Which O.S. is it? Neither will keep up with the jato, the jato is built for straight line speed, but the buggy is probably better in every other aspect, lol.

Depends on how its been stored - kept tightly sealed, in a cool place not exposed to sunlight, it'll keep for a while. I've used some over a yr old and couldn't tell diff versus new. Plenty of discussion here -

Default .28 SH motor

How tight are the 3 pice clutches suposed to be? 2 of them are tight 1 is not, I am thinking after reading some of the posts on fixing idling,,check the clutch, and im having a hard time with getting mine to idle and the wheels not going constantly, or the motor shuting off.

+1 jato is only for straight line speed....the buggy is better on jumps and handles way better than jato
