Default engine size?

I have a Slayer with the 3.3 , I was wondering if changing to a smaller size engine would help it race better, it seems like it just has too much power for the track I run at. It's great for bashing, but too much for the track. Any suggestions on what a good size would be to put in this pig? Also would anyone suggest tuning out second gear for racing, does anybody have any experience with these ?

From what I've seen first gear is a little short for some straights. You could try running it a little richer to tame down the power.
You could swap out the 3.3 for a 2.5. I don't know what other engines just drop in.

just make it single speed and set it up w/ that traxxas setup. The 3.3 is a solid mill for that truck.

What are the thoughts on changing the starting system over to a starter box system? Can it be done?

I think just about anything that can be done on a revo can be done on this truck.
