haha any bigblock is overkill for revo unless it's an old kyosho gs.21 but that's what it's for overkill...thing will fly...a guy at my track had one with a picco.26 small block man that thing was quick...and i've read somewhere of a guy running a ninja .21 which is a great motor and it kickin some tail.....when and if i get a revo i'll most likely go with sts though cause they're inexpensive and powerful

.46 fits so nice too. i would be done with it but a minor surgery has slowed me down in the shop. lil hard to stand with one leg casted up right now! lol. i have a few more parts to make. and as soon as it runs i will post a video! i think i'm gonna keep going with motor size till stuff really explodes. but i think .46 may be max for this!! o let u know soon!
