Probably one of the dumbest questions to hit this forum...but

I just recently purchased a JAmmin CRT with BCE chassis and braces.

I know alot of newer things have came out since.

If this truggy still competitive or should i learn a little with it and move on?

I have been fairing decent through the winter with my electric offroad stuff. And i had ran 1/10th scale trucks a few years ago.

Just wondering if this truck is close in capabilities with some of the newer platforms.

Thanks

that truck will take you to the big show all day...........get the latest updated parts to make it even better. The truck is not outdated.

16mm super big bores: Fronts - OFN41001 / Rears - OFN41002 (More consistent handling over long runs,Higher speeds over bumps and ruts, More corner speed, More consistent jumping over jumps as well as jumps that are rutted up, Less likely to traction roll due to high traction, and rutted conditions)

updated rear hubs: OFN40540 (These are the updated, stronger version of the rear hubs, which have more material around the hinge pin, to handle the larger weight of the X1-CRT trucks)

updated radio box - OFN40541 (This is the new updated receiver box, that has a hump in the battery box lid so you can fit AA style battery packs in your vehicle)

updated servo saver: OFN40625 (This servo saver features the adjusment nut on the top of the assembly to allow for faster and easier adjustments, and more responsive steering)

lightened outdrive cups: Front and rear - OFN40596 / Center - OFN40605 (The lighter weight outdrive cups can be used to lower the rotational mass of the drive train to increase the acceleration of the buggy out of corners)

lightened spur: OFN40629 (This version is lightened to provide less rotating mass in the drive train and higher acceleration)

ring/pinions: OFN40626 (The gear set is made of a special material that greatly reduces tooth wear plus adding life and reliability. Special attention has been paid to the tooth shape and gear mesh too reduce friction. Recently completed testing by Jay Halsey and Chad Bradley found increased performance in speed and handling)

does anybody happen to remember the box-stock shock oil weights for the original X1CR? I would like to know stock diff oils too. Thanks

I am bringing my rig back to box stock setup so I can have a fresh start this coming season.

Thanks for the input

I bought this off a local guy. I have a couple bags full of parts. An there is another "spur gear" and other drivetrain parts in there.

I know it has some additonal braces and things also from BCE.

Any links to thread showing what the newer stuff looks like?

I know i dont have the big bores. I will probably run the truck as is for now until I get the hang of it.

Thanks for the input.

[QUOTE=adam lancia;4064627]DR ZAIRUS: Those are Mugen soft (blue) and medium (grey) springs. For oil I would start with 45 up front and 35 in the rear with the stock pistons and blue springs.QUOTE]

Thanks!! I suspect those are the springs too.

This weekend I tried the blue springs with 50 / 45 oils, as the track was a bit more rutted and bumpy. I must say the handling was excellent.

Maybe also because I changed my regular 3 shoe clutch for a Fioroni turbo slide, rear toe-in from 2'5 to 3 (more stability on gas on straights and exiting curves), anti-squat from 2 to 1 (takes bumps better on gas) and ackermann from middle to front hole (for tighter steering).

All of these changes made the car easier and faster to drive. A shame my fly wheel became lose...I guess the cone is worn out and needs replacing!!

It's soooo cool to finally begin to feel how changes afect the car's ahndling, especially when you get the result you where expecting!! hehehe
