Default Picco Max .26 or Traxxas TRX 2.5??

I bought a .26 conversion kit made specifically for the Picco Max .26 from New Era Models. Obviously, this would be a 1 HP increase over the TRX 2.5 which would mean more power. I am curious if the speed would decrease because the Picco only runs 32,000 RPM while the TRX 2.5 runs nearly 50,000. This has been a concern over the last few days, but then I thought with the extra power I could run a smaller spur and larger clutch bell because of the extra power. Which would really be a better engine all around for the N. Rusty?
Please Help.

A .26 in a Rusty?

The .26 will last a lot longer and produce an insane amount of torque. You might need to upgrade your tranny for it to be able to handle the power. I've heard that the TRX is a nightmare when it comes to tuning.

I am excited about really changing the gearing in this car and getting the Ofna/Picco .26 Max. I must disagree that the TRX 2.5 is bad. I think it's very easy to turn, but for whoever thinks different just run it slightly rich to avoid heated it up. I always have this problem if I run tank after tank in hot/humid michigan weather.
