    Jato upgrades for on-road racing

    What are the best shocks for the jato? My shocks are shot so i need new ones, and what would be some good springs?
    I also need a new throttle servo, any recommendations? And what about a wing?

    maybe a rebuild of your big bore stockers.....with TiNitride shafts. I like the traxxas springs, but go stiffer for on-road. Especially the front. And stiffer sway bars.

    I got rpm a-arms because the stock ones broke, so no sway bars for me.

    Yes, the stock ones are PLASTIC big bores. You can get the aluminum ones from a Summit/E-Revo for really cheap, they should fit with no issues. Here's a link.

    oooohhhh...I really like those shocks. I didn't know that they were any different. They are aluminum big bores WITH TiNi shafts for 16 bucks. Now those are your shocks. I saw that hotRacing has different lb. springs that will fit these shocks. Just another option......I think they are JT springs.

    I have had my integy shocks for 8 yrs with no problems. I have jumped from roofs run on the beach just about anything you could think of to abuse them with no issues.

    I'm not to sure about integy shocks... Ive heard alot of bad things about them. 70$ is alot for what could be a waste. When i only have 140$ left in my upgrading budget, and i need new brakes and a new servo.

    what happened to your servo? stripped or weak? I was going to replace my servo's b/c they were weak, but thought I would try a 1600mah battery pack first, it worked!!!! It worked great! Now they are fast and strong, and it costed me about $17 for a proTEK pack.

    I wouldn't run without the spring... they'll be forced open way too easy.
