from those the jammin is the newest and probably the best of those three.

But the xray XT-8 is an awesome machine, you should look into it.

I've owned my 5T prospec for almost a year, and have never broke anything at all. Only mods i've done was a BCE chassis, the Mugen alumanum rear chassis ancor, and a set of AVID brake rotors. I'm even using the plastic chassis stiffners with mine. It's light, nimble and has some serious steering. Oh, I also added ceramic bearing to the drive train except the wheels, those are just std. bearings. I'm just waiting till Mugen comes out with some bigger bore shocks.
