The settings in the Ofna manual are wrong. 1 Turn in the manual is 180 degrees and for us normal people it is 360. So 1 and 3/4. For the Ofna.

i see, interesting, thanks alot. I did some 100% throtle pulls with it for the first time, all i got to say WOW, this is one insane buggy for being stock, jesus christ, spins tires off the line, i have 2 bald tires almost.
I want to pick a nice pipe for it, unless the stock one is good, and id like to try the 2 speed they have, they have one at local store too.

turbo.. I would suggest a 6v pack for that you'll be much happier with your breaking and steering power/response.. plus.. no more buying AA's..

glad you like the car.. I drove one on sunday.. it drove great on a tight track.. good power

the purple thing was a protector.. maybe it fell off.. because the heat sink underneath of it is flat black..

Glad you like the Hyper 7 - I've sung it's praises for a long time. Where I race it has become the most popular 1/8th buggy. For the money, it's awesome.

My 6 year old Mugen MBX4RR still kicks major butt though! People can't believe that they're getting lapped by such an old car I suppose if I didn't buy such quality items in the first place, I wouldn't have to keep things till they got really old!!

the pipe it came with

ofna makes so many different styles of pipe and coulda chosen any of them to put in that kit i would bet they figured which was the best for you already

if not satified with it and trying a different pipe is something you really feel you gotta do try the new jammin pipe with the big reinforced stinger thats what im running right now and its performance is awesome and the price was really good too i think i paid $50 shipped
