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.


ok thanks for the info!

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..


good man!

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.


Im sure you can use the new ofna glow plugs and they will be just as good. I have some OS glow plugs but i have not used them yet.

I broke the motor in with an Ofna B4 hot glow plug and still have that plug and 2 new B4 glow plugs, but i decided to keep those in the tool box for the boat. It has a O.S. #7 medium/hot plug in the vertex .18 and running traxxas 33% nitro in it.

O.S. plugs are some of the best around also, but are also some of the most expensive, IMO.

I just really like the performance of the O'Donnell 99 med/cold plug with the 20% nitro for some reason, lol. I have 3 of those and 1 McCoy #8 med/cold glow plug in the tool box for the buggy.

Ya OS plugs are what they stock here at local store, glad they have them. McCoy are good and what i was recommended by Tim Bump!

By the way i checked where Yukon OK is and funny thing is my buggy from my build thread came from FAYETTEVILLE, AR , not to far from you! LOL.

Yeah, my local dealer also recommended the McCoy #8 med/cold plug, which has been around for a long time. But i personally think that the O'Donnell 99 med/cold plug is of better quality IMO. I guess it's all really about ones own personal preference, what they have available, whether it be online or at your local dealer and what performs best with there setup.

Really, lol. I used to have family that lived there, but they live in Amarillo, Texas now.

Well, after thrashing the chassis and bending both of the center drive dogs, i'll be rebuilding my LX-1 again. I was drifting it on road yesterday and smacked the sidewall of a tire on a parked car head on. Lol!

I'm upgrading to the LX-2 chassis, stone guards, fuel tank and body. The only unmodified original parts that will be left from my original LX-1 are the shocks and wing.

I'll keep this rebuild updated with pics as i start to get it put back together.

This picture shows the radio system mounted. The servo tray is the LX1 style, i like the steering servo laying on it's side vs the upright position the LX2 servo tray puts it in. All i had to do was mark, drill and counter sink 2 holes where the servo tray mounts to the chassis.

Well, the 2nd rebuild is done. Only thing left to add is the 16mm shocks and long shock ball end posts.

All the parts on this buggy except for the body, chassis, stone guards, fuel tank, radio box, rear chassis brace, center differential mounts, center drive dogs, brake pads, brake disks and air filter tube are off of my original LX1 buggy. The front bumper and rear mud guards are for the Ofna Buggy8 and i fabricated those to fit. The exhaust spring and aluminum mount are HPI brand that i also fabricated to fit this build.
