Arrow 9.5 Pro vs Jammin X1CR

This confuses me. The 9.5 Pro was not a top seller like the Hyper 7 was. The Jammin X1CR is released and it becomes a top seller while the Hyper 8 lags in popularity. It seems that neither model changed that much between old and new.

What did Hong Nor do to the 9.5 Pro to make it a top seller in the Jammin product line? From what I've been told...they have mainly reduced the weight and changed the steering geometry.

The biggest difference is that the X1CR actually handles good, unlike the 9,5 which was basically a poor design. The X1 is also a completely different car in every way from the 9.5, they do not share any parts at all. Essentially though the X1 is just like a Kyosho buggy, but thats a good thing since Kyosho has the most successful buggy line in history.

This is funny , WheelNut or right and whats funny is that THEY are the most winningest 1/8scale buggy company around , They do not use the lay down servo. I remeber when the first buggy had that and everyone was like Look how much the COG is is reduced!

But Kyosho being the TOP company they say pffft , we don't need no stinkin lay down servo.

I like the Jammin and Mugen and of course the Kyosho . ( Kyosho is just a tad over priced.)

Wheelnut...why do you feel the 9.5 was a poor design? What were the flaws that were fixed in the X1?

Weight, for one thing.

Diffs are MUCH smaller in the Jammin
Chassis is narrower in the Jammin
Arms are longer in the Jammin
More downtravel in the Jammin
Shocks are longer in the Jammin
CG is Lower in the Jammin

pretty much everything to make it a racer and not a basher.....which the 9.5 was very good at....

Pretty much what I thought and have the intentions for its use. I'm not a racer but I want to give it a shot this summer. I figure the 9.5 Pro is one of the toughest buggies that I can abuse while learning the art of racing. I think the 9.5 Pro will hold up to the abuse better than most buggies...plus parts are cheap. Maybe I'm over thinking my buggy selection to start racing with.

If I don't like racing...then I still have a great basher.

She's CNC everything now with a VSPEC/T-2050 combo. I also have a two speed that I'm dieing to try with that motor and pipe...but I'm going to keep the torsen in it for now.

Added CNC front tower, rear tower, front plate, front lower arm holder, and servo slider plate. Hopefully the chassis soon. There is nothing more CNC that can be added.

Then added JR Z8800T and Z8800S servos, and OS VSPEC and T-2050 pipe. Also have a OS .21 RG and JP2 to get used to the buggy first. Running it with JR Z-1 and Spektrum Pro.

This thing is now beyond cherry. Almost afraid to run it as I know I'll break something.

You should send me some setup sheets that you used. socal is no longer on OFNA.com so I've lost an awesome resource for the 9.5.
