Default 3 Speed Transmission for Traxxas Revo

I am in the process of purchasing an OS .18TM for my Revo. I wanted to add a 3 speed transmission. Can anyone direct me to a site that has them?

Thanks,
Jason

I purchased the OS but haven't installed yet. I am trying to get an extended chassis from Traxxas (like the new 3.3 revo) but they are back ordered everywhere. I am putting rear breaks on the truck and the conversion requires the extended chassis.

cuz the revo has enough power big block would b over kill and if you are trying to get more speed 3 speeds rnt worth it!

Thanks, I've put aot of work into it. Oh... and on a side note, I have the Vantage chassis in mine and its the same length as stock. I'm going to extend mine with the Qoncepts long wheelbase axle carriers, so I can keep my Vanatage chassis and RPM arms on it.

Heres all my carbon fiber:

you dont have to have the ext. chassis to install the brakes but you will need the tranny halves and you will have to notch out the back area right behind the tranny.

if your racing the new chassis is awesome with my 3.3 and swept back arms it really calmed the truck down,it used to get upset when pushed hard on jumps now it takes them with full control.

are you also adding the center diff to make the brakes functional?

they will work with out it but it wont give you any bias.....
