Novarossi 2.5 Super Charged Engine w/51226-207 Tuned Pipe Set (T-Maxx) (Turbo Plug)
The engine seems like it will hold it's tune well, but performance in my opinion is not up to the 3.3. Also, the engine is not a direct fit for the new TMaxx because the shock towers really make it difficult to get the Rotostart in place if not impossible. You will probably need at least one old style Shocktower to make the Rotostart accessible. Finally, the muffler is a bit oversized in my opinion. On the plus side, I don't think this engine will hurt the reverse trans so that is a really good thing. I did install a new trans but ran plenty of tanks through it. You will get 2 or 3 carburetor restrictors, but they don't tell you what they do. I used the white one because it had the greatest tuning window. Overall, dependability wise in my opinion is better than the Traxxas engines. This engine idles sweet too!
