jato 3.3 with a robinson racing 19t (revo) clutch bell and 36 spur gear... makes the stock 3.3 jato stock look like jato 2.5

Yeah! Jato 3.3. My buddy has one and it's fffaaasssttt! The only thing with it is that it's too fast to keep on the track! He hit a trash can today at almost full speed and broke his first front bulkhead. Once the tires balloon you can't control it.

suggest to your buddy to duct tape the inside of his tires...next time he replaces them that is... they won't balloon no more!

T-maxx for the fastest? I dont think so, you have to keep the front end on the ground and still it wont keep up with a Jato. I think for stock. Jato 3.3, Jato 2.5, Revo 3.3, T-Maxx 3.3.
In order from fastest to fast

I thought I read the tmax had a 1.8 gear & the revo had a 2.0 gear. I think I read the revo was about a pound heavier, but I dunno just started playing with em.

T-maxx is a good truck, but not the fastest. ST class the jato has it. MT class the revo has it. overal its the jato.

You forgot to put the nitro 2.5 rustler between the jato 2.5 and the revo 3.3

WOW ... Quite the response. Seems like the Jato 3.3 is the fastest but its only rear wheel drive by what my LHS says which makes it harder to controll at high speeds. Would prefer a full 4x4 drive vehicle for cornering. I just got the center differential and rear brake kits for my Revo 2.5 along with the Revo 3.3 engine. Hopefully that will speed it up a bit. I would eventually like to get a big block engine truck that goes as fast as the Jato if not faster.

theres a truck that can beat all those. Its not traxxas, its the Schumacher menas i think its called? 70mph+ its a 1/10 scale and 3 speed with a .21 stuffed in it for good performance. Beat a jato top end any day
