I was disappointed to see that as well, however the shocks are relatively easy to replace, unlike modifying the weight balance or steering design. I like the forward weight bias of the hyper, but would prefer the c-hub steering of the jammin. This is not going to be an easy decision.

Plastic shocks??? That would be bad if Jammin down grades. The crt.5 and mini st both haver plastic upper shock eyelets, but the bodies are aluminum.

What is common/different between the jammin and hyper as far as the drive-train components go? The new hypers are having problems with bending dogbones and CVDs, so I hope the jammin comes with stronger ones.

Yes the hyper has problems with bending dogbones. Even the hyper mini had the same problem, possibly even the CRT.5. One of the issues withe hyper is that under full compresion, the dogbone is bottoming out/going fully inside the inner drivecup causing binding. This is when the axle begins to twist/bend. The easy solution is to put an oring or 2mm of fuel line on the shock shaft to act as a bump stop, preventting the binding.

As long as the axle isn't bent too bad, it is fine to use still. I've been running the same slightly bent axles on my 1/8 with no problems.

This seems like the kind of problem that a company who is serious about selling their product to racers would fix... Taking away suspension travel doesn't sound like a desirable option.

Any word on what the pricing is going to be for the Jammin? I have a feeling most people interested in a 1/10 4x4 SC truck will have a Ofna or Traxxas by the time these come out in January.

Ehhhhh, the Slash was available for months before the SC10 came out, doesn't seem to have hurt it's sales. Lot's of racers will wait for the Jammin.

Since they have some distinct differences, there will def be some folks that wait to get the Jammin. However, unless they swap for metal shocks, the Hyper still seems like a better deal.

Sure does. Anybody know if the suspension arms sill be interchangeable? i.e. will I be able to swap the c-hubs from the jammin in place of the pillow ball front end on the ofna?

It would add another $60-$100 for the aluminum shocks..I'd probably go with ofna, instead..
