Well, it depends on what you want to do. Let me first say that the Revo and Jato are both EXCELLENT trucks. I've had one of each. If you are mainly going to be bashing, go for the revo. If you want to race, go with the Revo. The Jato is more of a parking lot basher (even though it is a "stadium truck") It is not a great basher as it breaks easily. If you like doing high speed runs, go for the jato.

I would go with the Revo. I have had both and I loved my Revo but hated my Jato. Revo's kick ass for racing but I could never get a handle on the Jato. I tried everything and could never get rear traction. Good luck with your decision.

Default i got both REVO and JATO

I got both revo and jato and by far revo will out do jato revo is tougher jato is fragile. jato is fast as hell but do touch anything or you will be buying parts. i had my revo 2.5r for 2 years with tuned rear dual exhaust and spinners my revo's off the hook.
