Bullet proof Jato...well a little bit anyway.
Hi all, I was recently talking about upgrading my gearing to the Hardened steel, so I thought I would post a couple pics after the rebuild I finished today. I know you can not see inside the transmission but I replaced everything inside with the steel gearing, outside steel spur and steel clutch bell. I upgraded the clutch to the MIP, thinking about the rb mods clutch "the last clutch you will ever buy" lol if the MIP doesn't hold up to the hardened steel clutch bell. I cleaned this thing so much that I even put vaseline on the rubber boots of the drive shafts ext. Anything rubber will last longer with petrolium Jelly on it. I am looking forward to some high speed runs with my jaco foams and the body came from a guy on ebay who buys them and paints them. He did a better job than Zeikiel racing who I purchased one from. Let me know what you think. The only change I would make at this point would be to put the steel CVD's on but I have one concern about them, they have two different rubber boots, one at the diff, one at the wheel. I have been told that they start to fall apart after about 8 months. At 40 bucks a set, I think I would rather just replace the stock ones as the one rubber boot wears out. The rotating mass isn't that much of a difference. I even cleaned the header with a light sanding to remove the wear and discoloration, I am a little OCD.[IMG][URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/545/bluepic3.jpg/][IMG]http://imageshack.us/a/img545/5821/bluepic3.th.jpg[/IMG][/URL][/IMG]
