Default Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 On-Road Thread

No official threads for the Jato, figure Id make one for the guys ripping up the streets with there Jatos. I know most just direct Jatos to the TRX boatds, but most RCs have sections on Brand bassed forums, but the people come here.

Show of your Jatos, post up videos, chat it up. We got BB Jatos running 93mph, modified 3.3 Jatos hitting 79mph, and E-Jato conversions running 114mph. Its no secrete Jatos are fast, but can you handle it. the Jato has good aftermarket support, and with BB, and E Jato conversion kits availible, skies the limit with how far you can take it.

I figure a off road Jato thread would suit the Nitro Off Road section, so lets keep this thread about the pavement shreading of the Jato.

Nice Blue-J Bro. How you like the BB air filter? Ive recently put one on for testing but have not had a chance to run it yet.

Here is the RTR since Ive added a few bits











Curent Build Status

That last pic of your project jato is sick...all those upgrades i read about and drool over all those aluminium parts used in one clean lookin build.Wonder what kinda motor is gonna end up in there...maybe a OS .21...

The BB air filter works well ...got my jato used with no air filter, spur,or radio for 100 dollars. The piston was seized from gummy old oil in the sleeve . So I freed her up with nitro and stuck the BB filter and spur on it .She ran through 2 gallons of 30% before breaking the connecting rod where it attaches the wrist pin and the piston flew off hitting the cylinder head...LOL that's why I say she's on her second life...love this little car and its my first and only nitro so far.

Thanks, I usually buy a RTR, hop it up and end up with a bucket load of stock parts, this project is being built ground up with all aftermarket or modified parts. Initially I intended on going for a modded OS21TM but recent decided Id use that 7075 T6 chassis on my RTR and go for a BB conversion and OS21 Speed or 28 Big Block / ERCM 221T combo.

Might get a Rossy 28 7-T, going to finish the roller first. The Jato is limited in gearing combos although Im looking at Losi cb/pinion options and tiny spurs. I need power and rpm. The Rossi is a TQ beast, just Ive not seen its top end measured. Theoretically the OS21 Speed should pull more rpm (although Novas have left me wide eyed a few times blowing away expectations) The OS 28 vs the Nova Im going to attempt to get a better idea of each engines capabilities.

Started on my jato the other day. It was given to me in this condition lol. What a heap!!!

Ordered the new era big block kit and started going through the parts to find out what I could use and what needed replacing (most of it). Just a mock up of my collari on road .21 and ths pipe.

This is after some cleaning of parts I'm reusing and a few new parts. This is where I'm at for now. Oh yeah, I'm building this one for drag racing.

A quick update. Just missing the shocks, brakes, and steel drive shafts. All of those parts come next, just gotta pay for a wedding first so it's getting set aside for a while.
