gt2 for sure. if I ever get the itch to race 1:10 I will be picking one them up. There's a guy at my local track who has one and he can nearly keep up with the 1:8 guys. He's a SICK driver but the truck is equally awesome.

But thene i am thinking about geting the Gt2 kit and building it and saleing jato for money and that money going into gt2,Hmmmmm

Kinda wanna race jato sense i already have it and can put around 300 Buck's in it,Hmmmmmmmmm i still dont know.
Dude, sell the jato and pocket the money. The 300 bux you'd spend on the jato can buy you a nice gt2 or AD2. My buddy bought a jato to race and boy did it give him fits. Just couldn't tune it to the track and nobody knew how to help him. Got an associated and now there's all kinds of help and he's having fun. The jato isn't a bad truck but it's kind of like trying to take an onroad car offroading. Can't go wrong with either a AE or a Losi.

Wow. I'm surprised to see no aluminum upgrades on it. How much run time do you have. I spent a lot of time trying to tune my friends Jato to the track. Everytime he'd break something he'd put aluminum on. The extra weight ended up helping him tremendously on the track. But still, it was hard to work with it when it had the stock 2.5 on. Those engines are animals. I think my dynamite plantinum .12 would have been a good match for it.

Well, unfortunately Jato's spend most of their lives at WOT and that takes a lot of toll on the vehicles. But depending on what it comes with, I think $250 would be my max. I think trying to trade someone for a GT2 or AD2 will be hard. IDK. I've been wrong a lot. Good luck.

I might post pics tonight of my GT2. I just got home from work and I've been awake for 27hrs. Good night.

Good call. I was thinking about basher prices. $200 and under will be much easier to sell. Surely someone wants a playtoy.
