The original crt.5 came with a set of both pin and hex wheels. The pins did require just the right washer/spacer or the wheel would drag on the bearing. The real problem with the pins was after some time those wheels had lots of play that the hexes did not have. In the end I swapped all my tires on to hex wheels.

Default Up and Running!

Got the SCRT built, looks like a nice kit...BUT...OFNA, please revise the front bumper on this thing. Talk about made of glass, thats ridiculous for a SC truck thats gonna be banging fenders. How I'm I going to punt the Slash's off the track with a piece like that!

Thinking about trying to make the Hyper bumper fit...it's that bad.

You mean ACKERMANN? Actually the original term mentioned in the original post "drag link" is not correct.

I believe, servo saver connecting plate or servo saver rack (OFN40895) would be more correct. So -

It's actually not an ackerman plate because it doesn't adjust the ackerman. That is done on the bellcranks on the jammin. You could call it a servo saver connecting plate, but it's actually a drag link. Doesn't really matter what you call it. It's a weak point in the steering.

Shark413--the only thing I would watch for is stripping out the wheels using the pin directly to the wheel method...The Jammin will have more power then an SC10, and the SC10 wheels are prone to wheel stripping with high power brushless systems installed....Just a heads up for ya...
T3GT, good point, fortunately Proline did their homework and the slots are a bit beefier on the bead loc wheels. Still vehicle specific wheels would obviously be the best, but until then I just wanted to try different tires on the SCTRC10. Actually the stock wheels/tires have some advantages, more scale looking, lighter overall weight, lower CG, less unsprung weight, etc. The only minus is the lack of selection (treads/compounds).

GO-RIDE, +1. You definetly need to be on your toes when using pins, over tigthen them and they bind, not tight enough and you could strip out the slot. One other thing, the SC10 uses 1/16 pins and the Jammin uses 2mm pins. 1/16 works out to about 1.6mm so the slot in the SC10 wheel is slightly undersized. I will look at it later and see how snug the Jammin pins fit and decide if I need to enlarge the slots.

Default Bumper

As I mentioned in an earlier post the first day out on the track I had a little accident and broke the front upper bumper support. It's been kinda slow at work this week so I figured while I was waiting for a replacement I could see if I could throw something together using some spares I had laying around. I had previously used a Slash front bumper on my 1/8 buggy SC conversion, it is pretty easy to adapt to other trucks, it is pretty tough and I had an extra one. So I took some scrap aluminum I had left over from some skids I made and put together a new front bumper for my Jammin using the Slash bumper. As a bonus I got a front skid plate as well. It took me a hour or so to make the parts and it bolted on without issue. The Slash bumper is very solid and has a built in shock absorber, unfortunetly it sits about 1/2 too high in relation to the body, oh well.


Here are the parts required, Slash bumper and some 6061 aluminum scrap.

Here it is with the body on.

Default Size

Someone was asking about the relative size of the Jammin. Well I don't own a Slash but I do have an SC10 so here they are.


Jammin SCTRC10 and Associated SC10
