Same mine is bone stock.....crazy fast and a kick in the pants to drive. Same as Olds....something small and very quick. As far as troubleshooting goes....never had a problem with it so I would not know what to tell ya. You have a problem with yours?
I did til I called Traxxas, Got my motor running today and broke it in and damn it's insane. I beat the crap out of it and messed up the glow plug wire it looks very shredded up. I need to find some off road areas for my next round of bashing. I just like knowing who I can talk to about Jatos. I might have to replace the wire for the ez start system. Also I think I'll install the wheelie bar tonight to prevent it from flipping over so much.
Yeah, I don't get many wheelies with mine. I run 17mm buggy tires/wheels for a narrower/taller tire for running in grass. I get an occasional wheely in the grass though, but on pavement, 1/8 buggy street tires just spin! Still fun though and I like the look of it.
well electrical tape did the trick and she's running again, damn the Jato rocks out hardcore. I need to find some offroads for this thing though, it attracts way too much attention in my neighborhood LOL.
Whats the biggest wheels I can put on it? I'd like to make it a bit taller and put some meaty tires too.
While larger wheels/tires are cool, they add a lot of stress to the arms and parts when you don't land perfect off every jump. I went with 1/8 buggy wheels/tires on mine with new era 17mm wheel adapters, but I know some guys have put stampede wheels/tires on it. The stampede runs 12mm hex's like the jato.
Keep in mind that the jato is very light and spins the wheels at ridiculously high speeds, so larger wheels/tires causes much more rotational mass which would make the jato a real handful to drive on the ground and especially in the air.
