Hi guys! Let try to plugin the main ingredient, the prices of the kit

Which among the list below would you still choose and why?

- Ho Bao (OFNA) Hyper ST $600
- Hong Nor (Jammin) X1CRT $540
- Tamiya TNX 5.2R $470
- Tamiya Nitrage $480

And also with the fact that parts and Hop-up parts of ALL kits are available.


Thanks in advance for your help!

the tamiyas are bashers, not really race worthy. they both have slipper clutches that are not race legal.
the hobao is based off of the hyper 7, not the 8. my buddy has one and he never finished a race because it always breaks.
i would get the jammin, its a great truck and can slowly be upgraded to a pro-level kit.

Jammin,Jammin,Jammin did I say jammin.On the prices you listed for them....those might kinda be off.I know for a fact that the hyper doesn`t cost more than the crt rtr.Just get the CRT and you will be glad you did.


One reason to get the Jammin is because they have proven time and time again that they are good trucks

I know the losi buggy was not included on the list, but how does the losi buggy compare to the jammin buggy. I have a friend who is trying to get into the hobby that wants a jammin but is considering the losi because of better part support. any info is much appreciated..

Well I donít own either and itís going to depend on the driver but I would go with the 8IGHT, especially if youíre looking at the RTR. You get some decent electronics with the 8IGHT RTR.

A guy at the local track (very competent driver) has been breaking his hyper st alot.
I personally have the losi 8T rtr and love it. The components (engine, radio, parts, servos,) are great for the money when compared with other rtr's

If given a choice from your list, go jammin. If not then losi

Losi is the best rtr. however because he is in asia, parts support will be horrible. we can barely get the parts here in the US. go with the jammin, its the best of whats availible to you.
