There is a Jabber 2013 only raced once.
He is also selling a "original" Jabber 2011. Thats one of 26 Jabbers I built before I licenced it to Lightscale.

hi redbull,

the os16 kit is a nice to have option but not a must have. with the os16 you can achieve different behaviour through corners but it is not necessarily quicker.

antoine brunet is the best example. he runs the jabber with the standard fork off set.

i tested the os16 at the worlds warm up race and found the standard fork easier to drive.

by the way jabber won both categories we competed in, stock and superbike and we are proud about this result. attached find our promo flyer.

we used the warm up to become familiar with the track conditions and layout. we sorted out things that did not work and found other working very well.

we will post different recomended setups for the worlds track that siut either stock bike or super bike and cover different track conditions and styles of driving.

Hi Clark, thank you for your advise! If only the front break was included in the price for the 2011 version then I would have no doubt about what to buy :-/

hi redbull,

well i am sorry but to keep the price as low as possible we descided to offer the 2011 replica wwithout brake.

the brake is jus 55 euros extra and i can promise you you wwill save this 55 euros dduring half a season on tyres as the jabber bike is very gentle with wearing tyres.

hi redbull,

well this is a question your wallet heart and brain must answer

the brain and wallet says "buy the 11" cand the heart will tell you to buy the 13.

edi still does not find his 13 any faster than the 11, so performance can`t be the point.

if you are in love with the 3d carbon parts your heart will win

Jabber Disk Brake

This has been an amazing thread to read through! Congratulations to Edi and Clark for realizing such a work of art. I was so inspired I wanted to try my hand at one of these. It arrived yesterday, thanks Bruce! This is my 1st RC bike, and with no instructions and limited experience. I hope this is the appropriate place to ask for guidance.

I have assembled the front brake and there is a 1mm gap between the disk brake and the bolt heads. Is this normal? As the wheel free spins there is a good amount of disk wobble and it is catching and rubbing against the brake pads. Is this normal?

Thinking it wasn't, I removed the wheel hub and disk, I attempted to remove the spacers but they were seated pretty tightly so I gently tapped them with a punch and jewelers hammer to make sure they were evenly seated. When I again place the disk back on and tighten down the bolts, there is still a 1mm gap between the head of the nut and the disk. My gut tells me this should be flush, is it normal to shim the disk brake? If so from which side? Should the disk brake contact the pads at all if the brake is disengaged?

I have installed the Futaba s3156 as recommended and it fits beautifully in the printed housing. I screwed the pads in untill they came into contact with the housing everything is nice and snug but not over driven.

Thanks you!

sounds good!
The brakedisk is allowed to float, to make sure it centers itself.
After the first few batteries it should start to run free.
You can also check if the brake housing sits flush on the fork end.

Thanks for the response Gartenzwerg.

I'm glad you mentioned the fork end, I did sand that small nub down so it would sit flush, i thought i made a catestrophic mistake because now bolts are ever slightly catching the brake servo. I will start again in the morning with fresh wits.

Cheers
