Just Curious, no flamming. With all the reissues, at least three on the B/R/S 1/10 electric platform, The introduction of a brushless boat, 4 different versions of the T-maxx, one update of the E-maxx, two versions of the E-revo, two or three versions of the revo, not to mention the slash +one update and a 4x4 and the stampede 4x4. I'll not include the XO-1 and the funnycar and light setup, not sure of the success yet.
All those mentioned, were after the release of the Jato 3.3. How do i know, because every time i seen one of the traxxas famous mystery signs, I was hoping for the E-jato to come. Is there a reason for not making one? Like i said, I'm not mad or angry, but it's too long since traxxas had a winner in the ST class. I mean Traxxas along with Associated and losi made the ST class, Back in the early to mid 90's traxxas has both a nat in buggy and ST and made the worlds with I believe the TCP. I race associated for 1/10, due to their being no offering from Big T to truly race. I guess i'm asking, Is there a reason you can't make it? or not making it? I wish that traxxas could take back the class, they ran so good in back in the past. I honestly believe that the jato will be a knockout in E-st.
Thanks for reading and tolerating one person that wishes for something different.
The rustler will be the closest to an electric jato.
you just helped me decide my next project. Now to find a Jato roller! I'm gonna use my Mamba Monster in one - I'll post soon enough.
Yeh, would love a ejato. Why make the jato at all if the rustler is so close. ( I know its not) . Just about all their nitros have a electric version. But not the jato. Been talked about for years. Jato is a better design, to bad really.

My aplolgies to the mods, Figured the jato forum would be the best place for this. I wish Peter V, or someone else at Traxxas would chime in. Doesn't have to be got one on the way or No , Just wondering Why it hadn't been considered

The Jato is a great platform, with a few small adjustments it can easily beat the Rustler in every way... Don't forget that the Rustler is based on the vintage SRT, so, it's a 15 year old design...

The E-Jato(make a buggy and MT version too) would be the greatest change to the electric 2wd line up. What's sad is that the old SRT is still a better truck then the Rustler. And the Rustler has less in common with the SRT and weaker components What was so hard for Traxxas to keep the SRT transmission but just replace the fiberglass with nylon plastic? You can keep overall production cost bc the SRT and the Nitros share the same parts(which some are over 20yrs old) The E-Jato would predec the SRT. The number why reason they wont kill the rustler... its the number one selling RC car of all time and people still buy them everyday..

I would but around here in michigan the kids that have Jatos....BEAT them to death and there trashed when they hit craigslist lol
I left this alone for a few months, got some good comments. With the exception of a possible slash/4x4 and a definite mini e-revo eventually, I probably won't get a traxxas product for racing. I like the slash's tank like durability, I owned a Stampede, one tough truck. The M e-revo? I just liked it from the first pics. But traxxas has lost its drive to dominate, The traxxas i know is gone, replaced with a money hungry machine pumping out niche cars. I remember the Traxxas that got to the 1/10 nationals (buggy and ST) worlds in the '90s (buggy), The undefeated MT ROAR racing champ with the Revo and the at least 6 time RC pro champ in MT (Losi got the final one before the class was stopped due to lack of racers). Sorry, But i refuse to wait for another Niche toy, When you have a winner on the track and the bashing field and refuse to pull the trigger. I figure this post will probably get me banned, but oh well, nothing ever happens here anyways. I remember when there were three racing manufacturers here in America, associated, Losi and Traxxas, Both associated and losi are now owned by other entities, associated by Thunder tiger and Losi by horizion. Traxxas though made in China, is still a US based company and a juggernaut compared the other two. You seem to create niches so you can dominate, What fun or satisfaction is there in that? Yes you pockets are full, But where is the legacy? I want the traxxas that isn't afraid of jumping into the pool and running with the pack, I want the traxxas that created the most dominant MT that ever raced (revo) and dominated with a Small block no less
If this post gets me banned, Oh well. Someone has to try to get traxxas, to see they lost their way
