if u have good offroad tyres on the jato, and u are good at controlling the throttle, u will beat him, its got a higher top speed, and in stock form, the baja 5B, IF its a RTR one, is quite sluggish on the bottom end, so the jato, theoretically speaking should win lol

if the jato has the right tires it'll win for sure....but 5B>jato any day in my opinion. I dont care much about speed. I hope you roll over in front of him and he crushes your jato into pieces. LOL just kiddin man. get a video of it while you're at it

with your driving 5b hands down and with 700 into a 5th scale, he's got most likely a better pipe gears motor upgrade, etc... a lot can go into it with 700, they go about 35-40 stock seen guys put about 300 in and still hit 50+ but remember this he can run you over, and that might not end well for you after spending 150 on it, yea if he can't catch it fine but one mistake its gone.

Depends on the surface. The 5b can roll over some monster obsticles like they dont exist. The JATO at WOT hits a rock thats slightly too big, then itll be cartwheeing and spitting out parts.. race over...

they are just awesome. The sound, size and speed not to mention the 45 minute runtimes, and never having to worry about tuning (well nothing like a nitro engine)
