will. I have even had to remove brakes because they work soo good.
