    ide ditch those imex tires man..
    they looks absolutely horrible for on road..
    maybe supermoto but not plain on road..
    get 1.8th scale foams and get the new era 17mm adapter for them
    get some SUPER heavy weight 4 ur diff...
    and try to put as mush carbon fiber on as u can(if ur serious)
    i.e. chassis is a good start

    Yea, I agree get the foams and new era adapters for them. I would ditch the t-maxx (i think that is what it is) bumper and get the rpm bumper for the jato. I would have the exaust comeing out the left instead of behind of the car even though that way keeps it cleen it looks odd. It looks like it is set up for dirt draggs imo. Oh yea get lighter springs you are less likely to wheelie.

    if i point it away then when i get a wheelie on the wheelie bar the deflector hits the ground so with it the way it is it stays away from the ground. and i will be making a cf top plate soon when i find some carbon fiber but until then im racing it like this and im not sure if i put it in the links but im getting an integy graphite brake disk right now i dont even have brakes lol but who needs brakes when your racing lol thats what the sand pits for

    Yea, if you flip you mess up your exaust, when ever I do high speed runs I wheelie. I don't know how traxxas thinks the jato will do 65. Onece I hit about 45-50 it flips, how do you not filp? I am planning to get a new era wheelie bar but I don't think that will stop me from fliping

    lighter springs, and shock oil. it'll allow more squat and less lift up front.

    How are we ruining the thread? Drag raceing is about not trying to not wheelie and speed. So this is on the thread.
