Well as I learned the hard way..There is no factory setting for the shift point. Every truck is different. U just gotta play with it a little bit. Try 2 make ur slipper clutch a bit more tight. About 1/4 turn from all the way tight. Ur tune will also impact ur truck from shifting. A bad tune and the truck will not shift. Being that u changed ur clutch bell will also have an affect on ur shift point. The tuning window for the shift poind is really narrow and you gotta be carefull when tuning it. U wanna make small adjustments at a time and see how it will react.If yougo pass that small window and it a hard time finding the right tune again. It sounds like u may have done that. If so have fun trying 2 find it again. What you can do is screw it in all the way. but be carefull not 2 much or you candamage the spring in the clutch. You should be able2 feel when itsbottomed out. From there make small adjustments and make high speed passes in between adjustments 2 take notice of it shifting. Continue doing this til u hear it shift. When you finally do.Continue 2 adjust til you are happy with the shift point. Try not 2 allow it 2 shift late and high in the RPM range cuz u will damage ur tranny. You can also check this out.

Put the 18 tz in a rc 10 with a 19/60 gearing. Ttrust me you wont regret it!! It makes the cvr look like the AE 15 that comes in them.

The only one I ever rebuilt was an old OS .15CV. All I did was replace the piston and sleeve and it turned out pretty good. I Had that motor from 2000 to about 2007. I still have it but it needs to be rebuilt again but I just get new motors now. Less hassle. I enjoy rebuilding the actual car or modifying it more than messing with the engine.

And about the .18TZ I was thinking about it but one fast as hell car is good enough. Besides parts are getting hard to find for the GT so I'm gonna baby it once its done.

Hi guys I'm a newbie at trucks but a proud Jato owner. Perhaps not the best first nitro truck, but nothing else out there looks as good. So with that I have a question, the Jato I have I got used, nothing wrong with it except I have the black/silver/yellow Jato body. I would love to have the blue/yellow Jato body they must have come with a while ago. does any one know where I can get one? Thanks. S

Well Im not sure where you can find that exact body but if you search online you can more then likely find it. Look into the crowd pleazer body. They are pretty tight and look good with your option of how you wanna place decals. You can also get some nice looking wing 2 go on it and it'll look real nice. I seen a few REAL nice custom jobs some guys have done and its like no other. I think that is best. 2 have something like no other out there and have your own style. But if you really want that blue/yellow body just google search jato 3.3 bodies and see what you can find.



   But anyway quitnas1 this is for you...............I took my tranny apart today after about 2 hours trying 2 remove a stripped screw I had.   Finally went 2 auto zone and bought a screw extractor kit and in about 10 seconds I had it out wish I would have done that in the 1st place. But anyway......After taking it apart trying 2 figure out why it wouldnt shift into 2nd I realized it was what you said it may be. That little silver thing you talked about in the pic you posted...Well sure enought hat thing had snapped off so the clutch had nothing 2 grab and engage. The thing that sucks is that I just spent 35$ on a new diff and clutch and it turned out 2 be fine. So I just had 2 ordered a new clutch gear. I hope it gets here in time. I am moving in a week so I'll be F*C#ED if not. Gotta love RC man. Thanks for the onfo tho. After going thru all this with the tranny I could prolly take it apart with my eyes closed.

Yeah thats cool bro just let me know when. Like I said Im about 2 move 2 Nashville in about a week so I'll be busy. Either way I will have internet at my new place and keep in touch with you. I hope my parts come b4 I move so I can fix my jato. I got them from Tower Hobbies and being they are in Nevada I believe........It takes forever for parts shipped 2 TN. I hate it.

Yeah i hear ya man. This hobby sure is killin the bank but then again if I didnt do this I would prolly just spend more money on beer.



 I already have another RC in mind that I want. Im deff gonna get a 1/8 scale. I want  either the  kyosho inferno ST or the Mugen MBX6T. All of which are pretty expensive but either way I want an 8 scale and its gotta be a truggy. I just gotta some how swing around 600$ with the wife and she'll be cool with it.

Oh trust me bro I know all about that. My 1st RC was a speedy tiger that cost about 150-200 bucks. I thought I was getting a steal after lookin on other sites. Then again that was way b4 I knew anything about RC cars and how true the "you get what you pay for" saying is. I ran into problem after problem with that thing and finding parts is like finding a cure for cancer and then if you do its being shipped from Tiwan and takes WEEKS.



 I came back from Iraq and got the jato and realized what RC really is and that speedy tiger went right in the dumpster. But now after the Jato I want something bigger that I can take off road cuz the jato doesnt do all that well off road unless you mod it and by the time i spend more money on mods for it I can just have bought the truck I want so.........

What motor are you gonna put in it? The picco 21 P9R is a sick motor and if you really wanna get crazy the os .28XZ is super fast as well. I dont know how much u wanna spend of if either would fit but just a thought either way you would be happy and have a beast 2 control.
