It looks way easy to clean. I like that the fuel tank is clipped in. I also like the small cups on the bottom side of the brake disc's. That's different, I can see where that would help in the braking consistency department. Looks like it's worth the wait. lol Qaiz, can you take some pics of the radio box and the internals.

Thanks Qaiz!!! Didn't realize they changed them that much. What's that battery you got there? Size, Specs, and so on...? I'm still looking for a center diff assembly from an X2 to try to put on my X1. Had no luck yet, they are still to new. lol Keep us posted on the success you have with your new truggy. How do you pronounce your RCU name?

No problem, at the moment got a 5 Cell 2500MaH Custom Energizer Pack. No idea about the dimensions, but gonna ditch it for a LiPo as soon as they come back in stock at the LHS...

Im racing it today again, lets see what happens. Still not comfortable with this engine.

@ Nathan

Its lighter than my buggy LOL.

Compared to the X1, MUCH lighter.

@ ecocav04

True, fits all RX Packs without a hassle . Always loved that about Jammin..

@ Supertib

XZ's got a lotta bang in it LOL. Its much smoother compared to the Picco, but Im gonna throw a .21 in there soon and run it. It ran like a dream with the JP B7T in it, so much more controllable.

No offical weight, but its MUCH MUCH MUCH lighter. I did manage to compare it to a TT ST1 Pro someone was running the other day, it feels MUCH lighter and MUCH easier to drive. The owner of the ST1's jumping on the X2 bandwagon soon .

Its got a kinda finesse to it, its extremely planted, yet needs that " Fine Tuning " in the corners, I love that, you go in at any speed, mess up, have time to correct your mistake, and come out looking like a hero .

@ Phat

Might be, how would I identify if its using Spring Steel . Is there any test or anything LOL..



Did the first batch of UpGrades today, picked up the new " Light Weight " Spur gear, and re-built the center diff. And changed the O Ring in the Shocks, were starting to wear for some absurd reason.

Will get pics up.

Well, I think spring steel from Hudy is a bronzeish gold color.

Well Hong Nor ( Jammin ) made good on their X2...

The O Rings in the Shocks of all the X2's that were in stock at the LHS were wearing abnormally fast. No idea why, they just were.

They sent us a complete new set . Damn good service IMO.

For now, Lightened Spur Gear, and the New Shock O Rings.

Also picked up the CNC radio tray posts and wing stay posts, will install them later tonighte.

Im absoloutely amazed by the brakes this thing has, insanely powerfull, but dosent lock up all 4. My damn buggy cant stop this well.!

Also made the switch to LiPo for the RX pack today, SO MUCH LIGHTER.!

Now only thing im confused is how much foam to use LOL, dont want it bouncing around all over.!

Well few pics for now..

New Spur







Old Spur





My brakes





And last, the O rings

They were COMPLETELY worn [X(]











Also they've moved off that horrible purple packaging LOL



Looks so much better now.!

The shafts are made from 4130 and will cost you a small fortune to replace when the time comes.

Retail on the F/R shafts is $75.00
Amain wants $61.99

Alright found it.

Looks to be good LOL


AISI 4130 is a low alloy steel containing molybdenum and chromium as strengthening agents. The carbon content is nominally 0.30% and with this relatively low carbon content the alloy is excellent from the fusion weldability standpoint. The alloy can be hardened by heat treatment

Typical applications for 4130 low alloy steel include. structural use such as aircraft engine mounts and welded tubing applications.

Physical Data : [top]


Density (lb / cu. in.) 0.283
Specific Gravity 7.8
Specific Heat (Btu/lb/Deg F - [32-212 Deg F]) 0.114
Melting Point (Deg F) 2610
Thermal Conductivity 22.3
Mean Coeff Thermal Expansion 7
Modulus of Elasticity Tension 29


Info off http://www.suppliersonline.com/prope.../4130.asp#Spec

Seems like its a good grade of metal to me...
