    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    does anybody know if there is anything i can do to stop tearing up the first gear in my jato???

    everything runs perfect except for the 1st gear wich gets stripped out every couple tanks of fuel.

    can i do anything like a diff trans?

    i dont want to got to the 1st speed gear kit.

    but any suggestions

    Soljajato, you can get a new carb, the 11k os one fits the stock 3.3 and adds a bit but is expensive, or if you find a old ofna force carb(a certain one)fits. Try a new airfilter thats more direct ram air. Get rid of the ezstart and backplate and go bump start. Revo gears 20/40 and foam tires. Why would you want a new cooling head? cut the body out more in the front and you should be good.

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    some pics of the race meet i just went to, nothing could touch the big block jato LOL, allthough being weighted in the rear with the big block, and all the power, the front end dosnt stay in contact with the ground much LOL, so that makes it interesting while trying to steer, especially after the 50 metre straight

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    Hey guys this is my first post. I bought a jato 3.3 and I noticed my steering is horrible. I makes like 30 foot turns. Do I need new servos? AND sometimes my gas in my controller turns into my brake and then they switch back and forth once in a while while im driving. EX. ill be drivng it hard full speed, then ill go to slow down hitting the brake and it will slow down then the things turn backwards somehow and now my brake is my gas and it takes off before stoping untill I hit my gas whice is then the brake. I may just have to go and get all new high trq servos and a new reciever. Buy I wanna get my turning fixed. how do I do that?

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    the guy actually put the plastic part that binds the two steering links together upside down only giving me half turns. I switched it up and now it turns on a dime. And my throtle servo was switching up, but I just pushed in the tips to the reciever and now they are fine. What a car. Yippie
