    Seen that vid - that Revo is running an OS. The Buku pipe for Revo/small block traxxas (ie: 3.3) was actaully developed on 3.3 enigines - many of them.. I know b/c I spoke with the owner of Buku directly the other day. If you have a 3.3 installed, the Buku will add a lot of value to your initial purchase of the Jato - without buying another engine. the Jato is already fast anyway, so if its cash to worry about - then don't upgrade anything.
    I personally run a hard-coated THS large bore stinger pipe on my Jato - made for the 3.3.

    that frist vid is my jato. yes it has a bigger carb in that vid, since then i have switched back to the stock carb and it run better and is faster with the stock carb. this is on my unmoded 3.3. on a full mod 3.3 the big bore may be faster. but testing after that vid the stock works better for me. so yes most the power incress in that vid was fro mmy buku
