I won't have my truck till wendesday. I assume an sc10 body would fit the jammin and allow clearance for fullsize sc tires. If so I'll get to paintin. Nitrohouse listed hyper 10sc wheels as a part for the jammin does anyone know if the offset is the same?

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

I agree that the plastic drag link is garbage. However they do offer an aluminum version available for $15. IMO it should come standard, but $15 isn't too bad.

Back when I had a .5 the only durability issue I had was the plastic shock cap inserts. I think the .5 is a pretty good platform to base these trucks on. IMO it's a lot stronger than other 1/10 size trucks.

Interesting..never knew they had an alum version.......i ended up making a carbon anchorman and called it a day.....i also had issues with the shocks..stupid plastic caps......I feel as though the losi 10T is a significantly better designed mini truggy vs the .5

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.
Parts only from Nitrohouse? Not when the internet is working. Where you been?

Concerning plastic components. I've never broken a drag link, knuckle or hub. I did replace some plastic items with CNC, but it was probably not cost effective.

check out ALL the parts that Nitro House doesn't have pics for...like all the bumper's and Strictly SCRT10 stuff...you wont find it anywhere...google the part #'s and it comes up with Nothing nadda squat.

if you didn't break anything you got lucky to say the least....give that anchorman a flex..you'll see how easily it could fail....steering knuckles and hubs are another somewhat weak point if you ask me.

R2, your right about the stock wheels/tires they worked well on the track.

Yes the Jammin is smaller than the Slash, Blitz, etc.

I got my truck on the track today and I was very impressed. It handled and felt more like a smaller/lighter 1/8 scale buggy. My truck was probably over powered, but I am used to it (ran the same setup in my CRT.5) and was able to control it. But a smaller motor on 2s would be lighter so I may try that setup. There were several new Slash 4x4's, 1/8 buggy/truggies and regular 1/10 SC trucks on the track (open practice). The RTR Slash 4x4 was pretty nice and it was close in speed/handling to the Jammin on a small track. It was kind of fun to be able to hang with some of the 1/8 buggy/truggies. Until one took exception and blasted me in one of the high speed sweepers and took out my rear bumper. I had so much fun with my Jammin my SC10 never left the car and my 1/8's barely got used. The wheels/tires (smaller size) worked out ok on the local track but the lack of selection/standardization is a negative in my opinion. The bumper plastic is a little brittle and I broke the left/rear bumper (rammed by a truggy) and upper front bumper ( I let several friends try it out and some of them were not used to the power/speed and there were a few lawndarts) so not really the trucks fault, and nothing else broke.

Guys i need some help!!!. This is my very first electric and my Jammin will be here on the 23rd.. With that said i donnt know what setup up to run. I was going to get the Novak Havok 6.5 brushless esc combo, but i read in this thread that some people are only getting 10 minutes of runtime off the packs.. Is this correct? I thought lipo bats would extend run times? Another guy stated to run the 1/8 scale setup and the runtimes will improve.. I am so confused. I just want to run my jammin longer than 10-15 minutes per battery. Will the 1/8 scale motor and esc combo be overkill for this truclk? Has anyone tried it yet? thanks for listening..

I dropped my buddies Blitz body on top of the Jammin and there was may be 1/4" of space all the way around. So I think other bodies should fit.
