Default T maxx motor ?

I have a 2.5 maxx with an os cvrx .18 but want bigger power but not wanting to buy the BB conversion. So what is the biggest motor at a decent price.

You can trade in your TRX 2.5 and get the TRX 3.5 for a decent price.

+1, about $130.00 or so for a trade in. OS18TM is about 195-210 depending on where you get it, and your pullstart and exhaust work. A TZ is less for teh engine, but with the upgrades to make it work in your maxx is about 200 or so.

I don't have the 2.5 in it I have an os .18. The 2.5 is in my xxx-nt. So trade in isn't an option. I would sell the os and get a different motor.

Sell the o.s. and buy a 3.3 engine. its very fast and you don't need the BB conversion.
