Default Jatto 3.3 (help plz)

hi guys, im looking for some help on the jato 3.3.

i have a car and payed 180$ for it, not sure of the name of it.

i took it out for a run, t was my first car, everything was great.

my dad wanted to try it, and boom, he ran it into a little metal fence and it broke,

the car is now horribble. i am looking forward to buying a new car. i am experienced with gas nitro rc's.

and i am very intrested in the jatto3.3.. is their any info u cn give to me thats not very good bout the car, and something that is. and may u reccomend any other rc cars that are nitro, and at least go 60mph+

i am mainly looking for a rc that can do a little bit of everything, mainly, bumpy roads, (like here in chicago,ill) , and also grass, not rocking though.

yes i know i sound nooby, but i am practikly very new.

ty for all ur help, i hope you understand,

--Ricky

The jato would probley be your best bet . it can handle what your looking
to do for both on and off road and is very durable takes a good beatig
and has lots of options check your local hobby shop to see what they carry
iit sucks to buy a car that you cant get parts for

I own a jato 3.3 and they are great. 1:10 scale car with about a .19 engine is pretty insane. They are a hybrid car which is mainly made to tear up the street. But a quick tire change and ride height change and its a pretty capable off-road vehicle.

It's a lot of fun to bash around with, but if your looking to ride mostly off-road, you may want to consider a revo or something with 4 wheel drive.

A great place for information is
http://monster.traxxas.com/forumdisplay.php?f=58 there are a lot of very active helpful people who mod and upgrade there jato's.

You are able to fly cars in the air with the throttle / brake. if you want the nose up hit the throttle while it is in the air, nose down - brake. and you can actually turn the vehicle by using the steering. It takes some practice but this is the best part of off-road bashing / racing
