Hi guys, I just ordered the jato 3.3 and plan to make it off-road. I've done a lot of research and I've seen the post about the "ultimate off-road jato". But I'm sure there are better things now the when that was posted.
From what I've learned this is my shopping lost as of now.
Proline badlands/trenches 2.8
20t clutch bell
Rpm wide front bumper
I know I should upgrade the a arms. Should I get aluminum or rpm?
I'm going to be bashing it, so if there's any other musts, please let me know.
Also what are your thoughts on the stock shocks for bashing?
Im using the stock shocks myself but I have changed the springs (tan in front, silver in rear) and shock oil(I think I have 35w in the front). Also using the RR 20t clutch bell and 54t spur with Badlands in rear and dirt hawgs in the front. RPM arms (rpm has lifetime warranty on their products) and bumper. Don't forget a rx battery pack....I'm using a pro-tek 6v 1600mah pack.
My Jato is nothing but a yard thrasher. I would upgrade the A arms to RPM as cheap insurance when you crash into (say a large log in my case) I went with some Thrashers from Pro-Line but since this is a 5" tire I am using a 56/ spur and 22/cb. Not the added traction will strain the tranny once you get away from the stock gears. So my second upgrade is a bit more $$$ and that is to get the Hot Racing all metal trans gears. other than the stinger mod mine is all stock and doing great with some jumps about 4' but more up and down not a long jump and wheelies across the yard.
I think the best Size for the Stinger mod is 15/64" that still had the best tune without leaning out on the high end.
I see your in Goldsboro,NC, I am just down the road in Fuquay-Varina, NC
I used paddle tires, great off road traction and I locked my diff for even more traction.
