Default Whats Everyone Think

What everyone's thoughts on this new truggy from Jammin.






New, larger-diameter shocks






Everything is more closely packaged


Old chassis vs new. Note the extension that protects the radio box







Longer chassis (lengthed behind the engine)
New Gearing (buggy size spurs)
New 16mm Shocks
Low Profile body
new Weight distribution in the chassis:
engine moved toward center line and foward
radio equipment box moved foward and closer to center line
center diff bum moved foward
molded special pat. pending center diff mount
Bigger Dia. wheels & Tires
Much lighter, 1-2 oz over the roar limit of 9 lbs
Still has great foward traction despite weight moved foward and longer
wheel base.
Same easy handling CRT, just faster, and lighter!

I think it needs to be where my X1 CRT is sitting right now.

Well, the guy that pre-ordered it (He works at HobbyTownUSA) said it costs about $200 more than the CRT currently does.

anyone take a good look at the rear chassis brace? totally lame, that thing is gonna have probs.... the rear brace barely comes to the back of the motor? most now tie into the center diff area. so theyre obviously thinking the motor mount is going to stiffen the chassis? ive broken motor mounts... i dont think itll work.
well see, but im not that impressed....[]

cool shocks tho! lol..

This is basically a 8ight-t. Except the 8ight-t is already out! I just noticed the chassis brace in the back as well!!

If the rest of the truck is as good as the shocks..........it will rock. We already know a pro can win with it.

These shocks are the best I have ever used, thank god the LST started this movement in suspension.
