    I Am Getting a Jato 3.3!!!

    Hi Guys..........

    I am gonig to be getting a Jato 3.3 in the next week or two.

    I have a couple of questions.

    1. What are good upgrades to get?

    2. What parts should I stock up on that break a lot?

    3. Does it come stock with a Rechargeable Flat Pack or AA's?

    4. How do you guys like the Jato 3.3?

    5. Stupid Question! Is there a 4wd conversion?

    Thanks Guys

    1: RPM a arms, some better tires
    2: Dont hit anything, and it wont break
    3: Got mine used so not sure, but I think its AA's
    4: I love mine!! It will pretty much wheelie on demand, and having it wheelie in second is a sight.
    5: No. Nowhere to put it. Its a very tight set up and would require way to many mods to consider it. 4X4 jato = Revo

    Edit to #1 A failsafe , unless you have a good radio with a built in. this will help with # 2

    I agree. I've had my Jato for less than a month and I'm on my 5th set of control arms. Geesh.

    Oh course, this weekend was a killer.

    I would get the flat it will fit in both places, the back for traction and the middle for steering

    I've had mine 6 months or so. I've sent it cart wheeling down the road many times. Aside from body damage the only thing I've ruined was the cooling head (stripped glow plug) and that was my fault. Make sure you have a nice sized area to run in.
    How many opinions will you fascists censor?

    Has anyone try,ld to use the AA's and zip tying them to the front shock tower ? i found the AA,s are lighter and if there mounted up front it gives you better steering control
