I started with the Jammin X1-CR FTE(Factory Team Edition)(Kit)
What a great starter buggy.
Very neutral and predictable.
I raced that car for 2 years. It took a ton of abuse as I was learning
The Jammin does nothing exceptional. BUT it does everything very well.
Thats what makes it a great car.

There is a guy at my local track that is selling his Jammin X1-CR FTE.
It has a ton of updates on it.
PM me and I can get you intouch with him if you are interested.

the LX series are Hong Nor Racing, the so called OFNA Picco is nothing else than a 9.5 buggy, also a Hong Nor buggy

Absolutely Not! Sorry..... It may have Ofna's name on it, but Ofna is only a distribution warehouse, and they do not make/have anything of their own. However, they are so huge, many of the items they get are made by Hoboa, or Hong-Nor with Ofna's name on them. Like starter boxes, batteries, parts, etc>

As a rule Ofna buggy's are crap. They do have a place though for a beginner to get their feet wet. But for the price there are others that willperform much better. Please don't mistake Ofna buggy's for the Hong Nor/Ho Bao buggy's that they just distribute. If it weren't for those lines I do not believe Ofna would even BE in the buggy scene.

OFNA doesn't make any buggies at all.... they just have a few accessories that they sale.. all they do is give a bad reputation to the top of the line products from HoBao Racing and Hong Nor Racing.... and to be honest with you I think that NitroHouse should be the US distributors for these products and not OFNA... Tim Bump & Rob Bender from NitoHouse are GREAT guys and got their shiat together (unlike OFNA) the support and help that we get from Nitrohouse is plain and simple the best around...
note: the only guy from OFNA that knows anything about the rc world is DJ..

Ofna Owns Nitrohouse D8, Ofna cant sell direct to the public because they are the importers/distributers, and they would be cutting out all the stores and on-line dealers they distribute to, so they opened Nitrohouse, which by the way just happens to be in the same building as Ofna

I know... Nitrohouse is across the hall from OFNA, but I din't know that OFNA were the actual owner of Nitrohouse Rob never told me that. Tim & Rob need to go on their own and become the US distributors and push OFNA to the side.... (just a joke)

I can guarantee you that ofna does not own Nitrohouse. Tim Bump and his wife own Nitrohouse. Rob is the way underpaid guy that has the knowledge.

I would go with Chris, if he knows for fact. I am just going off rumors and speculation. Rob would never give me a clear answer as to who the owner was, My apologies if I am spreading untrue rumors, but one guy at Nitrohouse, when I asked him a question, and he didn't know told me Ofna and Nitrohouse were owned by the same corporation. ( It was not Rob Bender) It is possible he was just misinformed, but since he was an employee of Nitrohouse, I kinda figured he might know what he was speaking about. This was a couple of years ago
