The wing for a b3 would be another good option that would be super easy to mount up.

Well if your going to put a 1/8th buggy wing on it DO NOT mount it to the shock tower alone, that would last about 1 flip and the tower would break off. A B4 wing mounted up somehow would probably work better for a 1/10th car. I don't know how you'd mount it, thats up to you to figure out. Look at a bunch of pictures of different cars and they're wing mounts and see which one looks like it could fit and order that one. Then come up with some kind of mounting system. Not many people have put 1/8th buggy wings onto 1/10th GT's. Although a buddy of mine did it on his GT easily with an Ofna Ultra wing mount, but eh RC10GT is a totally different truck than the Jato, so yeah....

How about a Jammin CRT wing, they are narrower than the 1/8 buggy wings, and might fit the Jato a little better. Another good option for mount is the Mugen wing mount, it is narrower, and works well, and might work better with the Jato Shock Towers, not to sure never seen them. Plus if you are jumping and bashing the Jato, a wing is a SUPER body protector, and motor protector. I have landed my T-Maxx on the wing TONS of times, and have scuffed the wing, and kind of bent the front body mounts, but that is it.
