Mark,
I pitted for RV and he carved your DM1 around LH track like it was on rails!
Of course he is a wheel but the car looked great!
You do great work on these cars!!
I would have like to have seen him with an open motor in it!!!
Happy to haul it up there for him.
Cya soon.

Can that be possible? If I mount the diff backward, wouldn't it car go free spin because the 1-way of the 1st gear? (ie, car go backward?)

You pay for the parts and labor is on me. ........

Just have to run it as it is, no changes unless done by the "Approved Team".

I know it would have been better if I had been there, but work got in the way ......
MWS Racine might be my last stop for this year.........let me think about it or I will ship that over to you for the turn key service. You know me...I am the driver, I don't deal with service...LOL.

Sorry I cannot use your conversion and finish the race......but with those short 5 minutes run when the diff was fine, car is DAILED.........just as good as RV.

Glad to hear the set up worked when the diff was working.

Just let me know when you send the car and I can confirm where to send. I'm glad to provide the "Arrive and Drive" program.

Hey Mark,

Here is a pic of one of the bumpers that I purchased from you fitted to an
Ofna McClaren body. Great firm bumper!
I will post another pic of another fitted to an Alpha body when I have it completed. Might be a bit though as Wang "stole" my first rendition! lol.
Thanks for a great product!!!

Glad to hear that they worked. Kind of guessed the 2nd bumper made it to Ricks car.

I'm enjoying the heat at the Southwest Series race in Porter Texas. Looking forward to see if the changes I've made for this track work. If your in the area stop by and check out the new parts.

Mark, looking forward to meeting you and seeing your DM-1 at the TZGP!

I was up there today and the track is looking good!

Hey everyone. I've been checking out the DM1 Pro on Amain's site for quite some time now, but was a little put off to buy it being I can't seem to find spares for it. It's apparently compatible with other OFNA/ Jammin cars. Does anyone know which buggies/ truggies it's compatible with? Also, will the 1/8 DM1 Spec E's single speed center spool fit?
After reading through just about every post on her today, it seems like you guys have a fair amount of sources for parts. Is there a link thread for this car? Thank in advance.

How much were you looking at for the NIB one?

All those stupid small-diameter rally game tires I bought are freakin' useless (for a non-racer like me especially..)

I've been trying to sell my two 7th scale DM-1's for a while now, with no bites. And I'm not going to give them away. One is used, the other still unassembled in the box. So I guess - especially now that I know what tires are decent - I'm going to be keeping them for the long run. Just need to be sure I can buy clutch bells(the annoying Achilles heal of the DM-1 IMO, the rest of the car being awesome..) and 2-speed parts in the future... I guess CB's are fewer and further between these days. So if anybody knows of a good source, lemme' know. Nitrohouse is useless to me, as they want 30 bucks shipping for whatever you order, however small...
