    New Exhaust Idea for all Nitro RC's

    So I can assume I am not the only JATO 3.3 enthusiast that gets tired of the entire back half of the left side of the truck getting completely covered in oil deposit after a long or short run. I started thinking and looking to see if there was kind of like a cover that could be mounted on the side of the JATO that would allow for full flow of exhaust while directing the smoke downwards or at least in a direction that would allow the truck to stay more clean. I know i could purchase a rear exhaust mod but I think it would be cool to have something that could use the stock exhaust system while still keeping the JATO clean.

    If anyone has heard of something like this let me know because I would like to make/purchase one.

    Thank you for your time!

    Electric is cheaper but Nitro can rumble.

    Do a search on ebay for "exhaust deflector". Lots of colors to choose from for around $5.

    Point it at the ground and the side of your truck will be virtually oil free.
