I've been looking at these forums for a few days now and have seen nothing on the upgrades Jato truly needs. I've heard that aluminum shock towers are a must and I've already come to the conclusion that the anacondas should never even smell the fumes from the nitro.. I run Dirt Hawgs and nothing else. I know aluminum front arms are a no go due to the obvious fact that if the aluminum arms are connected to an aluminum chassis... welll.... Picture hitting a tree with those things connected.. So anyone who knows what theyre doing, please feel free to give your upgrade advise =) Pictures are cool too, but I'm not looking for shelf queens, as mine is not and never will be.
Hot-racing dual brakes was a must for me.
Jato 3.3, Revo .28 JL Max, Nitro Stampede 3.3
i agree with the dual brakes, also a nice pipe is a good upgrade in my opinion the ths racing pipe is awesome. maybe get a 5 cell flat pack for the middle compartment to center the weight a good set of tires and i think you set.
Jato 2.5 w/ 3.3
1/16 E-Revo VXL
Dirt hawgs are a good start. Upgrade CVD's. Stock ones strip quick from too much torque. I also prefer 58T Spur with 20T clutch bell. More bottom end and wheelies all day. Also put roll cage on mine. Added more weight but I'm a basher not a racer. Saved my car more than once. Depends on what you want to do with it.
RPM a arms all the way around, RPM front bumper(saved me the other day when i hit a sign post lol). I run badlands strictly offroad, trenchers on/offroad and foams for strictly onroad. for the stock pipe if u dont want to buy a new one, you can drill the stinger out to .25 in which is what i did. I run 20/40 revo gearing.
Awesome feedback guys! Thank you. Started replacing with some RPM parts.. But I hear that a few aluminum upgrades are good. I know not to upgrade the front a-arms with aluminum, but is there anything that is a must for this upgrade?
Ive heard that aluminium bulk heads are a good upgrade also. Im new to the world of rc cars/trucks and just got a jato. Does anyone know where i can download the blown up parts diagram of the jato.ive been looking and cant find any.
Does this work?
I'm just trying to increase my post count.
