I'm not trying to be an ass, but do your research and decide for yourself. Use the search button or look at the threads for the cars you mentioned, you will see each has its own flaws. From there you can decide which is right for you. The only thing these X Vs.Y threads do are start arguments.

Jammin is a tank and Jammin parts are lasting longer than Losi...

1st ask your question on any thread you choose. Those who don't want to answer should skip over your thread. There are those who don't mind answering questions whether they are redundant or not.

Losi's parts wear quicker durability wise I would say they are they same. Which is pretty good because losi are very durable. Handling is not even close Losi by a mile. Before somebody chimes in and says the Losi is twitchy. They would be correct they would also be, another person who had it set up wrong for there skill level. ANY buggy or truggy can be dialed down or up according to your skill level or driving style. Thats why they make all those shock springs, position settings, clutch springs, ackermans, swaybars, shock and diff oils.

All Buggy and Truggy parts wear and break. Otherwise there would not be that big wall of parts for every brand at your lhs. What you should do is drive both and see which one you like more.

thanks for the replies I think I will be going with the jammin because as you said above it sounds like the parts on the losi wear quicker than I would want them to

Even though the 8ight wears quickly, it runs very good with slop. Like in the manual, there is a "break in" period for slop to develop. What parts does your track/LHS stock?

ofna/jammin, losi(mostly) and associated
I was worried about when he said it wears quickly but since you said it runs better with slop I guess I will get that, 9/10 people out there run the losi 8 anyway

First off, this is a pretty good post...



I've owned both. The Losi DOES wear parts faster. On the other hand, Losi parts are less expensive in general.

So cost of ownership is a wash.

Both are tough. (I'm a good crash tester!)

There are a few more areas that need more frequent attention on the Losi than the Jammin.

The Losi is lighter and more agile, but yes, it can be twitchy. It will out-accelerate and out-turn the Jammin.

The Jammin is more forgiving, partly because it weighs more so it doesn't react as fast to input. It will NOT accelerate as good as the Losi. It will get pretty close on turning ability, but in a different way. The Losi is edgier, it needs a smoother driver. The Jammin is very forgiving. (All things being equal... and yes, setup on either makes a big difference.)

You can probably turn a faster "fast lap" with a Losi. You also will probably be more consistant with the Jammin, especially if you are a beginner. Both are great cars. I personally think the Jammin is a better BEGINNER car.
