looking good TrickLX1!

Any other updates?

I am posting my build thread shortly. Its started!


Well, i got a lot more done with my build today than i was planning to. The LX2 receiver box came this morning also, i think this build turned out awesome!!! I'm just waiting for the LX2 center diff assembly to arrive so i can also incorporate it's composite brake disks and dual brake bias adjusters to my LX1s new lay out.

The carbon servo tray is the LX1 style, i used the servo tray posts from the LX2 also and the entire radio assembly sits considerably lower than it did with the original LX1s radio setup.

I think my radio setup may even sit a bit lower than the radio system does in the "Ultra capable" thread. His build turned out pretty nice to though.

I chose to keep the old Ultra Comp style body VS going with the new school "race" style body of the LX2. Call me old school, but i like my custom painted Ultra Comp body.

Looking good!

So I also ordered some LX2 shocks, you think the ball ends need to be extended? I guess because the shock diameter is larger right?

Yes, you'll have to use the extended shock ball end posts from the LX2 with the 16mm shocks. The shock caps won't clear the shock towers without them.

I'm gonna be starting another build in a couple weeks after i pay out the rest of what i owe the guy for it.

It's not an Ofna, but it's still cool as hell to me. It's a 1/12th scale Nitro Hydroplane race boat. $40 bucks, i couldn't pass it up. It comes with a tool box and some misc. parts, complete radio system with servos, a Vertex .18 nitro water cooled motor that still has excellent compression, a quart of %33 Traxxas fuel and a #7 medium/cold O.S. short glow plug. It's white with black checkering graphics.

I know this is an Ofna RC forum, but i'll post a couple pics of it when i get it in my hands.

Well, i got the center differential reassembled with the fiberglass LX2 brake disks and i took the bias adjuster knobs from the LX2 linkage and installed them to the LX1s brake linkage arms. I can now have 3 different brake adjustment knobs. I can adjust the front and rear brakes separately with the 2 knobs i added or adjust them both at the same time with the original single adjustment knob the LX1 has.

Thanks! I'm ready to go see how it handles and performs on the track now. It should handle a lot better than it did before with the lowered radio system.

It's a force .28 with a black CNC KingHeadz aluminum cooling head and Jammin Jp-2 exhaust. I'm running VP Powermaster 20% nitro, 14% oil blend with an O'Donnell 99 med/cold glow plug and it runs great! It runs between 250 & 270, right where i want it.

I also took the pull start off and put a back plate on it and got myself a starter box, starting is pretty much effortless now.

Also, the only place i can find the O'Donnell 99 glow plugs now is on ebay. Amainhobbies bought out O'Donnell and once all the O'Donnell products are sold on ebay and other private retailers, O'Donnell products will be pretty much obsolete and very hard to find, if it all.

Oh, i also put silver aluminum clutch shoes with a 13t vented clutch bell and 51t spur gear. It hooks up hard off the line and pulls great through the mid-range!
