    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    Here's a couple shots of mine. its a 3.3 with RPM arms, Modified Hard Bodyz roll cage to cut weight. TRX CVDs, GTR shock bodies, 5 cell center pack, Aluminum turnbuckles, Pull start 58 tooth spur. In these shots its on 2.8 Imexs with Imex ATs and a HPI 200mm Dodge Ram body. also have the Proline Basher set up (2.2 Wabash wheels and Dirthead tires) this is a great cheap set up. $32 mounted. have a new motor to break in atm. took a huge jump and landed on its top, broke the motor right at the mounts. One complaint on the Hard Bodyz cage it does leave about 1/4" of the back half of the head unprotected. in this shot it does not have the cage installed.

    ORIGINAL: bullittube

    i no i am a noob and i should keep my mouth shut but everything i have herd about the jato said the front wheels are normally off the ground so why would u wont 2 add a spoiler would that just worsen the problem
    You've got a point. maybe i'm just checking them out cause they look sweet. i've heard the same thing from my local hobby shop expert.

    Also, to dwjr8, do u know how many sorts of 200mm bodies would fit? i thought they were meant for touring.

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    im sure you could make em all fit. you can see that i did some serious cutting to make clearances. ive seen 200mm truck and sedan, and sports car bodies on Jatos. Lambo's, Lotus's you name it. there are plenty of tricks to keep the front end down just set up differently. Gearing, slipper clutch, battery location, even lead weights if you need to.
    you break you buy.

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    another way to keep the front down is to go with revo gearing... like a robinson cb/ and a 38 spur...
    i am runnin a custom grind ab mod mill and i dont wheelie at all...
    secondly, move ur batt pack up over the shock towers... it will help in turning but be carful cause the rear will follow around...

    yeah, i've heard about putting the battery in front. i think i'll try it. i've got an old hump pack that won't fit in the normal places anyway.

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    Hey man I have the same engine im bout 2 put in mine as well. What header pipe did you use. I noticed the stock jato 1 wont work. I just got a buku pipe for the engine and just need 2 know what header will work.

    Have you ran yours yet and if so how much of a diff is it from the 3.3? was it worth the money?

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    Well I have ran the buku with the 3.3 and had crazy gains and was really happy with it. I have heard nothing but good things about it. I havent tryed it on the 12tz spec II yet and maybe I wont have the same kinda great gains. what pipe do you suggest running with that engine and what header cuz the rs4 header I dont think it will work.

    I here some of the 3.3 guys had improvement with the BUKU. I tested it with the .21TM no improvement from mid range to top end. Only some low end imrpovement which is not needed for the .21TM. Tested is on my JLR.12 and it was a complete NO NO. Another test done not by me on the .18TZ and the stock pipe was better. Only 2 or 3 tanks on the pipe and it is boxed in the closet. Biggest waist of $100 bucks I ever spent in the hobby.

    BTW all tests were done with Bushnell Velocity, with the gains or lack of logged and recorded with each gearing change and distance of the run.

    Also forbes got his best runs with the stock pipe, after many tests and different setups on radar and video. You can't just go by what you see or thought you saw. Eyes can be tricky.

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    So you think its a poor choice of pipe for a 12 size engine all together? After seeing some test runs and reading up on things I think they may all be true about it being overrated. What pipe would you suggest for the 12tz? Im still trying 2 think of what 1 I wanna get.

    Also what THS pipe and header because the exhaust port on the trx engine is a tad smaller then the 12tz exhaust port and I wanna make sure it will fit.

    Do I tune the motor during break in? or just make it smooth to run then really tune it?

    RE: Official Traxxas Jato 3.3 Thread

    You do not need to tune it during breakin. Leave it at the factory settings to allow rich running with proper lubrication. After break in you can then tune for proper running. If ever you are having trouble with the engine and it just does not want to work with your adjustments and is acting all kinds of crazy on you and you lose track of what you have done as far as tuning, remember to always return all carb settings back to factory settings and start all over. It always works for me. You can fnd the factory settings in the owners manual or online somewhere. The internet is great for finding just about anything.
