    New Traxxas JATO Chassis!



    "This new lightened 7075-T6 aluminum chassis for the Jato is machined
    from the highest grade 7075-T6 aluminum alloy to make it more that 40%
    stronger than the stock chassis. Extra material is removed from the top
    of the chassis to reduce weight by 10% when compared to stock chassis. Its titanium anodized aluminum finish and laser etched Jato logo give this chassis the high tech look racers crave.

    Features:

    High grade, 7075-T6 aluminum alloy
    40% stronger than the stock Jato chassis
    Less flex improves handling response
    More than 10% lighter than the stock chassis
    Fully countersunk on the bottom
    High-tech Titanium-anodized finish
    Laser-etched Jato logo"

    No word on pricing and availability.

    Ohhhhhh, Ahhhhhhh. :-D

    Who is manufacturing the new chassis and when is it avaliable? Is there going to be any optional colors?

    It would be nice if they could make the top part of the chassis aluminum as well (broke the stock one) and the chassis braces up front, bottom and top. Would also be cool to see aluminum side dirt gaurds.
    wanna race?

    Traxxas is manufaturing it. Aside from that, I have no clue.

    I don't know if this is old news or what, but I found out that Tower is selling it for $42, and it will be out Late Dec. TowerHobbies

    Sorry to bring back old news, I broke some parts and was looking on my parts list. This is listed as # 5522X and sells for $35 from Traxxas. But, my question is does any one know if a chassis top plate is being made from titanium or aluminum? I can't find one.

    That would work too. Do you know where i can get one? I busted the bracket the holds my roll hoop. Only way to fix it is get new upper chassis plate. Don't know how long the super glue will hold! Next thing I'm buying after this is a roll bar!

    Try some high strength Epoxy...that stuff works MUCH better then the super glue does.
