Default Lots of Fun

I wrote a more detailed blurb in my other post from the other day- meanwhile, I figured I'd just mention, the DM-one is a blast! I picked it up after work last night and couldn't resist- I broke it in in the dark and had a blast with it.

THis is NOT intended to start a flame war- but my objective opinion was that the OFNA was built better with what seemed like better quality parts - the best evidence of that was how much play was in every link in the car, OUT OF THE BOX on the GT2. yeah- I know they all wear in... for the record, my mugen buggy has 8 gallons through it AT LEAST and still has LESS play throughout the chassis, than the brand spanking new GT2 I looked at, so sorry- I'm glad to have the OFNA over the Kyosho. The DM-one came out of the box just about perfect and everything is nice and snug.

GT class in general: this is clearly going to be a VERY fun class of racing. In my opinion its just a more robust, harder-to-break touring class and it's a BLAST to drive. I love my 8th scale pan 4wd, but GT is just easier and less headaches, at least so it would seem. I'm exited about the DM-one and I"m stoked about GT class- cant' wait to see it happening at the track!

Here is a pic of mine that I got a week ago. Man, I love this thing. Handles awsome, (thanks to DJ and Dave from Ofna) way better than I thought an offroad based car would. Looking forward to the upcoming race we have this weekend.

Default PF8 Body

These PF8 bodies look awesome. Sandfan85 looks like you got some track time already !! (noticed some board rash).
What is rivited around the exhaust exit hole in the body, could it be an exhaust deflector?

Default Aluminum chassis braces.

I have about 10 tanks in my DM-1 spec arr. I'm running a slightly modded sportwerks .26 with a 6.5mm carb insert and a jp4 pipe. Lightning quick and crazy fast fast up high. I noticed some chassis flex right at the clutch bell so I ran a brace from the front shock stay to the rear tower and all flex but a tiny bit is gone, The car handled great this way but I was wondering if anyone has tried the buggy chassis braces. I have a spare set from my old jammin but i didnt want to try them until I find out if the reduce steering or help it. Too much rigidity can be detrimental.
