ya, check out the losi site. www.teamlosi.com

i believe you are thinking of the XXX-NT truck, which is a 2wd nitro stadium truck by Losi.

and he is right, ofna is just the distributor for Jammin, Ho Boa, and Hong Nor.

jeez all the flap and still nobody has told him the sweet buggies

The highest quality kits on the market are the kyosho, mugen, and x-ray.

They are also the most expensive. If your just bashng, i would look into getting a used Mugen MBX-5 or a kyosho kanai. They are both extremely tough and given the trucks you are running now, you will be amazed at how tough they are. I got clipped in the traight away lst weekend and my Kanai III cartwheeled down the track over 50', flew into the next lane, and got smoked my an oncoming ofna hyper 7. What broke on my car? Not a damn thing. the ofna broke an a-arm and the steering ackerman.

I believe the xray should be the way to go. They have a sport version which is very durable and the drive train will outlast that of the other buggies.
As far as engines go I would go with an o.s. r.g. Its a good bottom end engine, its very easey to tune, and it will hold a tune. Plus its cheap.

Wink Up to $800

Get the Hyper 8 for $420. It is the best quality and is a pro level kit for the money!
Get a high end servo $120 for steering.
Battery $35
Spectrum DX2 Radio with a 550 JR servo for the throttle $170.
OS RG $109

You are set. For bashing you could get a cheaper servo. HiTec makes some cost effective ones.

Good luck

Yeah I suppose you're right...spend more than you will on any of the other kits, and skip right over the 2004 U.S. National Champion, 2004-2005 World Champion, 2005 RC Pro National Champion, or Silver State champion buggies.

Kyosho makes great stuff, don't get me wrong...but the days where you had to shell out Kyosho money for a decent car are OVER.

I had the Jammin RTR it sucked compaired to my Pro Spec.

By the way I saw a post up above about upgrading the Jammin RTR to Pro. That would cost you a CRAZY amount of money! The chassis is also different pluss all the Al. add ons. HUGE $$$$$

Save yourself alot of time. If you want to race hard core DO NOT BUY a RTR!!

for a novice racer, the Jammin RTR is not a bad pick. but for the hardcore racers who expect a lot from their rides, the RTR just doesn't cut it.

In my opinion the Kyosho K3 is one of the best buggies.

I had a Jammin and did very well with it. (I had a few shock seal problems though) but the new shocks are better.
I now have the Kyosho 777sp2. They are both
QUALITY kits. The Kyosho did win the Shoot out
against 5 great cars in the Extreme RC car mag.
including the Jammin. (quote) on this day it's
the Kyosho that we thought would lead to the
most trophies on the shelf".
I also have seen and raced against some of the
Kyosho cars run at our local tracks and at certain moments
said to myself ....Man I dont know what the hell to do to my Jammin
to make it go THAT fast! So I jumped ship and bought a Kyosho
and only time will tell.

Drock,
I think you made the right move going to Kyosho. I dont own a K car but if I wanted to try another buggy other then my GREAT Mugen I would do with Kyosho. They look really good on the track.

nothing wrong at all with the x1 cr rtr fast & handles well. i would put it above any other rtr on the market atm. do i have one? yes i do, am i biased? no, it just handles! & this is without changing anything on the car setup wise. till i made it better

from what i read the 3 top buggies atm are;

1/jammin/hong nor X1CR
2/kyosho
3/mugen

this is all user feedback only & not somthing i have come up with myself.
