No offense meant, as I am not in any way bashing what looks like a really nice buggy, but it looks like a lot of my Jammin / OFNA x1FTE parts would work as a direct bolt on. Does the Radical use OFNA/Jammin parts and have added their twist with the C hubs and other accessories?

If I decide to get one do I sell off all of my jammin stuff, or can I keep a fair bit of the aftermarket stuff (braces, diffs, big bore shocks, spares of everything and then some)?

I will be curious to see one of these run here in vegas next to the RC8 and the fast guys in LOSI 8IGHTs

No offense taken, however you are way off, this car is not close to the Jammin, this car is closer to a Kyosho SP2 than anything else, but it has a bit of Mugen and Xray tossed in there as well. So to answer your question. No Jammin parts will not fit. you may be able to get away with some of the Kyosho plastcis, but even then they will require some modification.

I am of a big fan of the radical mills and have my eye on this one. Not bashing it at all but the chassis looks kinda cheap! I hope it just looks that way from the pics. And whats with all the e clips. I mod every one of my rides to get rid of them but this buggy seems to use them every where. It looks like there is a TON of droop. NICE! And I like the center CVD's. Again not bashing just questions.

The CVD's are very cool, they are strong and light

There are captured hinge pins avaiable as an option, we did not include them because we wanted to keep the cost down.. street price should be in the 389 to 399 range

The stock chassis looks wierd, but works very well

Also we have 4 team drivers that have been running thier cars completely box stock right down to the e-clips.. no problems to report

yes I hate eclips too. but these are twice as thick and will not ever pop off. I replaced min with the optional captured pin's. some of my pics i hadn't put them in yet but i will tonight. Chassis is fine. it's not milled. but neither is a 600.00 mugen,or OCM, chassis looks funny cause i was working under led lights.

Buggy is great and it is the easiest I have ever assembeled.
all gears are smooth and strong
diff cases are thick,and the diff screws are large.
all drive shafts are lightened.
also shocks are really smooth and very shiney

There is a ton of droop and steering

the cast knuckles appear to be strong and have steel inserts for the screws to go into.

Chassis braces and towers are very nice and will remain stock on my buggy.

also you will notice that the radio tray attaches to the center diff mount . Nice

The fuel line clips that are normaly glued to the tank on other buggies is a thing of the past. tese bolt 2 sets to the side and the fuel filter bracket has a nice clip to hold the fuel line above it for the exhaust.

the hubs are a nice thick aluminum and the nuts are thick . should be a while before i strip them

and the wing mount is bullitt proof.
