Well I went with the Jammin..I just got done building it and tomorrow will be the first outing with it....I had previously driven one and made my decision based off of that......The jammin needs very little out of box,maybe a thicker aluminum ackerman,aluminum top plate,and titanium turnbuckles......

By the time you buy the RC8,aluminum hinge pin braces, aluminum top plate, aluminum knuckles, aluminum ackerman etc:etc:etc: you going to wish you just bought the Jammin..........

The jammin is a nice truck and probably the best out of box kit you can get for a truggy........

The X2 only has about a dozen or so parts that are different from the X1, however the way it handles is a whole new truggy. I can only speak about the X1 and X2 since i have both of them. I am very happy on the way the X2 drives. When i was building it, i had a feel like why did i buy this when most of the parts are the same. But, when i got it on the track i was and am very happy on the way it drives. I wish you the best of luck on which ever truggy you buy.

Good luck.

dude, chill. his facts are straight. you may have had good luck with yours, and that's great! but the fact is most people have had issues until they change at least the hinge pin holders to king headz or m2c.

a lot also has to do with preparation and assembly. a newbe is most likely gonna have issues with his truck on a first build simply because they lack experience and the knowledge it takes to make one of these bullet proof. we all know of places we do certain things on our vehicles based on problems in the past. newbe's don't have that luxury and are usually the first to complain that their new vehicle is a pile of crap. (not pointing the finger at anyone here, just talking about some of the newbes.)
