Default Jammin' Exclusive?!?!?!

Ok, I do not get it. In the October issue of RC Driver They had a review on the Jammin' X2 Truggy. Great article and I now want one...

I just got the November issue of RCCA and they calim they have an EXCLUSIVE.. I don't get it. How do you get an exclusive when it was already reviewed and reported on in a better publication....

I will not be resubscribing to Crap Action.

Sorry for the rant

It's called marketing.

It was the exclusive article about the Jammin in their magazine, as none of the other articles were about the Jammin Truggy!!, lol

Just another way to try and Hook you into buying it. They all do that...on another note, I must say that RCCA is the best mag out there related to Off-road,but that's just my opinion

RCCA is a good magazine, and they did a great job of covering the recent 1/8 IFMAR Buggy World Championships.

Slightly off topic but, I wanted to run a 2nd Gen Truggy so I bought an X2, This thing is very responsive, and has turn radius unlike any truggy I have run. I put an old style GRP Ninja 28 in and shaved 2 seconds off my personal best lap times at every track that I run. I am normally a Losi guy across the board, 2 LST2, 8ight B, and I have had 3 8ight-T's, but after running this Jammin its gonna be tough going back, Losi better bring it with the 8ight-T 2.0. Anyway back to your regularly scheduled magazine discussions

I feel the same way about my Hyper ST Pro. I have tried many other truggies at our track, but once you find the one you love, the rest are all poop! But it's all just a matter of opinion
