Default what to do.....?? Suggestions anyone

Ok so i got into the hobby about 4 months ago and went crazy. I started with an Electric stampede, then got a good deal on a revo and nitro sport, then got a jato, and s-maxx, and then another revo. ALL USED. I know its a bad idead for a n00b, leason learned, If i could go back in time i would have bought ONE new truck and thats it.

I am kinda getting overwhelmed because they all have small problems that prevent me from using them, mostly the engines and thats why i am thinking about converting them brushless or upgrading the engine.

I plan on leaving my JATO Nitro and ONE REVO Nitro BB and tats where you guys can help me out.

I am getting the NEW ERA MOUNT and am trying to decide on a good BB engine that wont blow my budget which is about $300.

I was thinking about the Dynamite Mach 2 Big Red .28 engine for $150. but havn't seen too much info on them. ANy other suggestions? thanks for the help

you might get some better responses from the MT section.

For a MT a big red rips. Has so much power i would say in a revo you might have to do a bit of transmission work on it. I gurantee you wont hate it though and it wont have any problems goin fast and pullin on 2 wheels instead of 4. Same with brushless the torques is anourmous and if its a older revo tranny might be an issue.

It is a newer REVO i believe, and i have two REVO 3.3 one going Bruhsless and one going BB.

Compared to the LRP .28 which one would you suggest?

Cant beat the big reds power to cost. A lrp .30 is the only thing that out performs it for price range also no engine will last for ever but any engine you do go with will last a long time depending on how much time you take on break in and proper tuning.

The Dynamite engine should be a great engine, but are you sure you want it in a REVO? I'm not bashing the Revo, It is a great Truck, with a small block, but a bigger engine leads to Problems with Transmission, diffs, Driveshafts, and more.
I have a buddy with a Revo and he put in the JL .26 Red Dot. He hasn't got the thing to run right after a whole season. The other guy had a complete stock Revo and put in the SH .18 and exhaust, and the truck runs great.
The Dynamite engines are made by SH as well as the LRP .28. I am not sure who makes the LRP .30, it looks different than the others.
