My Jammin X1 conversion - 04.24.2009, 09:27 AM

I just finished my Jammin X1 CR conversion up. I picked up the roller cheap on ebay and sold the motor so it was even cheaper. The buggy was clean and pretty scrachless, just a couple on the bottom of the chassis. I took all the nitro stuff out and tossed it. I took a little time and cleaned everything up before I started.

I bought a RC-Monster CR mount for her and mounted that up. Very nice quality stuff there!! I also picked up a Tekno battery tray thats made for the Revo. It actually fit perfectly without me drilling more holes. I mounted the MMM esc behind my battery tray as well. I'm running the MMM 2650 combo on 3s for now.

I installed some AKA Gridirons, now I'm ready for the track, I'll be there this afternoon.

I took it out for a quick test run in the yard and WOW! I wish I would have gotten into 1/8 buggy way sooner!

Pics after my first run:

Nice Buggy!! I have done the same conversion.

I also picked up a used roller on ebay. The diff gears were well worn, so I changed then out for hot bodies spiral diffs with hardened internals, WORK WELL direct dropin. You need to cut 4mm off the end of the pinion, so it goes all the way into the centre universals.

The next thing I did was add a second front brace, since I had to remove the z brace for the battery tray. Had to drill two holes in the chassis and counter sink them.

For the battery tray I used a RCM custom tray that fits Losi LIPO hard packs. I used am inset kit for the t-maxx transmission that full force rc makes to secure the tray with 6 screws. I only had to drill and counter sink 2 holes; the other 4 were stock holes. The brass inserts work awesome. I have used them on my t-maxx tranny in the past.

For an esc I am using a Tekin R1 Pro mounted to the centre diff top plate. I also mounted a 40mm 12v fan (HOOKED DIRECT TO THE LIPO – 14.8v) mounted to the screws holes for the old front brakes. I has to slightly “oval” the mounting holes on the fan to get the holes to line up, but very easy to do. The fan blows about 6cfm onto the solder post of the R1 Pro.

The motor that I am using is the castle-neu -2200kv. Geared 46/19.

Since the new diffs are 4.3 ratio I had to gear up…..

For the centre diff I am also using Hot bobies internals and the kyosho 46t plastic spur.

I also splurged and am using nova-rc aluminum diff cups on all 3 diffs.

Everything runs awesome and real cool.

I will post some pics tonight…..I know my words are worth a thousand pictures.

Sounds great! I'd love some pics!

Thanks for the info on the diffs. I'll definitely keep it in mind.

Here is a link to my jammin.

The website is far from complete, but I have plans to get it finished.

Hello to RC-monster community,

I would like to thank all of the members who contribute to this forum, I have built a great buggy all based on your experience. I have added a few mods of my own, and have given these back to the community.

A special thanks to Mike for helping me choose the correct parts to do this project.

Again thanks.

I know this is an old post, but did you use the 45 x 145 battery tray?
Cheers :)
