Yep, the truck comes with crime fighters, and the hubs are 17mm so you can use old buggy tires to break in the motor and not kill the tires it comes with, but with the new truck gearing, the car will rev out to quick with buggy tires.
This would be for engine break in only at low speeds. Yes the truck comes with the body pictured, only clear so you can throw that dope paint job on it. Mine is not finished yet, it has to go to my painter.

if it got the Jammin buggy, would it take alot to convert it to the truggy??? just get some axle extenders(proline makes some for their 23 mm wheels), get some new treads/wheels, and change to a larger spur/clutchbell. is that all that is really necessary to make it semi-truggy? it would probably cost less just to get the X1-CRT kit rather than getting all of the necessary parts to convert it....i guess i just answered my own question.

The CRT isn't just a converted buggy..these new purpose-built truggies are much faster than the converted buggies that were popular a year or so ago.

Here are some pics with the body on. This is my practice body, waiting for a new body to send to my painter. Looks ok for one color i guess.

At the Nitro Challenge, Silver State, and ROAR Nationals, the unlimited monster truck class posted the fastest qualifying times, over the 1/8th scale buggies and gas trucks.

I don't know how a drag race between a buggy and a truggy would work out with the same engine. I'd assume that the buggy would accelerate faster but the truck would catch up on top end.

Hi there. My new Jammin truggy is on its way and I was wondering about a motor and pipe for it. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks

rossi p5 ,rbws7 2,os 21 vr i think. the p5 is the best choice in all around performance and realibility imo.

Torquey engines are good. P5, V-Spec, 528XR, etc. Stay away from soft torque engines like the WS7II, you'll have to clutch it too high and it'll be tougher to drive.

Thanks for the input. I was thinking about that picco p-7 evo motor with the jp-1 or 2 pipe. That novarossi 528xr and p5 look pretty good too. What would be a good pipe for those motors. What would be the good and bad over the p5 which is a .21 and the 528xr which is the .28? Thanks again for your help.

I'm running the new RB TM928 engine!! This thing makes the truck scream!! I would go with one of the big motors like a .27 or a .28. They make a ton of torque to move the big trucks. After all, that's why the pros run them.

Well check out the dyno results for the 2 engines from XRC magazine. The 528X puts out 2.02hp and the P5 makes around 1.3-44hp depending on the pipe. So if you want to go really really fast the 528X would be the way to go, or the RB would work great as well since they are based on the 528X.

So is that 528xr a pretty easy motor to tune or is it going to be finicky? What about a pipe? There isn't a limitation to the motor size in the unlimited monster truck class is there? I didn't think there is, "Unlimited", however I'm not 100% sure. Thanks for the help.
