Please give me what you would do and what it improves overall?
The screw and nut type hinge pins are a must I've been told...

There's a TON of Jammin' cars here on a local level..maybe 20-30%?

The threaded hinge pins are good, but only because you don't have to hassle with e-clips. There's nothing seriously wrong with the stock ones.

The aftermarket brakes are a good thing to have though.

I don't know when it started, or when it will start, but I know they are going to start shipping kits with the better brakes already in them.

Not really...it certainly looks better. The PL wing is stronger too.

Theoretically, there's more surface area..so it should be more stable, but I don't think it's a big enough difference.

Yer i don't know what the big fuss is over the threaded hinge pins, i have been running the buggy for 6 months and i haven't had one pop off yet. And the only problem with the standard brakes are the cams, but once you grind the back edge off, they work great. The only problem that i have encounted with the buggy is the wear in the center outdrives!! And they fixed that with the new kit, very impressive hong nor! They are very keen to see this buggy get to number one in the world, and there not far off! just my thoughts

OK guys,

im having trouble making a decision. I getting rid of my Mayhem Pro. (the thing is way too fussy) and im stepping up.

My debate is wether to get the jammin x1 cr pro or a kyosho sp2.

i know the SP2 is more money, but i have never seen a jammin run. I know at least one of you has both buggys. can you give me some honest feedback on both.

It seems that really, the Mugen, Kyosho, and Jammin' cars take up the HUGE majority of the privateers in southern California.

arghh - In the eyes of all the magazines and an overwhelming percentage of the privateers I've talked to, the Jammin' and Kyosho cars are very close in performance, but with the Jammin' car (and parts!) being much less expensive.

What you need to do is find out the pros and cons of both buggies and whatever one out wheighs the other then you make your decision based on that.All newer buggies are going to be similar and very competitive you need to remember that a good driver makes a bad buggy look good and a Bad driver can make a good buggy look bad. Base your choice on what makes sense for you parts avalibility,adjustability, dont make a choice just because a car won the worlds last year.Alot of people do~


I LOVE MY JAMMIN!!!!

In the Toronto (Canada) area races I'm the only person with a Jammin and parts are very scarce. However, "I LOVE MY JAMMIN!!!!"
