I don't think that Hong Nor is taking chances with this buggy like other companies did, they will make it right before it gets out and it will be a very good rig..

Gosh I want to say very soon, I'm shooting for end of Nov. from the top it looks just like any other buggy but from the pics before and you really have to look at them there are alot of stout changes, Hong Nor is really going to make buggy strong and beautiful. I'm sure the changes they are doing are for good reason.

Thumbs up

Got to say it looks really good. I'm thinking if its going to be in the states then whoever sold or does sell ofna/jammin parts will more than likely sell parts for this too. I cant wait to see one in front of me and see how it performs. It looks like its doing really well where its being tested.

OK,

We at TEAM TWF8 have a X3 Sabre for review.
This car might not look SO NEW and inovative but if you are in offroad racing and racing itself new does not mean better.
HN did a good job and looked around other cars and put the best in this car.
Added some simple things of their own.

Jay Halsey is the designer of the previous X1 and X2 cars for the HN company.
Since 1-2011 there is no contract anymore between HN and Jay.
So all is now done by HN engineers under the leadership of HN owner David Wu.
Ofna owns the Jammin name.
Ofna was importing HN (under the Jammin label) and Hobao to the USA.
They now will import HN under its own name and Hobao the USA if I m mnot msitaken.

We will see what will be come of the car.............

As soon as the review is up I let you guys know.

Regards, Paco Raap

I think the car looks good. It DOES look modern unlike what some on here say. It looks like it fits right in with the current crop of "new age" buggies. I can't wait to see some reviews of it. I might pick one up just to try it out with my losi cars.

first look at the prototype I tought it looked crapy as hell
but this final version looks very good indeed

It features secured center driveshafts, 808 suspension, nice towers, a 3 mm chassis angled up at the rear too, tick arms, 4 cnc toe/kick -up plates tunable with inserts, in-line JQ brake links, HN shocks, 2 cnc braces...nice
