So I read a few posts back a little closer...

If you want to use "standard" 1/10 SC tires, you need to purchase a different body?

I'm patiently waiting for someone with more first hand knowledge than myself to tell me Jammin didn't decide to create their own "tire standard."

Exactly, especially with all the tire choices they offer (1)...Why not just have a standard? It worked for AE, HPI, Losi, Traxxas, Ofna...

I'm not sure. If you look here: http://www.nitrohouse.com/catalog/in...05_426&&page=2

Standard SCT tires are an optional/hop-up part.

I wouldn't knock anything about it until you've tried it... These guys don't appear to be stupid and I would think that everything they put on the truck is there for a reason.

From what I understand, the truck is narrower than the others, so a different body wouldn't fit well. Someone who has one could measure to be sure.

The Jammin is an inch narrower than the Ofna according to the specs on Tower.

Actually it's .5 inch. Jammin is 10.5" and the Ofna is 11". Thats as simple as wheel offset. 1/4 inch on either side makes them the same. Since we dont know what the offset is thats all it could be. Wish we could get some measurements from those that have them. Also, is that a body measurement or wheel measurement? The body could be 1/4 narrower on either side for the jammin.

the shocks on the .5 were on the small side and it appears they didn't change for this one....the upper arm links tend to bend and take out the arm with it....Plastic Anchorman common are you serious.

next would be the Excessively overpriced hopup's....seriously.... 100$ for a steering rack... and the alum knuckles and hubs are More expensive then some of the 1/8 version's which make's no sense....and to add to that All parts aren't available Everywhere Except from Nitro House.....hrmm...any one else find that Fishy....I sure do.

Arms on the small side for a 1/10 scale truck? looking at the arms both upper and lower I would have to say they look a bit more substantial than the Ofna Hyper. Also, have you seen the drag link on the Ofna...it's a wire rod.

I will agree that the option parts are WAY overpriced (whats up Jammin/Nitrohouse?). It would be nice to keep the option parts competitivly priced with other manufacturers.

As far as it's durability, we will see soon enough now that it's in the hands of the consumer.

a wire link style anchorman is surely better then a plastic one...but why cant they just make a mini alum link like the 1/8 version's...make's no sense to have a plastic one.


I Own a .5....I know how crappy the front upper arms are.....its why you swap them out for Ti rods and ball ends on both sides....i guess with the big bumper's n what not the front end would be a little more durable vs the .5
