    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    hi, sorry i didnt know where else to post this but i have a question. i ran into a problem with my jato 3.3. i have had it for a few years, and havnt had to many problems with it. i was running it the other day for the first time in a while, and all of a sudden, i lost remote control over the car. i couldnt steer the car, brake it, or make it accelerate. it just stopped recieving all commands i gave it. the car was just idleing. i changed the batterys in the back end of the car, as well as my remote batteries, and it still wont work. im not sure what is wrong with it. if anyone could get back to me or help me troubleshoot then that would be great. thanks.

    also on a side note, my brake pad/assembly is pretty loose and i was wondering how i could go about tightening it up. it takes a long time for the car to come to a stop, due to a long braking distence and i would like to reduce that if i could.

    thanks


    if you have any questions about my problem i would be happy to answer them

    edit: i think it is either a problem in my remote or a problem in the chip that receives the signel from my remote. (i forget what this is called). i was wondering if there is anything that is most likely wrong with it. when i turn on the switch located on the car, i can hear it engage power. so its not a battery problem. and the car is not out of range of the controller, as i have it sitting 3 feet from the car and no response.

    Why did you put on a new spur gear? Check your gear mesh. Also check to see if your brakes are on to tight. They should not be engaded at idle. Don't loosen any screws.

    No. You need a big block mount for 1, and for 2 IIRC you might have to shim the engine up a little bit on the mount itself. I know this is the case in some monster trucks. I only know of one person that put a big block in a jato and had success with it but he used a Mach 427 in his Jato with 1st gear disabled.

    I just looked at my jato, and Unless you make some sort of adapter plate for the engine to sit on on top of the stock mount, maybe but then you'll have to run a much bigger clutch bell or spur gear to get it to mesh properly.

    The holes on my Jato engine mount is about 14mm apart (2.5 Jato but 3.3 is same dimension), My big block motor mounts in the LST2's are about 24mm apart. The Jato engine mount does not have any extra metal to drill new holes into. There is a big block conversion motor mount you can buy for a Jato.

    Thats a smallblock - laxtreme wants to put a big block engine into his Jato which requires a different mount. The Stock one will not work for this purpose.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    could i use the tmaxx mount and drill new holes in the chassis? the reason i just dont order the new era big block kit is cuz parents wont let me order parts online (only 16) and my local shop orders from horizon hobby and they dont carry it.

    I really doubt it. I dont know a whole lot about the T-Maxx, but I highly doubt you'll be able to just drill new holes, and have it work. You also have to keep in mind that a big block engine puts out quite a bit more power than a smallblock engine will so there will be added stress on all of the chassis components. If you try to make a smallblock mount work, it might bolt up but given the extra power it might crank and cause all sorts of problems.

    I'd suggest saving your money and asking your parents to order the part for you. You can call New Era and order over the phone (have your folks do it for you.)

    You might be able to make it work with stock parts, but I doubt it would work for very long. Thats just my opinion.

    Thats a start.. I'd be more concerned about the engine mount. Also be advised a regular big block header and pipe probably wont fit the Jato's chassis. I'd do a little more research before trying to shoehorn this thing together. If it were me (and mind you, I don't like OS engines) instead of going through the hassle of putting a .26 or .28 in it, I'd get an OS 21TM which uses the smallblock mount pattern and will drop right into any traxxas vehicle with little or no modifications. big block power in the space of a smallblock. OR stick with a 3.3 or Losi 3.4.
