Both are really good cars, with good support for both within Australia. I own the RC8 & it responds to set-up change really well.

Box stock is pretty good also on most aussie tracks.

there both very nice cars, but if it were me buying i would go with the jammin cause its a very proven platform, built like a tank and runs super fast laps...with the new SBB and light weight gears in the kit you cant go wrong...
