Default just bought a used truggy

hey everyone, I'm pretty much a noob with truggies, i've owned a savage xss for a year now so i'm pretty familiar with this hobby. I posted this thread to ask you guys a few questions about the ofna jammin X1CRT.

1. is it one of the better truggies in the market?

2. i don't plan to race with it, just drive it around and hit jumps, what should i do to set it up for this?

3. are the tire/wheel options the same as a savage? (standard MT size)

4. what are it's weaknesses if any?

5. what are the things that you guys like about it?


thanks for your time and help.

I just picked up a used Jammin CRT Pro a week ago. It is considered a top contender alongside Mugen, Kyosho, etc. As a matter of fact the Jammin CRT owns 5/6 national titles (2 Roar, 3 RC Pro). So it has the pedigree for sure.

The CRT uses 17mm truggy wheels and Truggy (aka Standard MT) tires. The tires are bigger then buggy tires, but considerably smaller then your Savage tires. The X SS does have 17mm axles though, so you should be able to interchange wheels and tires between the two. The larger tires will effect the CRTs performance and might rub if the offset on the wheels isn't right.

Things are supposed to be solid. I couldn't find any inherent weaknesses to speak of after doing my research.

I think you made a great decision! Parts are readily available too, which is a plus.

hey dale! it's nice to see a familiar face. thanks for the response. i'm glad to hear the good things about this truggy. i just checked out the parts selection and wow, there are alot of parts but man they are pricey! the chassis plate alone costs 1/3 of what i paid for the truggy! i really hope that it's tough enough to handle the driving i will throw at it. ofcourse i wouldn't drive it as hard as i do my savy cause we all know that truck can take some real abuse

You will be in for a pleasant surprise, that truggy will take a LOT of abuse. Those things are rock solid.

I hear that the chassis braces are a must have, other than that, I have heard they are near indestructable.

the CRT's are tank, i own a losi 8ight T RTR, the 8ight T being one of the lighter truggies isn't as tanky as the CRT in the chassis braces, shock towers and upper a arms, but man the 8ight takes a beating, i regally launch it off BMX jumps at WOT, easily get's 15 feet of air, about 50-60 feet in length to flat landings with a relatively soft suspension setup, and from what i hear the CRT is tankier again, i think it will be fine for bashing.

Default RE: just bought a used truggy

thanks ttoks, i wish there were BMX parks around my area. when i go out, i usualy look for natural ramps and so far i've only found a good 5 footer ramp. I would guess that this would be no issue for the CRT

to badaml, i thought that the CRT has chassis braces already. are you talking about an upgrade to the stock ones?

BTW how long has the CRT been around? this is the first time i've heard of them, and i've known about truggies ever since i've been in this hobby.

i see, for the pics i saw on ebay i can guess that it's not the pro kit because most of the parts are plastic.
