They all fall at about the same speed when dropped off a rooftop.

Aaron.. you have a good point.... I still say.. even in that list there is a car that isn't of great quality.. and there are many others that I'd add to the list of cars that don't have acceptional quality by comparison.

...and what's this mindless devotion you speak of? that is the first thing I think of when I've read your posts in the past.. now you are saying all cars are good.. weird...

This isn't terribly timely anymore, but you can find a showdown between the Kanai I, MBX-4, Thunder Tiger EBX-4 and OFNA 9.5. The Kyosho just barely edged out the Mugen, but all these cars, except the 9.5 are one or two versions behind the current incarnations...

I just finished building my first 1/8th scale buggy (777 sp1). What does everyone run for shock oil and droop? My home track is tight and technical with medium traction. Thanks for the help!!

found a few setups for you. the pavidis one is the hot setup right now. found these on the starting grid kyosho conference.

greg degani's

Got Back from Hemet car worked really well on Saterday, did lots of
testing with different set-ups. Finished third and almost won it but
crashed at the end..I had gotted lapped 7 minutes into the 15 minute
main by chad but i managed to put in fast laps in the last 7 minutes
and un-lapped myself and almost one but i blew it with 45 seconds
left..anyway Found a decent set-up for bumpy tracks. Diff
5000,7000,1000 Front oil 60wt 1.4 rear oil 35 wt 1.4 Front upper link
long, "High block""A" Middle steering hole on steering link. Shocks
inside on arm,inside on tower 14 mm ride hight clips front.
Rear end.. Shocks inside hole arm Second hole from inside on tower, Use
the upper shock holes on the tower. 3 degree toe in,2 degree antisquat.
Rear hubs back, use bottom hole hinge pin on hubs. 17 mm ride-hight
clips. Full travel front and rear(in the front yur travel is limited by
the arms hitting the chassie...and in the rear your travel is limited
by the shocks in the top holes in the tower) So no need to mess with
your droop screws..Hope that covers it.. Oh and i forgot That set-up is for like 80 degree weather, if you race
where it is really cold like 65 and below reduce your shock oil to like
50wt front and 25-30 rear

I agree about the Jammin...looks nice. In that same class I would suggest taking a look at the Mayhem RTR and the H7 PCR. All nice stuff.

As for why...quality. The only one that I cant say a whole lot about is the Jammin but from what I have heard they are quite nice. The Mayhem had some problems when 1st released but the people over at SportWerks listened to there customers and fixed all the known problems. Its a high feature buggy for a great price.

If you stuck with the Ofna,Mayhem or Jammin you will not make a bad choice(theres others also, people will chime in). My only other suggestion is to check out your LHS, see what they carry, that may help you make your decision.

Jammin is head and shoulders above the rest in the chassis department. The mayhem probably comes with the best sccessories (radio, servos, engine, etc...) But the Jammin chassis is tops.
