great truggy. love mine, its box stock. not one single upgrade. very durable too and comes with some great bearing. i bought a bearing kit from a broken down X2 off ebay for back up and havent needed any so im using them on my HB D8T which i run now. still have the X2 CRT though. easy to setup also. i ran 7k front 10k center and 3k rear and 40wt in the shocks all the way around. works at every track i have been too. the only problem really is they use half offset wheels and most people run zero offset now. but to be completely honest with you the HB D8T blows the jammin away in almost every way, and its cheaper. i would take a look at the D8T before you buy. but the jammin is great too.

are you buying the pro kit or RTR? if RTR it will need the kits shock towers.

my rating on the kit from scale 1-10 is a 7.5-8.5 just depending on the track. and HB is a 11

As much as I like my ole Jammin truggys, I would
have to sugest that you buy something else.
Jammin Jay hasn't been able to keep up with
the times, as far as the 1/8 line up goes.
Instead, he has devoted what little talent
he has left as a designer, to building those
freakin flashlights on four wheels 1/10 SC trucks.

Default x2 crt

I just sold a Team version that has the zero offset mod. Make sure it is the Zero offset mod or you will want to convert it. Great Truggy

That is exactly why I stopped racing my jammin x2.. it would get updated then be outdated seemingly forever.. I switched to the HB D8T and an impressed with the entire package.. Part support and availability are much better. Its sad, the Jammin was very competitive for a while. However Jammin is into full scale racing right now.

I switched for the same reason, great truck, bullet proof, but getting outdated .

the X2 was the first "new generation truggy". IMO they came out to soon and when losi and mugen came out with there new one they were behind again.

It is a bomb-proof ride durability wise.

You would probably be forced to do a 0-offset mod setup to get some more steering out of the truck.

As others have said, Losi, Mugen, and HB all have better platforms right now and if I were buying a new ride I'd narrow it down to one of those 3 and pick based upon personal preference and local parts support from other racers.

Good luck.

I don't know about you guys but I just went back to running my X2 because I was waiting for my H9 chassis to come in. Dropped a Bulldog body on and runs killer, steering and handling is very good, I had guys ask me if was a new Jammin because it looked good into the corners and came off the jumps great, but I told it's just a Bulldog body on it. They said now way it looks longer but with the illusion of the body it looks way long. I wasn't a fan of the cab-forward bodies but lap times are better. Still the X2 pro with the half offset but will try extended hubs and 0 offset later but I'm having fun with the truck the way it is.

As much as I hate to admit it(see username), I agree. Jammin has really let the 1/8 scale program slide. They used to be THE truggy to have, but times have changed. X2 overall is a good truggy, but is way behind the current trucks. It is heavy and sluggish compared to today's truggies. If you're racing, I would suggest looking elsewhere. Some to look at would be... Losi, Hot Bodies, and Mugen. Those would be my top 3. I personally drive the losi 8T 2.0, and couldn't be happier. The Hot Bodies D8T is a great truggy with a great price and the Mugen is a sweet ride too.

I run 7fr 10 cent 3 rear, and 1.4 shock pistons with Losi 45 fr 40 rear works great for me .

+1 but i run 40 all away around in shocks. i also ran blue springs all around too. ride height: front arms level and rear arms just a little higher than level and youll hit ever inside pipe on the track lol

+1 on the set up , I have a couple pair of shocks I had taken to the track. One set with gray springs all the way around, with spring adjuster turned alomost to the bottoms on each end and they work well . but i also like the blue springs a little better and not so much preload .
