    Hey, im just lookin for some insight on what it takes to put a big block into a Tmaxx 3.3. I have been lookin into a .26 or a .28 and as far as i can tell it is a straight drop in with the right motor mounts. I have even considered the 5-HP CEN 7.7 cc engine. I imagine after putting that much power through the 3.3 drivetrain you would just be breakin stuff left and right.
    Any insight would help alot, thanks guys.

    Yeah, sorry i was afraid i made that confusing. To sum it all up i want to put more power in my tmaxx 3.3. Ive been looking at putting the .26ci engine (stock 3.3 is .21ci) in there and i just wanted to know what supporting mods that i would have to do to make it work, Such as lengthen frame, new exaust, new chassis brace, or trany, axles, and drivelines
    Thanks agian

    the deal is, that he is trying to put a big block in the rc car that was designed to hold a small block... takes quite a bit of modification... too bad these things wernt chevy's

    Let me get this clear in my mind. There are big block and small block engines for RC cars? This sounds way to complicated for me.

    Yipper. they have big blocks now . lol. I had a nitro Tmaxx that was bad ass, at the time the 2.5hp was the popular. I had an on road HPI car that was clocked by the fuzz at 63 mph with 2 speed tranny and vette body.

    LoL..yeah jus like the real thing, was alot of fun, started to run outa places to run mine, plus they get expensive, etc.

    The tmaxx 3.3 is a pretty popular 4x4 rc truck now a days and when they have full aluminum chassis and all the best running gear and of course the high dollar crome wheels, they sell for over 1300 bucks on ebay. There is definatly ALOT of different mods you can do to these things, be prepared to pay alot and become addicted, expecially if you cant work on your trial rig at the time.

    I sort of figured they had to be pricey, but what isn't these days? As the saying goes, you have to pay to play.
