First time out on the track I felt like the car was too responsive on steering. This was due to the fact that I wasnt used to the steering I have now.
The car goes great WOW. the PBS gives a new meaning to hugging the pipe. The X1 is a good handler as is with the c-hub. I feel the PBS takes the X1 to the next level. I am sure some may not agree but it is impossible to think their is no improvement. I can take turns tighter clsoe wide turns quicker and overall the car goes great. The major improvement for me is that when you overshoot a turn and then have to take it wide, you can cut the arc smaller and turn in tight. Definitely running tighter lines.
So forr those that wanted to know, its definitely an improvement. I had no problems with durability. The X1 is still a tank.
I have a video clip but size is an issue. Maybe I can load it somewhere. any suggestions?


Jerseyboy my friend, try to register and upload the video to images.domino.org, great place to upload rc videos.

Default Jammin PBS movies

OK Guys hope you enjoy the video clips. My son took them.
The track is rutted and very loose with sand lying on the track.
My car is using my practice prepainted Jammin body.

hey guys, does jammin make optional front kick up plates for the x1cr pro? i was told to lower the front arm angles, but unfortuntely, i discovered i can't use the rear plates for the front.

what effect exactly would i get by making the front arms more level?

(i'm racing on a very bumpy and rutted track, which changes throughout the day as we hose it down from a thickish damp dirt crimefighters used, to a hard compacted dusty track, more suited to bow ties).

jersey, the track is loose sandy... hard to drive but thats where setup plays alot. furthermore, everyone goona be enjoying it therefore it equal to everybody. how's traction? what tire to use... thats important in your track.

tabushi, i never tried using the block a. i dont even have one. but you can always try installing it and test drive. thats the only way to find it out. if you can't detect the difference, meaning its not worth it to change. but i am sure it benefit something for particular track or situation.

From My understanding the front lower block A or B changes your caster.
If you use the CNC C-hubs with the Lower A block you have maximum caster.

Caster, not camber.
