Jammin's are made by Hon-nor, I think. Pro vs RTR? All it takes is a strong credit card, to find out.

Yes!! It's always better to buy any car/buggy as a pro kit, than as a RTR. RTR's use the cheepest crappiest parts they can find, including Radio, engine, servo's and sometimes even Chassis..If you buy a RTR, by the time you are done replacing everything that sucks..you spend almost double the price than if you buy the Kit, and drop in your own servo's radio (RX) engine, pipe, etc...If you are not worried about initial $$$ over Long term $$$$$ ..KITS are the only way to go

Default Difference

Basically, the hong nor car and regular jammin products car are the same. The main differences being that the usa or jammin kit comes with a few different parts, such as tires and lunsford accessories. Now as far as a pro kit or rtr. I would have to definitely agree and say that the kit is the way to go. Not only is it cheaper and probably the better option, but if you plan on doing serious racing you are going to get rid of all the rtr stuff anyways.


Just my 2 cents.

My first nitro was A x1 crt rtr. RTR = Money pit and frustration. By the time I was done upgrading it was much more expensive. Some of the upgrades included captured hinge pins instead of e-clips $50, FIORONI main chassis $115, toe in plastic vrs aluminum $50, servo's, transmitter, and receiver are garbage, chassis braces(front,rear and center) alum vs plastic aprox. $60, engines generally very inexpensive(cheaply manuf. and fuel hogs) list goes on & on. My second purchase was a x1x cr buggy pro. Much better ride and now a x2crt pro. I Think a great start without breaking the bank would be a x2 cr pro(if you want a buggy) aprox $600, FUTABA 3PM 2.4 fasst sys. aprox $180 w/receiver, jr9100t,9100s - aprox. $240, JPX.21 engine and JP3 pipe aprox. $300 for both a starter box OFNA dual 775 aprox. $85 and a couple 2000mah batteries and maybe a few hop up parts(not necessary) this will give you a nitro that will be much easier to control, durable and fast. Hope the price does not scare you off. Just my experience. If you really enjoy the hobby like most of us you are better off to spend the money up front. There are much more expensive options then this. I just feel this is a solid starting point. I am sure others will have diff. opinions. I wish I would have read something like this when I first started.

The Hong Nor X2 comes with the " Hong Nor X LPR Tyres " and Sponge Foams. The Jammin X2 comes bundled with " Pro Line Bow Ties " and Ofna Yellow Molded Foams.

Other than that, and the stickers that come with the kit, there are no differiences. Jammin is manufactured by Hong Nor, but is re-badged to Jammin for the US & Canada Markets.

As for engine selections, go for a 21, dont waste your time with a 28. With a 28 in this truggy, you'll get huge amounts of wheelspin, and it'll actually hurt your lap times. I prefer Novarossi motors to anything else. But for about $220, the Jammin JPX 21 is the best for the money.

+1 on the Jammin mill. I am currently running this very combo...
JPX .21 + X2T
I also would recomend looking into the Ex Tech Pre Run or Full Mod. Pair these up with the E.T or Sirio 2057 pipe, very good power all across the board and excellent mileage. I was pushing 9 1/2 mins with this set up last summer in my buggy.
