Well, it's about time Hong Nor came out with something new. However, I don't see any "real" innovations here. The front A-Arms are definatly beefy though ... Hopfully, they will follow with a new Truggy also.

I must admit that I am not impressed with the new Jammin car. I expected more.
All thye new cars Agama, JQ the car, Serpent, Xray 808 and most new cars are all a copy of the LOSI 8.

All uses the same front end and rear end. So what if the've moved the parts around on the chassis. Its still the same cars.

Nothing new and innovative.
You better off holding on to the old car.

Car is not designed by Jammin (Jay Halsey) this time as their contract was finished end 2010.
Is a full HN engineers job.

Time will tell if it is enough to head up with the so called major brands.

It will not be called X3 btw

Name is to be revealed at a later date.

i think form what i see so far there are alot of improvements over the x2 and that was a good platform not saying it the same buggy but if it can compete with the newer buggys that have been released as far as weight and tunability it will sale

I had to wait to see this also as of now, so I have not had this in my hands. But it looks like they wanted some change in the car, of couse its a new car from the ground up in the pics. New towers, Battery box location, new akerman bar, front camber links, and yes those beefy arms. I'm happy to see the car I'm sure it will have it's fair share in the market, can't wait to get one soon.

I hope they call it the Hong Nor-R2- lol.

huh..interesting prototype..for me its looks more like a taiwan born cobra + a blend of D8...so guess the name of the production car will be name "Anaconda X"

the previous generation X2 = heavily armoured tank
prototype 2011 = lightweight tank?

still running x2 till 2 day..hope to see some changes in the new platform..gonna get me a new car soon..
