I think I can skip the SNAKE chassis as I really think the OFNA is just as good.

Parts are coming in. Will have set up sheet done this weekend and posted.

Parts will be available through IGT Hobbies, or Darksidems.com.

Looking forward to running the Houston track for the Gulf Coast GP Nov 10/11 and see how much progress that I have made since the start of the year. Good group of racers from the Heart of America series will be there.....

Motor ideas? Ran my dm1 this weekend at Floyd Bennett with my off road dynamite .21 and was getting walked on the back straight. Everyone was running .21 on roads. My dynamite .21 kept up with high end off road motors on my losi. I'm thinking a nova kangaroo. What's everyone's thoughts

Try the Novarossi Bonito 7XLB.. I ran this motor in my DM1 and had no problems with the guys who ran onroad motors.. If you just have to have an onroad motor then the Kangaroo is a good choice and so is the Nova Kappo

Will you be just running at Floyd Bennett or other tracks?

I ran a Murnan worked on 3 port 21 when I was there, and did not give up anything to even Bill. He was running a stock XZ-B which has been fast at a lot of tracks we've run on.

My Murnan Roma 25 was too strong out of the corners, not enough grip, so just spent time spinning the tires. (have a new restrictor to try)

You might also look at the Murnan M21, similar power to the 35+21 but a little better fuel milage. (less torque than the 25 or 28's, but better speed for the "Cross Town") I did enjoy being able to go flat out through that ........

Blue 7 port motor. Don't gets wrong it wasn't a complete dog. I was running consultant 18.2-18.4's first time out in a competition setting. This was with a 15/19 pinion gears. I'm thinking the car needs more gear to get her going.


I will Prob only be running Floyd honestly. It's the only track on Long Island and I don't see me traveling.
