Default Tips for Jato?

To all:
I just got my first Jato and it is wicked cool!!! I am wondering if there is anyone else out there with one so that maybe they could share some wisdom or tricks to a semi-noob.

Thanks

Check the traxxas forum, they've got quite a few people with them over there. Just google it.

thanks for the tip...
I have tried to get on the Traxxas forum, but for some reason it won't let me get on there with a yahoo e-mail address. Who knows...

Will pick up the RPM A-arms a.s.a.p.

I owned a jato once. A couple of things that I would consider are the dual brake kit. I believe Hot Racing makes it, just search for jato dual brake on ebay. Also get the aluminum brake lever. Make sure to get the one with the bearing. Golden Horizon makes it.

Depending if you're going on road or off will determine alot.

I had a jato once, it cost me over 330 in 3 months of bashing/racing. So my top tip would be, get rid and buy a 1/8 buggy. I found it to be a right piece of s**t.
