i want a picture of a x2 on a scale the x2 is no where near lighter then a rc8t.
ive driven a pjx jammin and the rc8t slaughters it. it handles better jumps better and turns better. and for those that say the pjx and the x2 arent the same they are ythe same truggy but the jammin is wider because they had to use there motor mount wich has a huge footprint. so all those people that claim the x2 is lighter i want a picture of it on the scale

My RC8T weighs less, 9lb. 8oz. w/body & LPR crimefighters on stock wheels.
The weight of the tires and wheels surprised me at just shy of 2lb

hey Max by any chance you know roughly what the run time you friends get on fuel on the X2?

The mileage we are getting is unreal....we filmed 10:40 track running on a huge track with loose deep dirt and a 200' straight..and returned with 30 cc of fuel..... That is my race modified JPX 21 on a JP4, Picco medium plug and OD 30% and stock X2 clutch..a full house Jammin ride LOL.......... radar the setup runs 45 MPH and has acceleration like a 28 ..... the X2 is off the hook, i absolutely love the Truggy !! i love how it jumps, it hangs low and lands with zero drama, just hooks up and goes...

heres the video we shot, i did edit out some of it... we would have finished the tank but we were getting eaten alive by Mosquito's so we called it a day at 10:40, the driver was getting all bugged out !! LOL so any odd wipeouts were where the driver was swatting off the swarms of bugs that were attacking us....

that motor is within an inch of his life, lotta off throttle too. he'd get even better mileage all that said if he'd put an egg under his trigger. sometimes i wish folks could sit in a real car and have some1 use the gas like that.

again, saw more hub retainer ring failures causin folks to drop outta heats. and subsequently tryin to find fixes.

PS-To AE's credit they now have a truck we should all be gettin instead of these space rovers with teretts (loved that comment)...

Why you keep talking about the hub pins falling out I have a nitro rc8t and electric rc8 and I beat the $h!t out of both of them and let other people do the same I have never had a problem with any of the pins coming and have never heard of anybody else that i know that has a rc8/t having the issues you keep talking about

I have never seen anyone have trouble with the rings. If you want added protection you can put a little shoegoo on them.

Which motor is within a inch of its life ? are you referring to the motor in the video ? If by chance you are I can assure that motor is not within an inch of its life, its running a good tune and temping an average of 210.... That particular motor runs like that day in and day out and never misses a beat...just like CLOCKWORK !!!
