    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    What are MIP CVD's? I keep seeing people talk about them and was wondering what that stood for.

    What radio controller would you recommend? Is the upgraded one from traxxas any good? I am sure there is better but I have one car and I am really not looking at more so I think the most inportant thing for me would be the locked signal.

    I think the Traxxas steel CVD's or axles are the best. As far as a radio I'm still on Futaba AM radios.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    the CVD are constant velocity drive , basically it transfer more power directly to the wheels since they do not flex under stress condition and things like that!
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXXJS2&P=7
    the MIP are like 30 buck but the traxxas one 45! exect for the little rubber protection on the traxxas ones I don t know why they are better !

    for the radio If you want to go 2.4GHz I would recommend spektrum radio, I have the DX3 and it works pretty good !

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    Hi all....Just your typical newbie question I guess....I have a Jato with the 2.5 on it....It ran great last year...now this year..It starts perfectly with no issues....Seems like as soon as it gets up to operating temperature it quits and won't restart...(Until it's cooled down again)....So..I thought that maybe the engine was pooched...So I went out and bought another 2.5 engine,,(Used...but good compression)....and am having the exact same results.....???
    I'm stumped...any ideas or help would be really appreciated...

    You could have an air leak that gets worse as the engine gets hotter. Try and seal them up and see how they run afterwards.

    My mistake 4tec_buoy.Igot that brace from a company called Agressive Technologies. Here is the link:

    http://www.aggressivetechnologies.co...&maincat_id=10

    They also make swaybar mounts for RPMarms which Ithought was kinda cool. Ithink new era also has these braces but theydon't look the same although they do have one that is carbon fibre.

    Hey Quietnas here is a link that may interest you for that all aluminum project you are working on. These servo caps look awesome.

    http://www.aggressivetechnologies.co...p?maincat_id=2

    Let me know what you think.

    P.S. Just finished rebuilding my transmission on the Savage. No more posts from me for a while on that forum. What a chore that was. Jato is still tops in my book.

    Check out Horizon Hobby:

    http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...odID=PRO112002

    They should also have dish wheels.If not check out traxxas or e-bay.

    Good luck.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    can anyonetell me why all of a sudden my jato 3.3 is destroying glow plugs? just put talon tires on it and it does alot of flipping and cartwheels now, is this why the filament in the plug keeps breaking? Also, it is sluggish on takeoff then comes alive and lifts the front skyward, any suggestions on how to get better throttle response? And once in awhile it stays in second gear after a high speed run and thens goes back to first after cracking the gas a few times. I need all the advice I can get

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    LSN for better throttle response. You may be burning plugs bcuz of running to lean. Or also running to rich. If your LSN is set to rich then fuel will puddle in your engine. That may be why when you take off its a bit sluggish then it comes alive toward the top. That will alsokill your glow plug. Go with a medium plug it will last longer also.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    Steering Bell Crank- I broke mine, is it worth the money to get an upgraded aluminum one? Looks like they run about $25-30 bucks. I'd prefer to save the money and just get a stock one, but if it is going to coninually break I guess it would be more cost effective to go ith aluminum.
    What are your thoughts? Is this a freak occurrence or will this happen again? I wasnt bashing very hard, but I did lose control at WOT and flip into some bush/trees

    OK I have heard different things from different people so I ask the experts here.

    What is the best way to check whether your spur gear is on correctly?
