    Hold up! You said T-Maxx TZ I hope you did'nt order the one with the pull start because, if you did the carb(rotary) will not work with your jato.

    Ok? I got that much but, what version of the .18tz? There are four different versions of this engine which are; 18TZ(P)-T, 18TZ-T, 18TZ(S)-T, and 18TZ-TX. Only one of these engines has a slide carb, thats the 18TZ(P) all of the other engines have carbs that would'nt make installing that specific engine in your Jato a practical choice. I'm sorry for laughing but, it was just the way you worded things I guess.

    If it said T-Maxx drop in, it probably was an 18tz-tx the pull start version because the T-Maxx has no opening for a bump start it would have to be a pull start motor, and sorry to say that engine will not work in your truck due to the carb. Your gonna have to tell them to order the 18tz(P), it does'nt have a pullstart it has to be bump started but, it has the most power of all the TZs'.

    You will need the traxxas sg nut for the pilot shaft a spacer for the clutchbell traxxas also carries this part and three small dubro washers to space your spur gear out. I can get the part numbers for you asap and post back later. You picked an awesome motor dude dont let anyone tell you different, this motor is with out a doubt the strongest smallblock you can buy.
