I forgot to mention but just in case you couldn't hear it I have the bottom end slightly richer than normal with a tad bit lean top to take away some of the bottom end while on the track. I put it back at race tune for the end of the vid in the yard.

Also I had my throttle end point set at only 65% as that engine is just way too much power for my little backyard track.

i dont race a 28 but all my friends and fellow racers that do seem to like to talk about the Jammin in a positive way. i run the .24 extech which has good bang for the buck and better on fuel thatn any 28. $229 base model is all you need.

Exclamation Both are wicked get both of them!! LOL

The LRP.28 is an awesome engine great powerband, but a pig on fuel!!
The Jammin.28 very similar but better fuel economy!!

Of the two here Id pick the LRP.28 though. Little Cheaper on $$$

Jammin 28 is my pick.... it will absolutely kill the LRP 28 and get better mileage doing it....hell a Jammin 21 even makes more power and RPM then a LRP 28........

Good stuff guys. The Jammin seems to be pretty much the "best bang for the buck" .28 around.

I'm sure there are others out there that are plenty good, but the Jammin appears to have history with a lot of people, and it's fairly inexpensive.

c'mon, one more post for a score of three....

when someone has posted already and then again in CAPS. (especially 5mins after my post) my belief is you're talking to me.... so BIG guy, Please tell us where that divine research you expressed explaining the life spans between the Jammin and LRP... Or is your comment directly pulled out of the AzzMasters of R/C Book of Closet Scretes....
