Questions?? nitro rustler 2.5 or 3.3

So today my good o'll 2.5 lost compression and just am going with a new engine. i really liked the 2.5 and did do wheelies but am still power hungry. so would a 3.3 be to much power and blow the tranny or something or will it work. ( i can hadle the power)

my brother has a 3.3 in his rustler and has not had any problems. It definitley gave him more power.

You will be fine and happy!

If your worried about messing up your car then I would just up to the 3.3 but They are right, there are better options out there.
