personally i like the jammin x2 truggy but i talked to alot of people that run team ae rc8t and they are very pleased with them. i think both truggys are very good in different ways but it all personal info. good luck in what you choose there are plenty of good truggys out there just my 2 cents

i just picked up an rc8t, and retiring my mbx5t. We have 5 AE drivers that race consistently, including Richard Saxton. The setup support alone was worth the switch.

I had the x1crt for a while now and was thinkin about upgrading to the x2. But nobody at my track runs a jammin of any kind, which is kinda weird. The truggy class is made up of almost half rc8ts and the other half are 8ight t's and a couple of odonnel sponsered guys that dominate everyone. So i went with the rc8t because of avalibility of parts and they look good on the track. If more people at your track run the jammin, give it a try.They are both awesome trucks and should be equally competitive.
