    your lucky dude! I was up at a rc race last weekend and a jato was there and let me tell you they are fast! Run it and tell me what you think, and if anything could be redone on it!

    well i got a chance to break it in today.These things fly.. its a really plush ride from what i can tell, it shifts super smooth, almost too smooth that you cant tell it shifted, but that can be adjusted either way.For stock servo's id have to say it really turned quickly on fresh bat's.The stock weight oil in the shocks needs to be changed out for sure as it wouldnt rebound the greatest.I havn't really had a chance to lean it out yet but its pretty responsive even on the stock settings with the exception of idle turned down a hair.I mostly drove it on the street breaking it and it would break traction even at speed (fast) , the stock tires didnt even hold up to one after break in tank , maybe its just mine but i actually had a tire rip right in the middle of the tread.I think once i change out the stock radio gear and put my jr stuff in with the servo's and put a decent pipe on it,it will be a handful for sure.I hit a couple small jumps with it nothing serious, maybe 2 feet tall at about half throttle and it was flawless feeling, with a little suspension tweaks it should be neck and neck with my losi in the handling department.As with anything its gonna need your own little mod's but all in all im happy with it.[^]

    I don't know if its the same for your LHS but when I buy a car or a truck from them in the long run there more willing to help me if I have any problems with it unlike if I was to buy if off of ebay and then bring it to them if I have a problem. Kinda see what im saying?
