all Jammin and Ofna is through nitro house, they are the importer in the states from my understanding, they will have everything needed for jammin/ofna :http://www.nitrohouse.com/

I checked Amain and don't see the Jammin there unfortunately. I guess they must not sell it in the states. That's too bad, I liked that platform a lot.

ORIGINAL: HerrSavage

The only one of those I would get would be the Jammin X2. The rest are outdated bashers. Don't know about the MBX5T - how available parts are, etc...

The Jammin X2 is a relatively current model, unlike all the rest.. I believe Amain had the RTR version really cheap - like €450...(no starterbox, c.rap radio, c.rap servos, etc...) Here anyway though the Jammin RTR comes with an SH 28 LRP Spec 3 twin.., so you could later put a closed backplate on it($14 or something... Part # DYN0960), get a sterterbox, and have the same engine basically that is in the Losi... (I think in the States though the Jammin RTR might come with a Force 28...) Just FYI... I bought a Losi 454 new on ebay for $105, put in the backplate, and now have basically the same engine as is in the 8T 2.0 - for $120... I.e., if you get a more gas-guzzling .28, you can get it much cheaper than a 21...

The 8T 2.0 is an awesome package.. It's pricey, but you get everything all at once... On the other hand, it's RTR. The other route, with say, the Tamiya, you get to build it all up yourself... Toss-up what you want..

I still think with patience and luck you can find a good roller deal.. Just have to be careful - and yeah, patient and a bit lucky... The Losi is always there, and is always a good complete package deal too..



EDIT - Sorry.. Hot Bodies D8T.. THAT would be a good choice too IMO....

<span font-size:="" style=""><span sans="" comic="" font-family:="" style="">Hey there RD. If you're looking for hex wrenches, you can try these:

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...x-Driver-Set-6

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Black-Handles

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...n-Wrench-Set-4

Hope this helps. [img][/img]</span></span>
Ah, once again I owe you. Are all the ones listed good wrenches? I was told the ones form Lowes that I was using were too soft and were prone to breaking and stripping hexes. (Which they did)

Thanks Wolf!

<span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Comic Sans MS;">You're very welcome RD . I can vouch for the Align and OFNA. However, I've heard many good things about JR products and I know that VP-Pro makes quality tires, and I don't believe that their tools will be any different. Maybe some other RCU members will chime in with their choices of tools and help to broaden, or reduce , your options.

I'm going to post this on here as well as my thread on RCTech because I've been getting good responses both places...


I got about half of my parts from my LHS Saturday, but I'm ordering the rest from Amain to save money.

Will an O'Donnell red (hot) plug work well with my Axial? It's suppose to be good for up to 20% nitro which is what I'm running, so I think I'm okay. But I don't want to have to add shims so I figured I'd ask.

And, will a 'D' Battery glow igniter cause me any issues? I like the idea of being able to put in a new battery in 30 seconds instead of waiting 4+ hours for it to charge.

Oh, and will lower oil content in my nitro cause me any problems? I remember brands like Traxxas and Blue Thunder causing the OWBs to slip, so I went with White Lightning (my first choice would by Bryons if they had it in stock), and it only has 8% oil content. I don't remember this being an issue but I figured I'd ask.

Thanks for the help once again, I figured I'd ask before I spent to make sure I went with the right option.
