    My Drag jato build. Nothing special but its mine!

    Hey all, was given a Jato by a friend to do some work on it and long story short he didn't want to fix it and gave it to me. I have been going through it slowly and still have a ways to go on it. This is just to show progress so far and progress from this point. Any tips will be appreciated as I am new to Jato's. But I love building all types of RC's so i figured i'd give it a shot. Thanks for looking.

    This is how the car looked when i got it lol.


    This was just a mockup of the Lamberto Collari Onroad .21 and THS 1/8 scale pipe on the new chassis.


    Once the new parts started going on.


    This is how she currently sits with the centax clutch fitted still waiting on a few new "special" parts lol.

    Amainhobbies.com has them. Just look up panther products under manufacturers then look up 10th scale truck tires. I believe I'm running the soft compound.

    It's alive. Still have a long way to go tune wise since the motor has sat for about 3 years now. Should be fun if I don't sell it first. Now that the project is nearing completion I'm losing interest lol.

    The slicks are rubber. They grow a good bit but have pretty good traction. And they last quite a while. You can tape them to stop the tire growth at speed.
