After dumping tons of money into a 4x4 Slash I finally thru in the towel and got 2 Hyper 10sc's. The Jammin is great as long as its a smooth track and the driver never crashes. The hyper can take some punishment and still be very fast. The Slash, well lets not even get into that one. If you don't own a Slash right now do yourself a favor and don't buy one. They suck monkey nutts.

i think it'll be between the hyper and jammin.. but looking at the two, what's the difference?

I own and have raced both.

I prefer the Hyper for my driving style since it's a tad more planted with a wider wheel footprint and is a little more forgiving than the Jammin. It can be pushed harder in the twisties/rough stuff without getting upset as easy but in stock configuration the Jammin is more nimble and better balanced in the air. Steering mods on the Hyper even up the steering between the two. It boils down to how much work and changes you want to make and what your driving style is. If you're good at finesse driving, or run on smaller high-traction indoor type tracks the Jammin would probably suit you better. For larger or more open tracks the Hyper is, in my experience, a better option and more durable.

One difference is the Ofna uses a pillowball type hub (like Mugen) and the Jammin uses more of a traditional style. I have the Ofna and absolutely love it. It is def. one of my favorites to run, along with 1/8th electric and nitro. At my track there are quite a few of all the 4x4's and everyone seems to be happy with what they are running. Although, I would stay clear of the slash. Just my opinion.

I thought that the Ofna & Jammin were 1/8 scale and a Slash is 1/10 ....

I run a 4wd Slash PE w/ a Tekin RX8 2050 buggy combo. In my opinion it
is a no brainer .... my Slash is Bashable and quite nice on the track . Having no problem's keeping up w/ the other guy's. I have even practiced w/ some 1/8 scale buggies and was competive along side them.
If your planing to race, I would get a Platinum Slash then go from thier.

I want the simplest 4x4 that's forgiving with the driving and durable. I don't like the tinker. I just want to put on the track and race. Tinkering is for my other class.

what about converted 4X4s? I've heard of the Kyosho DRT being converted to electric and Associated 1/8th scales turned in to 4x4s.

I really hope more companys come out with more 4x4s. I'm kinda holding out till I see one I really like.
