Lots of guys at my local track race 1/8 nitro buggies, so im thinking of asking for one for christmas. I want something relatively cheap, is the OFNA Jammin X1x Sport any good?

i would reccomend any of those 2. They are both great cars. But if you want to race you will need a .21 size engine which the picco has but the x1x has a .28 that is too big than allowed.

I vote 100% on the x1x, because I can find easy parts support for the jammin line of buggies. And if you really want to race, then you can upgrade it with jammin X2 Cr parts. But a downside is that most buggies other than associated and Losi have almost no parts support at LHS'. So I looked for parts support on my number 1 online shopping place, Amainhobbies, and the have parts support for the jammin line of buggies but none for the MBX line of buggies, which is what the OFNA Picco buggy is. And the Jammin buggies are more of a racing line of buggies, not the MBX...and I don't think you have to worry about the .28 in the jammin because most sportsman class or beginner class racing don't have engine size regulations.

So in short my pick is the Jammin X1X because of great upgrade potential and parts support online.

I'm looking mostly for racing. I'm still stuck on that Picco buggy because I've heard good things from picco and I've heard the jammin has a crappy pull start and I don't have money to put towards a starter box

Cool, that track is real tiny though...that is the hobby shop I use. I live actually live about 5mins from there. But the place where I am going to race is a wee bit further laugh.gif.
If you shop there, might I ask what you're opinion on the shop is?

But like I said my thing on the Jammin is the parts support and racing upgrade ability. Being to use parts directly from the X2 kind of sells me on that kit, and also being that the Jammin line of buggies are really race oriented as opposed to most of the ofna buggies excluding the hyper series. And if the pull start begins to be a problem you can get a roto start backplate and a corld-less drill t o start it up.

Wow! you are very lucky to live so close! the track is pretty small, but its perfect for my rusty. thats true i havent thought about using a roto start, im starting to like the X1x now haha! do you think there is much of a difference in fuel effeciency between the .21 and the .28?

A .28 will have lower fuel effeciency over a .21.
And my opinion on MM hobby is not in the highest of standards...their owner is a jerk and some of the guys there don't seem to be as knowledgeable as they could. And when I ask for some thing they have to ask me if i'm sure that is what I want, and I know damn well what I want...sorry got a little angry there laugh.gif.

And also, do you have any sort of budget? If you can spend a little more, a kit vehicle or the associated RC8 rtr may be other choices.

Yeah the owner is a jerk, but the track keeper is nice, and they have a pretty good inventory for my needs. I'm on a pretty tight budget, but I may be able to get up to $400 MAYBE. I was looking at the d8 because I've heard alot of good things about them. However, if I got a kit it would be a while befor I got it going because of limited income (mostly christmas money) but I guess it would be worth it.

Yeah if thats the case, I would go for a RTR kit to get up and running right away. I did the same thing with my D8 and I was very unhappy for a while til' I got an engine and servos and stuff.

I think I would be better off getting the jammin, then just getting a new engine for it right away, and selling the stock one on ebay to help pay for it.

Yeah, that could work. There are plenty of great engines out there that selling the jammin engine would put you alot closer to.
