Just for consideration, if you go with a Traxxas platform, you will be limited to only a dozen engine choices. If you go with any Truggy platform, you will have the option for over a 100 engine choices.

why? I always assumed with the BB conversion it would take any BB.

Once you try putting a BigBlock in you run out of room real quick and some engine headers are more of a pain than others. The Revo was designed primarily for a small block footprint. Carb linkage is another headache.

If the 3.3 isn't enough motor for you, O.S. makes the .21tm that is a direct drop in, then of course there is the issue of other parts breaking!

Agreed, but from the people i know who "had" to have the OS motor they had more issues with the center diff and clutch than it was worth. And if your spending the coin on the platinum i would think you were planning on racing it, therefore the 3.3 is plenty of power.

Really you need to say what your plans are. If you plan on racing is there a MT class? In a lot of areas this class is getting pretty small or no longer a class.

I would go with the Platinum..It has most of the hop ups that you need to race already on it..I built one up right before they announced the release of the Platinum..it would have saved me a whole bunch of money....If your going to go the Truggy route..DONT GET A HYPER ST..IT HAS TO BE THE MOST OVERATED POS on the market..and yes i did own one..
