I believe the ProLine SC tires fit these wheels.

What have you guys been breaking? I am undecided between the scrt or the hyper. They both seem to handle amazing with the proper setup (watched 2 vids of Bradley and Kortz battling). Any issues with shock towers? I like how the Hypers is alum., but is it needed? Please give honest answers as I would with you. I understand that they break, so I just want to know what spares should be in my box.

Thanks,
Porty

i bought enough spare parts to almost build another car. nowhere local has parts for these so i wanted to be ready. to date ive broke the front bumper. that happened on the first pack. thats it. we are running indoor in n.e. ohio but the one indoor track is pretty good size, and im no pro driver. i have crashed it pretty good, lawn darted it from a good height, this is one tough little truck! its not 1/8 tough but none the less i havent broke it. in the same time on the same tracks ive broke a couple a-arms on my b44 from simular crashes that my jammin has held up to. now that ive spent the money on parts i doubt ill ever break anything, thats the way it works i guess. hopefully something will wear out so i can put some of them to good use.

I know what you mean. But honestly, I rather buy it and never have to use it.

I heard about boiling the front bumper...

Thanks for the info Jimmy. The 3700kv 5.5 is probably the highest kv I'd want to run on 3S, but if it can still hang on 2S it sounds like the right choice seeing as some tracks are 2S and some allow 3S.

I have broke two things on my truck thus far;

Front bumper upper support (It takes a major beating I was surprised that it lasted that long)

and a right rear hub carrier. I landed completely wrong and it snapped.

Shock towers are available in aluminum (CRT.5 hop-up), FYI. The only thing I've broke is front c-hub, which also available in aluminum.

The only real known breakage issue on the jammin truck is the front bumper support. Other than that it's a very tough truck. Obviously things will break if you hit something or land wrong like Racecrafter said.

I actually think the aluminum shock towers are a negative. Lots of guys have been bending them on the hyper. The aluminum they use is pretty thin. Seems like the jammin plastic ones would take a serious hit to break. Jammin also sells aluminum towers if you really wanted a set. I believe someone even makes carbon fiber ones.

I talked to Proline today to find out when they are coming out with the offset rims for the scrt and the tech guy (who is sponsored by Jammin) said that they are running slash front rims all the way around. Are any of you running these and if so how do you like them. Thanks.

I run Slash front off set wheel adapters and are the perfect off set if you change the body OR put 4* camber front and 3* rear.

Reading the thread might help.

If you look back at the last couple of pages there are a few posts regarding people running slash front wheels. So yeah some guys are running them. Personally I have slash rears all around.

Doug,

Jumpin the SCRT takes a bit of mid air on throttle to keep the nose up.

I run about 10 clicks of throttle trim while on the track.
