    Question Best and NEEDed Jato 3.3 upgrades!

    I've been looking at these forums for a few days now and have seen nothing on the upgrades Jato truly needs. I've heard that aluminum shock towers are a must and I've already come to the conclusion that the anacondas should never even smell the fumes from the nitro.. I run Dirt Hawgs and nothing else. I know aluminum front arms are a no go due to the obvious fact that if the aluminum arms are connected to an aluminum chassis... welll.... Picture hitting a tree with those things connected.. So anyone who knows what theyre doing, please feel free to give your upgrade advise =) Pictures are cool too, but I'm not looking for shelf queens, as mine is not and never will be.

    Hot-racing dual brakes was a must for me.
    Jato 3.3, Revo .28 JL Max, Nitro Stampede 3.3

    i agree with the dual brakes, also a nice pipe is a good upgrade in my opinion the ths racing pipe is awesome. maybe get a 5 cell flat pack for the middle compartment to center the weight a good set of tires and i think you set.

    It depends on what your looking for. The best upgrades you can do is change the pipe, carb,airfilter and clutch

    Dirt hawgs are a good start. Upgrade CVD's. Stock ones strip quick from too much torque. I also prefer 58T Spur with 20T clutch bell. More bottom end and wheelies all day. Also put roll cage on mine. Added more weight but I'm a basher not a racer. Saved my car more than once. Depends on what you want to do with it.

    RPM a arms all the way around, RPM front bumper(saved me the other day when i hit a sign post lol). I run badlands strictly offroad, trenchers on/offroad and foams for strictly onroad. for the stock pipe if u dont want to buy a new one, you can drill the stinger out to .25 in which is what i did. I run 20/40 revo gearing.

    Awesome feedback guys! Thank you. Started replacing with some RPM parts.. But I hear that a few aluminum upgrades are good. I know not to upgrade the front a-arms with aluminum, but is there anything that is a must for this upgrade?
