Back in the day, had a Jato. Too heavy. Team Associated RC10GT2 is much better. It's more of a racer and less basher.

there are alot of great cars out there but most companies that are on the cutting edge make 2wd electric but if i were you i would check losi and there speed-nt 2wd truggy. i dont know how that compares to the jato but it loks like it comes with a 3.4 instead of a 3.3 engine. also the gt2 also in a kit. there is hpi firestorm i think thats 2wd??

Most racers using the truck platform are running the RC10GT2 RS RTR 1/10 NITRO TRUCK. If interested, please pm me for best pricing.
Thank you,

do all these cars except the late model bodies. the problem that we have is that every one wants to win on the first turn so there are big wrecks and we are having trouble with the tire a arms braking . i thought if i could cover the tires i would take some of that away. thanks all for the info
