Ran my car again today, at the new track at the Palomar R/C Flyers club. Set the track record and won the main event by over four laps.

I ran Jammin' Rippers! This car is soo dialed. It's easy to drive, has tremendous steering, and jumps out of corners like a bottle rocket.

Jeez, you're making me want to get one of these now too. I thought I had it narrowed down to the 777 sp1 and the XB8.

Aaron, thanks for your help on setting up my car at the Palomar track. Stiffening the shock
oil made the biggest difference. Looks like I finished in third after all. I had second so locked up
for the first ten minutes, then after my second pit stop my clutch locked up, and if i hit the brakes
to hard and stopped the wheel from spinning I would flame out. Happened to me five times. Still
managed to get third place. The car is well planted, never thought it could drive so well.

Randy - I'm pretty sure the website says six laps..so I doubled your prediction..

I'll head down there whenever I get free time..HAHAHAHA

Breakin2 - Haha..sorry about that! It'd be extremely unfair to look at the competitive 1/8th scale market without giving the X-1 a serious look. The quality of the kit itself and the unbelieveable performance is hard to pass up!

Chim-Chim - That's what I thought! I didn't think it was possible to have such crazy steering but still be easy to drive. I'm able to drive the car so hard..yet it keeps begging for more. I love it.

Dibs - I don't remember where I ended up with shock oil Sunday. I am running the stock setup, with the shocks moved out on the arms, 5-7-2 diff oil, and I THINK the same shock oil as Adam's setup on the Jammin' site.

Yeah, it was pretty bad. I just never let up, kept driving as hard as I could and my car kept getting better as the race went on.

I'm bummed that I may not get to run my buggy this weekend. We have an electric race at Titus on Sunday and we'll need to practice.

I'm running the stock shoes with Hyper 1.1 springs. CRAZY bottom end

I had some motor issues (lightbulbs shine the brightest right before they burn out!) and didn't get to run my buggy..but man it was dialed in practice!

Just curious, if I was to get a "Jammin X-1 RTR" kit, would it be fairly competitive?

YES! The car is geometrically identical to the Pro kit, but some of the bling-bling has been taken out to keep costs down (typical RTR stuff). The car is still every bit as dialed. With the stock engine and radio equipment you should have no problems keeping up at the local track.

If you do plan on racing, I highly suggest replacing the radio equipment when your budget allows, and the engine with a race-legal .21 when the time comes, but the included gear is more than up to the task of club racing.

Aaron , I got an extra set of diff mounting post and steering post in my x-1 kit. They were in a seperate bag in the box. Is there something wrong with one of these ? I used the ones in the bag with all the other parts. I got three races on it with no bad crashes and I took it apart to go through it and clean it up and noticed that my 2 rear diff post were broke. At the time I was running a crono motor. I have never seen this happen before. Do you know if these other post are updates?

I just got my RC Driver in the mail today and saw that the Jammin was given a pretty fantastic review. They finally reviewed the kit version (the first magazine I know to do so) and raved about it.
