my new toy...

Post by spaceace » Tue Aug 04, 2015 5:55 pm

needed something to entertain myself as i'm getting older and thought that a nice little nitro RC would do it... and it did :twisted: :twisted:

got it about a month ago and have already had to replace broken parts :lol:

Traxxas Jato 3.3

here it is with the factory wheels

here it is with a set of aftermarket Proline Trenchers... also need to get a set of them for the front to add weight so the front tires stay on the ground more :roll:

To add extra weight to the front use big lead sinkers ;) Love my Revo 3.3 :D

Knows, I have just enough. Enough to make me content, enough to make me want a little more, but if I don't get it, I'll be OK.

after several hours of work completely taking my Jato apart and then putting it back together... my full set of stainless steel screws are done :D
DSCF3075.JPG
if you value your RC and want to keep it in better condition, i would recommend the stainless screws upgrade. as i'm sure you can see from the picture, there are a pile of extra screws in the kit i got :D

for anyone that don't know about the kits, here's a link for mine http://www.rcplanet.com/Stainless_Steel ... tra018.htm

as well as i would recommend the site i got them from which is http://www.rcplanet.com/

one thing i did notice when having it apart was that my axles were starting to twist... means i will probably have to get some new ones soon :roll:
