Yes sir it does. ^^ I'm not sure but I seem to remember it changes the front kickup as well where as the front C-hubs will not. Just a different tunning option.

I am glad to share guys. Every upgarde so far that I have added to my X1 has not only improved durability but also adjustment. The fron C-b also ifyou move to the puter top hole and you fit titanium turnbuckles you can lengthen your front upper arm which changes the geometry of your front suspension.
Meaning that when your shock is compressed teh contact area of tyre to surface is increase.

I hope you I am explaining it clear enough. Its the same as with other cars, you change you front upper arm longer or shorter.

Just some reasons I feel the the Jammin X1 has not yet reached its peak in performance.
Whoever is jumping ship to other brands from Jammin will be very dissappointed. Jammin is going to World champ one day.

arghh caster is a great tunning option. I don't really know why they didn't do different hubs like some of the other cars. A guess would be that they felt if you are going to change caster you should also change kick up. This was one thing I did not like when I bought my Jammin. Ofna offered me some help last season so I went along for the ride. After driving the car I never thought twice about it again. I built my car with the A blocks at first and soon moved to the B blocks like every body else.

Go to www.teamxray.com and download the setup manual for the XB8. You can't adjust everything in the same manor but the principles of why you adjust them ae the same.

Castor is something that is used to help handling on a bumpy track. Touring cars use 0-6' typically. We use more on the offroad side because we run on bumpier tracks. Typically, the more castor, the more initial turn in you will have.

XRAY has the best tuning manuals. I run an XRAY sedan and have used the tuning and set up manual that came with it for my dirt cars allot.

Camber gain, Roll center, ackerman, droop, it all used to give me a raging headache untill I studied some tuning guides.

Scott you had posted above that more caster has better turn in. It is the opposite I believe.

More caster = less turn in but is better coming out.
Less caster = more turn in but not as good coming out.

Wus up Mr. Wrigley! I had a little practice session one night after a race in Lincoln. I drove a SP2 for about 3 tanks and came home with a brand new plan. After about three laps I felt like I had been driving that buggy all season. So the Jammin will be up for sale soon. I had a good time with the Jammin and it's a good buggy I just felt more comfortable in the SP2. The deal with Steve didn't help matters either if ya know what I mean.
