RC How To:

OFNA DM-1 Spec / Convert Nitro to Brushless



Always being into off-road I was always thinking about doing on-road, but the cars as precise as they may be just never impressed me, they just seemed too small and to be honest, belt driven vehicles just don't appeal to me.


Then I was reading my favorite RC magazine and saw these GT cars that were converted buggies and 1/8 scale. I was immediately intrigued so I decided my next project would be one. Houston also has a really nice track at Mike's Hobby Shop so I would have a great place to drive it.


With no brushless options, I decided to go with the OFNA DM-1 Spec Pro kit and convert it.



Here are the parts I used:

Tekin RX8/T8 - 2650kv - 4030

Tekno DM-1 Conversion Kit

ACE DS1015 - Steering Servo

Hobbico CS-150 - Braking Servo

Racers Edge Pro Servo Horns

Futaba R603FS Rx

OFNA Throttle Linkage Kit



Here is the kit built with the nitro chassis:
