    that .21 engine won't fit in the engine mounts, and I don't think that the drive train could hold up to it.

    very true dj it might hold for a short time but the torque of the .21 would tear up the tranny pretty quick.

    than what can i do if anything to my evader to make it faster.

    well you can change the gear ratio, get a different fuel with a higher amount of nitro, replace that engine with a engine of the same size, but more power. Your best bet would be to get different fuel, and put a different gear raio.

    hmm well I don' know how much power is in the stock evader motor but maybe try the Megatech m16. What kind of engine is in that st?

    hmm well its not in the big boyz class of engines so I am thinking anything .18 and down will work. I know the M-16 has 1+HP, and for that .18 im not sure. Maybe try different gearing that might give you the speed you want, without haveing to buy a different engine.

    well I saw a pic of that engine the .18 and it has a threaded shaft, does the ss have that also? the engine is by O.S. and it said it has a 20% larger displacemenet then a .15 . Myabe try gearing and if you still arent happy with it then maybe a different engine. Check out what badone had said at www.hpiracing.com that is there home site hope we helped.

    ya it is threaded but the traxxas stuff worked after i shotened the shaft. the hpi motor is very strong and works great. hope all this helped.
