The jammin runs good and is very durable. For the price its definately worth it. Handles good. You will be satisfied

I had problems with the Jammin diffs. Tha cases would stretch and the gears would strip. I was told to use the Kyosho diff cases,for they were a little stronger. I ultimately decided to switch to Mugen and my laptimes went up! Not to say to dismiss the Jammin. Its a worthy truggy.

Im referring to the MBX6T. Im not sure about the D8. Its hard to say which is better unles you own them all!!! Most people are bias and like what they have. You also have the Xray truggy that looks very nice!! Sorry dont mean to confuse you.

My son and I also ran the Jammins, however are now using Mugen. The Jammin is a good truck, very stable and durable. The diffs do seem to be an issue for some. I only went through 2 in 3 years time. Other than that it didn't break much. Use Bradley's latest setup, especially on the shocks. Made a big difference. You can find it somewhere in here under the Jammin threads...You likely will not be disappointed with the X2.

That being said, if you decide to go Mugen, get the MBX6T instead of the 5. Very nimble truck, almost half a pound lighter than the X2, (yes, I said half a pound!) and the quality is stellar.

The D8T would be a better option than the X2 down in your price range.

Any of the newer Truggies are really a step ahead. And almost all of them are a LOT lighter.

I never had any durability trouble of any kind out of my Jammin's. They're tanks (literally). I never broke anything no matter how bad the crash.

I'd still look around and of what you listed the D8 would be a reasonable choice.

Not sure how much heavier the Jammin is than the D8t?? It can't be by much.
