................Combined several header pipes , tapped steel epoxy glued and screwed them togather then covered with rubber couplers. I would recommend that you use a 235mm body and 1/8 scale rear foams cut down to fit. Very fast with a LRP .28 my NitroTC-3 car is holding up quite well since I put the steel pinions and spur gears from the Ofna LD-1. But I believe that the CD-3 or Ld-1 is a better more bulletproof platform.

Any room left for a fuel tank after install the LRP big block?

BTW, I remember reading Jeffery Lin was running an Ofna prototype 1/10 with a top shock layout such as the DM-1.

Lil Bump im no one special,,,but i ran the 40th Rams race with jeffery lin and he was nice enough to remove the body from his "OFNA" car and believe when I say it is no GPX4....nothing like it.......the design was almost like kyosho/mugen mix very low upperdeck!! most of the suspension looked to b borrowed from RRR!!

He told me it was a prototype and it might be out in "09",,,,,car looked good at Rams, and he gave Burch all he could handle, and if im not mistaken he also TQ'd, but he made it clear that it was not a GPX4!

I wasn't at the Kamikaze race, but Jeffrey runs a RRR with a few parts either custom made or from other cars. For instance, the radio tray is custom built and uses a different fuel tank. He also uses a different clutch.

Basically, if you want a Jeffrey car, buy a RRR EVO WC and you are 95% of the way home.
