I would have to say ,like some of the other fellows, get the rig your local track/hobby shop supports ! This is crittical for a good day of racing or watching . Personally I prefer the Kyosho or a Mugen as I have both and both are AWSOME machines ! Both require weekly matainance, one it is just plastic parts ,and the other requires constant fluid changes ,so you can take your pick .

Won't go wrong with either...But I would get a SP2...once you find a good set-up for it..and you know how to drive good....it wll fly.....they win at my local track almost all the time....

i have driven both and own an X1-CR. both are equally capable on jumps and durability. the X1 carries more speed through the corners than the SP2, but the SP2 requires less tuning to get it to handle superbly. the parts availability is great for the X1, while the SP2 is not even available anywhere yet and parts are more expensive. most importantly, the X1 is the best value around, a fully optioned race kit with race rubber for only about $500, about $280 less than the SP2. so i would suggest the X1, your choice though.

I've driven both as well , and parts where I live are non- exsistant for the X1 but are for the SP2 ,and as for prices ? I think they are about equal unless you get your parts on E-Bay ? Sp2 or 1 handles insainely well and the only other car I have driven that can match the K car is a Mugen ,and they are VERY hard to get to turn tight . But if your area is good for X1 parts then go for it ,it is a good car for the $.

I disagree on the X-1 being able to carry more corner speed.I used to have a X-1,and it couldn't carry the speed of my SP2.

Parts are easier to find for a Jammin.If you go K-car,you better pre-order parts,but Kyosho's are so tough you don't need a lot of parts.

Price is the thing against the K-car.Big $$$$$$ difference,but we are a dealer.

Corner speed is pretty much usually all set-up. I'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who drove my X-1 buggy and said it didn't roll through the middle of the corner with the best of 'em.

There may be reasons to buy a SP2 in place of a Jammin' car but corner speed isn't one of them. Neither car has proven to be significantly "faster" than the other and while one may suit a driver's style better than the other, being able to dial one in to match the track speed of the other is usually a few adjustments away.

I know that big races place a huge part in choosing which car you will buy..but I think the race results in 2006 will look a little bit better to the Jammin' side of things :-)

Good point.

I like both cars ,but the Sp2 seems to fit my more aggressive driving style.

The Jammin has some pros over the 777,and the 777 has some on the X-1.Both are really nice rides.

at this point i will probably take X-1PRO even though kyosho 777 sp2 has better overall parts quality and craftmanship but i dont like the fact that they change a new buggy like changing underwares , in the great world of RC we all want to have the lastest equipment, the newest technology but for some of us who can't keep up with kyosho's pace Jammin become a logical alternative.

How does Kyosho have better overall parts when its still using phillips screws and casted steering knuckles? It doesnt seem to have the best plastic compared to all the top level buggies (Jammin, Mugen, etc) on the planet either. The most advantage that Kyosho has over other companies is its factory drivers.
