i know i probably should'nt post this yet but... my friend and i have had a little on going rivalry for who has the fastest traxxas car. His car is vxl rustler( which is extremly powerfull!!!). i have a jato 3.3( or which used to be a 3.3). We live at a uncorrected altitude of 3-3100 ft above sea level, with a typical corrected factor of anywhere between 4200 and on some bad days almost 7000ft above sea leval (density altitude). Although this does not affect a brushless car, it really effects any type of internal combustion engine such as the jato. Anyhow, on with the story. The fastest i have truthfully been with any 3.3 is 66mph,, backed up numerous times. The fastest the vxl has been is 70 and 71mph numerous times. These speeds are calculated from a bushnell radar gun backed up with a garmin 101(mounted to the car simutaneously while radaring).These speeds are not something dreamed up by what someone thought they saw! Well, today i showed up with my jato with a little something extra. The something exrtra was a Picco P9R evo 2 .21 conversion! Now for starters i went out with a 19 cb and a 40t spur gears, which puts me at a 2.105 ratio before the trans calculation. First rattle out the box with a fairly decent tune i clocked 74mph. A little more tunning,,,, i clocked 76mph,, which i backed up once. I decided to change the pipe to one i had modded myself(ofna .28 pipe). Had to add a considerable amount of fuel on the high speed and ...... bam..... 80mph even!!! Started getting dark, not mention the fact that i accidentally hit my nephew just right after that pass(which i feel horrible about, but we think he is gonna be ok) so we loaded up and went home. I guess this post is for all of you nitro boys out there discouraged with what the brushless cars are capable of. WE GOT ONE ON THEM TODAY!!!!! This is my box stock version of this motor. I have another that is a brand new Ab Drag modded Picco P9R EVO 3 .21 sitting in the box. I look forward to trying it with a couple differnt gear ratios. Hoping i can swing 90mph some day. I will have a vid of these passes by next weekend. KEEP SNIFFIN NITRO !!!!!
