Default off road jato 3.3

hellow all i was wondering what you traxxas fans have done to your jato 3.3s to make them good track cars right not i m running stock except the enine is brand new just broken in (due to a piston sleeve problem) all rpm arms rpm bumper and the largest spur i can run. what els do i need to get so i can run it at the track. my tracks dirt is a baseball mound type dirt. i just cant get enough grip on the dirt i figured bigger wider tires with the square dot desighn on it would do. but what is your opinion.

ps please dont tell me to get a diferent car thanks

Damn

Big wide tires are going to float on top of that dirt giving you no traction.

Do some new era 17mm hexes (conversion) and pick up some 1/8 buggy tires.
