Unhappy Not sure what to do.

Fairly new to truck as I have been into planes most of my life. Bought a couple of T-Maxx's off a friend real cheap. Love the trucks run great and bash hard with little to no breakage. Ok problem is I bought a motor to build a truck with and kinda looking for some suggestions on what to do with it.
The motor is a GO B21

Bought a Maxx .21 Big Block extended chassis has not arrived in mail yet to see if it will fit.

Just looking for help or any ideas.

If the engine is not a bump start only engine. You should not have any issues. The TMAXX is a damb good truck.

It is a pull start. I should also add the motor is almost the same size of a maxx tire.

If it mounts on the engine mount you should get with the ext chassis, you've solved one prob. Depending on which Tmaxx you have and would use for donor parts, diffs and driveshifts may need upgrading. My 2.5 needed diffs and metal cvds after a Fantom 18 engine swap and I'm guessing your engine prob has more torque. Prob want a little stronger clutch as well.
