These are the 23mm truggy adapters. I ran the 23mm adapters on my Revo all last year and didnt have any trouble. Savage had a good point now that I think about it and that is the possible steering loss.

thanks again for the feedback everyone. I think im gonna try out the nubs and see what they do. I might also borrow a set of crime fighters from a friend and see what those do as well.
Steve, I will stop by your shop next week on my lunchbreak.

Good move Packfan, I'd try somthing a bit smaller, because that's a fairly small track. Try the stock wheel/tire combo, of the HPI Nubz. The truggy looks great though, good luck with it!

No problem Wayne, any time. BTW, the Jammin buggy I bought from ya is still running strong!!!!!

Packfan- I would definately recommend narrowing that thing down! You wont get any steering out of it with that kind of width. Its just going to generally handle really weird being that wide. The dace adaptors would probably work well with narrowing, or Wabash wheels. Did you paint that body? It looks really good!

I just sold the wheels and tires in the for sale forum. I have a set of Wabash 40 series with the 1/2" offset and that really narrowed it down. I also have the stock Crime Fighters.

The body was painted by Full Throttle Racing.

Thanks for the help

We got MORE SNOW TONIGHT C'mon April!!!!

Ah, so you are the one who bought it.....nice. I drove alot of different buggies and that one was by far the best. I almost bought another one the other day but went with the truggy instead.

TKO Development

Check out the link above. These 23mm hubs keep the stock truggy width when you use 23mm wheels, and will bolt right on to the CRT.

Not that you would want to use 40 series, but.........

Ok dose any one have any input on this?, here is my original email to Jammin that has so far gone with no response...


I have just finished building my new CRT and have a
question about the front shocks.

In the instruction sheet it states 37.5mm for distance
on the front shocks. there is no way the front shocks
can be this long. I tried 30mm on the shocks and found
that if the lower mount is in the center hole on the
arm the droop will not be able to reach full
extention. also at 30mm the bottom spring retainer
will bottom aganst the shock bootie before the chasis
ever touches the ground.

I have seen your posted setup sheets claiming 26-29mm
of distance on the front shocks, also that you are
running in the upper row of holes in the front tower,
in this location the ammount of front suspention droop
would not be much at all.

Did i get an incorrect set of shock shafts with my kit
or is there something i am missing?

Dose any one else have this issue? or am i the only one...thanks

ETRacer: Your comments piqued my interest (I feel I'd seen them before, but forgot to go check it out when I got the chance. This time I did.

Allright, first I went out and measured everything. I also only show 30mm of length. I have the shocks in the stock upper middle hole, and have it on the inner hole on the bottom. I checked a little bit, and found that my droop screws aren't even functional right now (which i shall immediately fix)

I don't have a problem with the chassis hitting the ground (it does) before everything bottoms out, but I could see it being a possibiliity after I move the shock to the lower position.

I also checked the possibility of OFNA meaning it was 37.5mm from the bottom of the shock body to the mounting hole, but that definitely isn't the case.

However, I also don't think that longer shafts would work because the bodies aren't long enough to accomodate it, so I'd say ofna screwed up a bit.

What it means overall? if you want to run in the top mounting holes, then your droop screws will basically need to be tight enough to cause the arms to be level so you don't reach the end of shock travel. As for up travel, in my case, I don't think this will be a problem.

I doubt you got the wrong shafts, they must have the wrong numbers, or else the entire shock system is messed up.

Hope this helps, let us know what jammin says if they ever reply.

So in a nutshell, you all are thinking the shocks are to short in the front? if so by how much are you finding is lacking?

Default Shocks tooooo short??

I don't know about too short. With longer shocks, you'd have longer bodies, then you'd probably have a bottoming problem but not a droop problem. What it means for me in the short run is to go to the bottom row of holes, and be sure the droop screws contact and stop the travel rather than stressing the shock pistons.

Yeah, you could say a bit too short, probably wouldn't be a bad analysis, but I don't think it'll be a major problem.
