Jammin is gonna be closer to the Losi because of the shrunk down 1/8 scale design and the low center of gravity.It is like comparing apples and oranges with a peach tho, to be honest!!!

Thanks for the help. My Losi is so planted and the Slash seems to bounce around a lot more on a rough track. I'm just hoping the Jammin feels planted like the Losi and not bouncy like the Slash.

I agree, closer to the Losi. Last year the Jammin and Hyper10 trucks seemed to be the most popular. I loved the way the Jammin handled, I just was disappointed on the front end durability. A slash in the right hands can hang no problem, but unless it's upgraded drive train it can lead to issues. I never had one issue with the Jammin CVD's, diff, pins, nothing. But the Losi is HANDS down a better build and beefier truck. Still the Jammin is good, its like Bmain said, closer to comparing a peach to an apple... Same fruit, different flavor.

Want to buy some modified e-revo pins?

well, I am finished with the race track that having a heavier truck was benifical, well now I'm heading to a track that lighter is better, so time to put the light weight parts back on,

I am experimenting with taking off the plastic piece that sits under the diff. going for a little bit of weight reduction, but most of all the lower COG, has anyone else done this with the stock chassis and noticed any benifit??

I figure it's at least got to help a little even tho it's only like 4mm lower.
would love to do somthing with the battery tray but don't have a way to shave it down properly and evenly. I need a good sander or something.

I've driven all three. The slash is great for bashing (durability) but maintenance wise it's a nightmare (dirt/rocks getting into center bearing area).

Jammin handles great but it's built on a 1/12 scale platform (cry.5 truggy). I broke a lot of parts (my son does also), mostly a-arms.

The Losi is top notch once you get the diffs worked out, well shock towers too. I'm still on my original arms (6mo now) and the thing is bulletproof. I have all these extra brand new parts that I've never used.

I vote for the Losi all day long. The platform is so easy to work on and tune. I am actually going to sell our Jammin and get another Losi for my son.

I took mine off and then took the dremmel and a cutting disk and removed material under the spur gear for clearence. I didn't have to cut all the way through, but it's very thin there. No issues so far and now the drive shafts sit much lower and closer to if not level.
