Traxxas Jato 3.3 1/10 2WD RTR Nitro Stadium Truck (w/TQi 2.4GHz Radio, Docking Base & Telemetry)
RC-ANON - Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Saturday, February 05, 2011
The last RC car I owned was an RC10GT... that was about 12 years ago. Since my nephews have gotten the bug for RC (and of course their father as well) I decided to join in the fun and ordered a Jato for myself. Build quality compared to the RC10 seems about the same, but the ratio of performance to cost is much better with the Jato. What I like about the Jato: *Comes with a radio that has variable rate steering (among other very cool options, but this one is a must with a car this fast) *Easy start system - Probably the best idea the engineers at traxxas ever had. This RC is much easier to get running than one with a pull start. No need to take the body off to start or restart if it stalls. No need for a separate glow plug igniter... Just plug the starter in on top and hit the button. *Two speed tranny is just cool. Not sure how well it will hold up, but it definitely works well. *Fast. *Engine seems easy to tune. Watch your head temps and keep it on the rich side and the 3.3 should last a long time. What I don't like about the Jato: * The plastic tubs on the sides of the frame are pretty fragile, and prone to breakage with even minimal impact. It seems like these tubs should be molded from a more flexible plastic. They are, however, a good idea for keeping dirt and water out of the inside. *Nothing else really stands out that I don't like just yet. I would prefer that it came with tires for dirt track, but I suppose most people will probably be running their Jato on pavement. Other than that... thumbs up so far. -cheers Edit to note that the 3.3 uses quite a bit of fuel. Maybe 3 times that of the OS .12 that was in the RC10 GT.
