    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    You can use the traxxas dish wheels and dye them what ever color you want and they are only about $10 for all 4. As for tires you want Moabs, Yokohama geolanders or hpi dirt dawgs. For on road you want something like road rage tires.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    I really like the Yokohama geolanders for bashing and general use. For dirt track I like snake eyes or bow ties.

    for rims I run rims from www.rc-parts.com about 98% of the time. the traxxas dish rims are good too, but I tend to crack them.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    IMO dish rims are great they are cheap and you can dye them. Also for tires i would say maobs for hardcore off raoding where ground clearance matters. But for just a plain dirt feild or smooth area something like the proline dirt hawgs or dirt works would be best. Those are smaller tires (height wise) so you will not be so top heavy and flip. For on road it is road rage all the way. But i would wear out your stocks tires before you switched to raod rages.

    shorten the distance between the front and rear wheels which would give it a rougher ride

    Those are 40 series moabs. Those are like 7" tall. You want 2.2 moabs. You can get moabs on ebay for about 35 a set.

    RE: -Official Traxxas JATO Thread-

    You should run a few degress hotter because the alum chassis actually disapates some of the heat from the engine. But the people who sell them usually say it has only a small effect and you shuold only go up a degree or 2. Like i said thats what thye claim. Honestly i dont think i would buy that chassis its to much money IMO.

    Yeah 60 aint to bad but i think when i buy a new chassis it will be the aluminum ones that are silver. Olnly in 30-40 range.

    It dose pretty good. But if it is thick grass or tall it wont work good. No ST will.

    Also it is recommened not to drive nitro rc cars on cars becasue it over works teh engine. Unless it is real hard grass.
