    Wheelie Bar no more

    I'm new to the Jato, on my first real run just for fun, I slid sideways into a curb, hitting the wheelie bar off.
    So mid-mount battery it is. I have a battery pack from a revo I have lying around.

    Has any one else broken their wheelie bar off like this?

    A couple hours later and I'm back in commission.

    FYI, the stock electronics are wired to use the battery pack. The wire to connect to the charger is tucked into the reciever box. You have to thread the charger wire through the receiver box and into the charging receiver.

    @madHoker911: I'm using the optional rear bumper. The wheelie bar cannot be used with it. Either will secure the a-arm pins.
