Hi so i thought i would update anyone that was interested in the usa1 build that I mentioned a few months ago where i bought a very nice usa1 well it didn’t look nice when i got it because it was covered in thick fluff dust and anything else that would accumulate on it over the years while it was being stored. Anyway i have wanted one of these since day 1 of the release as it was that far out of my reach i never thought i would have one in my possession i was so pumped when I got it that I couldn’t quite believe it was mine. So I knew there was no body shell or body mounts with it but after viewing quite a lot of them that had different bodies I wasn’t bothered infact I wanted to fit the traxxas Bigfoot body at first because they look so good but in less than a week i had about 60% original usa1 body shell parts including the DA35 original decals the only part that isn’t original is the body shell its infact a TBG re popped body and its very good quality when I ordered the body i ordered one body shell but I received two I wonder why Thanks TBG that’s awesome. (I would go and check them out if theres anyone looking for a vintage body of any sort) the body mounts that i am going to use are part No: Ma303c and are off the new usa1/mad crusher and look the same and fit perfectly and they are thicker and stronger and the other part which I cannot find anywhere is the DA19 chrome bonnet carbs which would finish the look completely. So this is where i am upto with the restoration its had a complete strip down rebuilding the diffs from scratch and trying out the kyosho range of grease’s that range from 1000wt to a 30000wt I’ve put 5000wt in the rear 15000wt in the front and 15000wt in the centre they will be much better at handling the power of the GS21R it might even pop a wheelie 😁 and shimming them out to perfection and refitting the F &R gear boxs and suspension arms.If anyone has any questions or any information that i might like to know please message me. And i will post any further progress on this wicked 90s truck very soon. ✌️😎

Hi there. I am sorry if I haven’t replyed to any of your previous messages and i am new to the build threads and I don’t get notifications on my phone for some reason so i have to keep checking my threads for reply’s so don’t worry if you don’t get a reply straight away I will replay to you it’s just that i am really busy with other stuff at the moment ✌️😎. Yes i am about half way through the build it’s going very well.
I have the original engine which has a composite carb so i bought another gs21r engine that has the alloy carb but it wanted a rebuild

its all rebuilt and i am glad to say its got good compression and its ready to go i think its out of the kyosho landmax nitro so i will save the original engine and just use this one for the test drive.

Guess what i just found the missing part that I didn’t have the chrome carbs but its off the new usa1 and it will need modifing to fit like the original this one has more detailing than the original and should look just as good.

Another essential part that you will need for the usa1 mk1 is some bs25’s so you can fit a different engine and i am thinking of maybe a Os max 30vg these engine mounts did come with the usa1 mk1 to instalI the os max 21vf i think. I was lucky to find these engine mounts on ebay as they are so hard to find I really didn’t think they existed in 2022.

In this kit from standard there was a total of 4 ball bearing two in the torque conversion gear and two on the rear pinion gear and that was it that left 16 size 8x16x5mm bushes in total to replace with ball bearings I just replaced all 20 of them for new ones. I also fitted some 8x12x0.2mm shims to the drive axles two on the back on each side and three on the front on each side it just takes any unwanted side to side play out of the axles. Its coming along very nicely.

Sweet truck. I have always liked the USA 1. Thank you for sharing. I still love nitro. I get bored with my electric Rcs. Great to see other nitro.

Yes sadly Everett Jasmer passed away about 15years ago. I searched all four corners of the earth for that body set. Yes I will be seeing this build through to the end and even a first start up and a little running video.✌️😎
Jasmer is alive and well. He just sold USA-1 operations and trucks to James Trantino of Triple B Motorsports.

Hi there yes so I believe i wasn’t sure as someone told me. Yes i am glad he is alive and kicking. I bet his usa1 assets were worth a small fortune. I guess you are a big usa1 fan.

I think me and you got mistaken for a Everett M Jasmer that passed away in 2001 when the guy who owns the usa1 trucks is Everett W Jasmer how about that.👍🏻
