Not sure how many racers are still running a jammin truggy

My friend and I thought it was an easy way to give the truggy an updated look and maybe some better handling, while not spending alot to do it.

Sorry if this not posted in the best place.

Also the rear arm guards are made out of the scrap lexan from the rear body cut outs. Not sure if you can see them.

Mb,

Will do. My friend doesn't come on here (yet), I keep telling him to, but he has yet to. The hubs are Associated ones that he modded his axles to fit the pind in to. Should be better than it was and if it works ok, I might have him try the CE narrow hubs just to see which he likes better.

He's not the fastest racer, but the Jammin seems to fit him and usually works well for him. Plus he has a ton of parts fot it.

Major,

Good deal, hope you like it. Not sure how well it will work, but looks much better on the truggy.

Default Bulldog body

Do you have a picture or tell me how you modified the shock tower? Wonder if turning the body holder upside down in the rear would hold it?

People say that Jammin X2 needs an update, but when I look at the manual for the xray 808, everything pretty much looks identical to the Jammin, what is so new regarding the other buggies?

the buggy is pretty good but its not as easy to drive as others. the X1 is better than the X2 IMO. but the truggy needs an upgrade. it traction roles easy and doesnt hook up like others.

yeah i guess you could say that lol but if you drive the X1 buggy or truggy then go to another brand it will be harder to drive. i have all 4 jammins X1 buggy and truggy and X2 buggy and truggy. i prefer the X1 buggy and X2 truggy.

but i was just reading something and Jake Weimer who is leading the points in the west coast pro supercross series is sponsored by jammin RC products and runs them once a week usually, maybe more people will start running jammins again atleast people who race motocross and race RC for fun

with taylor james leaving jammin its hard to say. Taylor james was the fassest driver jammin had and he left. I think it is because hong nor does not what to invest money into a new truggy and buggy. Bradly is doing ok but it really lacking compared to what they were doing 3 years ago.

Major,

What we did was, using my RC8T body as it was trimmed out for my truggy, pulled the rear body mount off the shock tower. I moved the skocks off the tower too as it made it easier for me to mock it up with tires on. Set the rear of the body right down on the rear wing mount arms that come through the shock tower and used a marker to draw a line across the shock tower. I used the line as a base line to work off of. We then relocated the body mount down in the shock tower. You now need two body mounts to do this. My friend cut the little nipple off the body mounts so he would only have to drill one hole through the shock tower. I told him I would have done two holes per side for a better securement, but it's his ride. There is enough meat on the Jammin tower to do that, but the milled out side that the screw would go through to the body mount isn't milled for that. So you will need to dremmel a little out for the screw head or use a washer. I'm not sure what he did on that.

I think you might be able to use the template that came with the body for the RC8T and if you get it centered on the tower, it might work out better. We didn't think of that until he already had the holes drilled and body mounted. It was a spur of the moment deal, just seeing if it could be done.

Also on the rear body line of the body where the body mount holes would go, you need to trim 2 to 3 mm extra off from the stock line. That got the body almost centered perfectly from front to rear. I'll see it I can get a few pics.
