Traxxas Nitro Jato Review

To help you choose this rc truck, below are some feedback and reviews:

"Only Jato comes equipped with a sealed, internal two-speed transmission and the TRX 2.5 Racing Engine™, the most powerful small block engine available in any RTR car or truck. Together they provide explosive out-of-the-box acceleration and 55+mph top speed that simply blows everything else away." - Traxxas Website

In all honesty, if you are a fan of 1/10 scale 2wd stadium rc trucks, then the Traxxas Nitro Jato is probably the best model for 2005. It has won best in durability, best in speed, and best in acceleration awards.

Just look at the speed comparison:

Traxxas Jato - 55mph !
Traxxas Nitro Rustler - 47mph
Team Losi XXX-NT Sport RTR - 45mph
Duratrax Nitro Evader ST RTR - 37.3mph
Associated RC10GT RTR - 36mph

No other ready to run model even comes close to this performance!

"The Jato is an inspired design that deserves credit not merely for being different but for being better. The Jato blends competition-worthy performance with RTR convenience and new-driver friendliness—not just in terms of being assembled for you, but in its reliability and ease of operation once it's out of the box. Hopefully, we'll see a lot of guys at the track getting started with a Jato and sticking with nitro power because Traxxas really did it right." -
