Dynamite Mach 2 .19T 5 Port Traxxas Replacement Engine w/Slide Carburetor
Ok, after running a gallon through engine, i have run into a serious problem which has dissapointed me alot. The bearings are garbage! The rear bearing tore itself apart and destroyed half my engine and the front bearing leaks like crazy. I never encountered an airleak due to the front bearing but i'm pretty sure if the rear bearing hadn't died and i kept on running the engine, it would have happened. At the end of the day, i had to spend 100 bucks to replace both bearings with better ones, (ceramic bearings are recommened) the piston, sleeve, and underhead. Thanks Dynamite. But, apart from that problem, this engine is fantastic. Once the engine hits the first gallon it runs like a champ. It's got power, speed, economy, rock-solid reliablity and it's a piece of cake to tune. If you get this engine, replace the bearings with ceramic ones before you start it for the first time. It might be a little bit expensive but you'll thank yourself because you'll have so much fun with this engine for a long time. Bearing dimmensions - Front: 7*19*6 mm Rear: 10*19*5 mm

Very nice engine for the price. Bought this once my 3.3 went bad. Doesn't have as much top end as the 3.3 but only by a little. Great bottom end. Lots of torque. I wouldn't recommend it in a tmaxx or a revo, but for a jato or rustler anything small its great.
