Servo could be bad or check and see if your servo saver is loose.As far as upgrading your servo get a hitec metal gear servo like the 645mg should be good enough for a jato and they are relativley cheap around 35 to 40 bucks depending where you buy it from. Good Luck!

Like the wheels dont turn? I ask because a Jato is not meant to turn well. Its meant to go fast straight

^-yeah what he said-^ I bought one when they first came out to do wheelies It didnt turn, didnt stop, but it went like HELL in the parking lot... thats what it was built for.

to steer it its strickly off power turns.. with all the power and weight out the back and the front tires always lifting..steering is not very good
It was really a good buggy I wish traxxas would had made it 4wd.

Thanks for the info... My servo saver looks loose so I'll adjust it and see how it steers then...
