I highly doubt the drivetrain will hold up, unless the surface is low grip, which is quite unlikely I'm sure. The Revo can barely handle the stock motor in high stress conditions, I doubt a super high end .21 will help much!

Wait a minute..... off-road is expensive and drag racing isn't???? yeah right......





If you seriously wanna drag sell off the revo, or part it out and goto grand motorsports and get a real drag chassis built for a .21......trust me you'll be far ahead of the game....

if you really wanted to turn it into a dragster, you would want a lot longer chassis. and probly metal gears. draging is probly more expensive thn off-road too. just to let you know. i know a guy that made his into a dragster. but the whole thing is custom. a huge extended chassis, real wide a-arms, forward only. i mean the only stock part on it i think are the body mounts. it will take big $ to turn a revo into a real competitive dragster. your better off getting an actualy drag kit.
