if you crash/hit something pretty good on the front end you probly will break the bulkhead or the top plate (seams to be quite a bit of flex in the front)...or the a-arms are most likely to break...
must haves for the jato 3.3 (IMO that is)....
RPM wide front bumper...will absorb allot more of an impact as the stock one
RPM front and rear a-arms...stronger than stock and still have flex in them which will aid in preventing next weakest part to break...(aluminum arms too stiff...IMO...they just transfer impact to the next weakest part causing it to break)edit: sway bars do not work w/rpm a-arms...i zip tied mine on
New Era top plate brace...prevents top plate from breaking...(works wonders IMO)
New Era bottom skid plate...makes front of chassis stiffer to aid in preventing the bulkhead from breaking...(note: if using rpm front bumper the bottom of the bumper must be modified to use them together)
OFNA fail safe...keeps that supper fast jato from running away from you and causing costly repairs due to signal interference or weak batteries
i have all the above installed on my 3.3...and haven't had and broken parts from bashing around or hitting things since i've had them all installed...

a rechargable flat pack battery is a good upgrade, it can be mounted in the rear or the mid. battery box and when fully charged no only will the servos work better but it will last for hours of driving, also get some extra glow plugs.

after some good racing/jumps and so on, the shock towers are something else you should look into buying soon. get some extra's or maybe go with some aluminum ones. i think you're actually better off with the stock plastics though so your dif cover in the back wont crack when your jato fall's on its behind
