is there any replacement engine i can put in my t-maxx 2.5 that will out run a mgt
you could get a .21 conversion or a wasp .18 would probably fit in. i put mine in after the .21 upgrade so im not sure.
You should have no problem beating a MGT, is your engine worn out? Any hop ups on the truck? How much do much do you want to spend on an engine?
alls u have 2 do is put a novarossi picco engien in it
the truck is about a week old new air filter is all i have done to it..ill spend any amount i have to on an engine
get the ofna picco p2. It will cost around 200.00 depending on were you get it from. It is a direct fit to the 2.5 chassis even though it is a .21 motor. It comes with a special motor mount so it will fit.
Are you getting beat by one in top end or on a track?
How did you break in your engine?
im getting beat by the mgt in top end
just change youre gearing so youi have more top speed then.
what should i change if i start getting beat on the track
Speed should not be a problem on the track, keeping a four wheels planted around corners is, I use thicker oil in the shocks and lower the truck as much as posible. Also drop all the weight you can and rotating mass, ie. reverse and use lighter tire/ rim combos.
Also the best hop up for the track, a good high torque servo.
