Default Jammin X2

Any of you nitro guru's know the latest on the release of the Jammin X2 Truggy? Last I heard they were working on box art and instructions. I know the last race Chad Bradley ran he was running a 100% production truggy

They're still dragging their feet; no hard release date as this time...

Hate they haven't gotten on with the program; because I would have loved to run Truggy this season but it looks like they're going to have a mid-season intro.

When do you think people who havent bought yet should start looking around?

I really dont want to buy right now

Mugen, OCM, Jammin, Cen, Tamiya.

All have new truggies coming out soon (Mugen might have one )

I might have to wait till june/early july to buy.

I'm not real worried about it; we've got a secondary pre-worlds this summer, so I kind of expect to see a release just before or after that. They really should have things finalized by then.

The more testing the companies do the better. It isn't any good releasing a half ready truck with tons of problems. Of course I would also like the companies to release the trucks quicker, but you know...

Wud up Tom!

It doesn't matter when they release this. We all know that as soon as they do they will prolly be the hottest selling ride out there. Not for me though

They better do something soon. Alot of people
have jumped off the Jammin wagon this season.
If it wouldn't have been for the BCE-PJX chassis
with small diff conversion, I would have too. All
that I want off the X-2 is a couple of the
re-designed fuel tanks. I here that the Hyper 9
truggie may be just around the corner also.

Has anyone heard any info about what CNC parts will be included in the box?
Front Upper/Lower A or B Block????
Rear Uprights????
Toe Block????
Anti-Squat????

I've heard the Chassis Braces will be a very strong plastic (heat resistant).
CNC Chassis Braces will not be standard!!!
Anyone heard or read anything else???

Everything is purely rumored at this point. Nothing is completely nailed down.

I highly doubt that they will change anything like that on the FTE kits from how they are now. CNC braces will likely still be standard; however the arm blocks may/may not be. They're not *really* necessary though.

Bradley posted the info about the plastic chassis braces on Neo. The kit will have the plastic ones, so if you like CNC, that will be a separate purchase.

He did say the material is heat resistant, and very strong. That's why I was wondering if other CNC parts will be swapped out for plastic to reduce weight.

I would rather have CNC braces standard, and throw the new plastic ones in the box as an option. I'm a big fan of cartwheels and awkward landings, so you can understand why I would want everything to be CNC. Just my opinion!!

Sounds like my typical practice session

I just prefer they get with the program and bring it to market.
