So those are updates to the kit that is now avaliable? I'm going to buy a Jammin soon so I'm wondering if I should wait for this one to become avaliable before I spend my cash.

Well I dont think I'm going to wait then, I'll go ahead and buy it as soon as I get paid. But there is one thing that I noticed when I was taking out a X1 RTR to put it on display at the hobby shop is that the body doesnt fit very well. The body seems to be way to wide, is this also the case on the pro kit? I'm assuming it would be, if so is there a different body that will fit better?

Ok, so I'm buying this buggy on Monday. What should I get for spare parts? What are the most common things to break? I'm thinking a front shock tower, and mabye some turnbuckles? A spare wing of course, but what about the screw type hinge pins? Any tips for building it? Thanks, I cant wait to get this thing and start building!

I'm getting a Hyper 8 port race engine w/boost chamber as well, anyone else running this engine? A buddy of mine has one in his Kyosho with an OS carb and it runs great, but I wonder how good the regular carb is...hmmm. Oh well as long as its as reliable as my Force 21 P4, but with more power I'll be happy with it!

wheelnut,

I just completed building my Jammin last week. I would highly recommend getting the screw type hinge pins. I didnt even install the stock ones.

Welcome to the Jammin' way of life! I don't think you'll need any turnbuckles...I've beat the crap out of the Jammin' car and have never even bent one. The X1CR is my first nitro car and I've only busted a few parts:

1 rear hub
1 front shock tower (on a small track completely lined with concrete...)
2 bumpers (1 by rear ending a rookie that threw his car on the track from the pits...)

I've also broken the early production steering posts (x2). The latest ones are holding up fine.

I'd go with the captured hinge-pins and the wizzy motor mount...that's it. Anything else is just for tunning (toe and caster blocks).

I've got a new pro kit comming into the shop on Monday. If it has the latest parts (towers and shocks) then I'll build it for Red Deer. Are you going to the Red Deer WCORCS race?

no, not any of that, dont fool your self, this buggy is strong.. only one thing to change is the front lower arm holder B block, get the alluminium one. the standard plastic is very easy to bend u-shape or break. just spare front lower arm..

I just finished building the buggy a few hours ago, daaaamn this thing is sweet! Everything went together pretty good, alittle tiny bit of binding in a few spots and I only got one wing button, aside from that though it was really good. All the parts are as I expected, excellent quality, I would of course expect no less of a HongNor buggy. So what is the deal with the screw type hinge pins? Are they stronger? Or is it just the fact that you dont need E-clips? I figure if this this holds up as well as my 9.5 I wont have to worry about a thing! Damn that thing was a tank.

I cant go the Red Deer WCORCS, but man would I ever love to, that would be awsome! Unfortunately the boss is out of town this weekend so I'm stuck at work on saturday Mabye I'll be able to make the final round in September. Although I'm going to go up north to the small city of Fort St. John where they've got a really nice track to test out my new buggy for the first time.

Whats wrong with screw type hinge pins,You don't have to crap aroung with the e-clips.Screw type is more reliable.
