youll end up spending more to get the xray up to the same level as the Jammin. Remember the XB8R is the RTR beginner version and the jammin x-1CR is the race version

xb8r isnīt a rtr version,itīs just a racer verion of the original xb8.Itīs far away from a beginner model.

Brad, I'm with you on the trip to the "Bar room" haha.

If you interested i've listed my X1 on E bay, not any problem, just too many toys and a lack of preperation on my part. I raced 5 classes at our Florida state series this weekend and felt way less then prepared, so the 1/8th is my non sponsored car, so it's gotta go!.....I'll miss it....ttyl, Jim

Jim-I just put it on my watch list. Still have not made up my mind about a buggy, but I have narrowed it down to the X1 and the XB8R. Im going to race the AD2 Saturday, hopefully(hurricane emily is in the gulf), and I am going to talk to the guys who run these two cars. Im pretty close to just flipping a coin to decide.

Guys, I just got myself a 2nd unit of X1CR and would like to find out how the mentioned con/problem/issue can be solved. Hopefully all the X1 master can show me (with pics of possible) coz am not only new to X1CR but also new to buggy as well.
