Default Traxxas Jato

Has anyone heard a release date for this yet? I have to have one. [8D] RC Car magazine had a pre release write up on it this month but no release date that I could see. Anyone?!!?!!!????

P.S. 55 MPH in a 2wd stadium truck with a 2speed. That is insane-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

My ST does 60 with a 2 speed

The Traxxas Jato is scheduled for release the 2nd week in april, my lhs said expect end of april. Check out my Av though, Im getting one. Even all the guys at the hobbyshop are excited about this one. My LHS ordered 50 of them[X(]. It will be the fastest stock rtr around, just not race legal.

jato looks like a lesser rustler, the shocks look bad, and the shock arms look fragile...loks to me more like a racer than a basher

no, it doesent. Your truck is not capable of that speed. With stock gearing, your engine would literally have to run at 75,000 rpm. I have yet to se3e an rc 2 stroke with that kind of rpm...U may need to recalibrate that speed gun, there, buddy....:-)

dave. cut it. the shumacher is very good. good service, ready to help you, good quality, and fast. when something broke at first due to bad setup, they sent me replacements free. not just free, but three of them if they broke later.
