Alright, so I've been ordering stuff all over to do a ground up built Jato.
TRX Chassis upgrade
TRX Blue Alloy GTR Shocks
TRX Jato CVD kit
TRX Top Plate (It will be custom painted)
TRX clear Jato Body custom painted
TRX gas tank & line with fuel stop
GH Silver alloy Bulkhead
GH Silver Front Shock Tower
GH Silver alloy Hubs & Carries all around
GH Silver alloy Brake arms
RPM Blue arms all around
RPM Black Bumper
HR Dual SS Disk & Carbon pad Brake kit
HR HS complete gear set
HR Silver alloy rear Shock Tower
HR Silver alloy steering linkage & servo saver.
Custom Wheels I have to show when they arrive.
Need opinions on a few items
I need turnbuckles but do not want the TRX red kit. I plan to run RPM blue rod ends all around, just need some options for the bar in silver.
What would be the best screw kit hop up?
Is there a better wheelie bar option that let's me run the optional rear bumper that does not have a battery box?
What's the good servos to run? I don't need Ultra TQ like with the Savage, I'm looking for the point it becomes overkill.
I need to decide what rear wheel hex in blue alloy to run and blue alloy front spindles.
Id like a engine mount in blue alloy with more cooling and beefy
I'm going to order a Acer Racing Ceramic Nitride bearing kit
I want to get Silver alloy horns, but need to figure out what servo & then what horn will fit, please help on this.
I intend on running a Buku Clutch & ERCM pipe with a Vantage header
I have a few TX I can use , but I was planning on getting the Flysky system to try it out.
As for what to power the beast, I've not fully decided on a modified 3.3, modified OS21TM or a modified Nova 2.5
I might have to settle on a modded 3.3 simply for budget reasons, but either an OS or Nova will make its way to power the Truck.
Any "must have" things I'm missing? I'm considering a New Era top plate brace and roll cage, I ordered the HR tower with rear wing mount ready. But not sure if the cage will conflict with the wing mount.
I will keep this thread updated as parts arrive, please post up opinions and suggestions.
