    Think it's possible to make a t-maxx 2.5 as fast as a jato

    I owned both and the jato 3.3 on short grass was incredible as you know.T-maxx obviosly can't touch it.Think with the right gearing and engine the maxx 2.5 could almost keep up?

    with the right gearing....and a 1/8 brushless motor on 6s lipo

    even if the maxx had the 3.3 I dont see how it could match the jato. even with the same motor, the weight difference is to great.

    Easy just go throw it in back of your car and get on the highway done




    Other then that no
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    If you put the 2.5 in the jato and the 3.3 in the tmaxx...that would make their top speeds alittle closer.

    But you cant simply gear up the tmaxx. Sure, a couple of teeth maybe...increasing the top speed by a couple of MPH. But you cant gear up and gain more than that. And gearing up will sacrafice acceleration as well.

    Littlemel yes and no about the Corvette,a lot of people assume because it's a "Corvette" it's super powerful and fast.There were only a few heart stoppers produced,the rest are just a fancy car. You're basically right in a way.

    When compared to a silverado, it is. You could make the t-maxx as fast but with alot of money and mods and it's sooo not worth it IMO. The jato is purposely made for all out speed and the t-maxx isn't, they're two different animals.
    If you dont know what your doing, its best to do it quickly.

    But top speed wise, the vette will be able to go faster.

    Yes, but not with drop-in parts.

    If you're able to custom fab brackets, modify gears, etc, then you can make most things possible. I have a 74 MPH RC10GT, but it's FAR from stock. OFNA Force .32 Engine w/14T bell, 48T Losi hardened steel spur, 2.8" TRX wheels front & Rear-and that's just the beginning. When you crank it up like this, stuff breaks. So far, the RRP tranny gears and GP M alloy tranny housing are taking it. MIP CVDs lasted about 3 minutes on pavement, though.

    So yeah, geared to the moon and with something like an LRP ZR32 spec 2 engine, your T-Maxx could beat your Jato. But it'll be a real project, not just something you buy parts for and assemble.

    here is a perfect example of this...
    a vantage, lexus LFA and viper get killed by pickup trucks and an mitsu evo.

    Im sure there is some way...some engine...that could make the maxx as fast as the stock jato on pavement...but you would ruin the purpose of the monster truck by taking away the offroad ability.
    And just when you have had the maxx match the jato...a few simple mods could make the jato faster.

    There are plenty of 10 second and faster street trucks out there, including diesel 4x4s. If you wanna see some absolutely wicked street cars/trucks, check out Nelson racing on youtube. Many, many 6-8 second, 1,200-2,000 HP gasoline powered street machines. Not cheap, of course.

    RE: Think it's possible to make a t-maxx 2.5 as fast as a jato

    I think it is possible to get a Tmaxx as fast as a Jato, but I too think it would require some custom work to the chassis and suspension. Weight is the enemy, it would be competing against a what... 2 pound car? You would need a fast revving engine too. Lots of nitro. Better get the cash machine or credit card warmed up... LoL.

    And there are plenty more cars in that time range.
