RB Tm523 and Picco .26 maxx's are great power upgrades and fit relativly easily

hope you like it I was not thrilled with the power of the .21tm and it was modded with ceramics.. it was incredibly reliable and just so you know Drill out the stinger on the Resonator pipe and your set.. dont bother getting an aftermarket pipe

Byrons is one of the best if not the best, 30% is fine. You have a smaller window for a proper tune without shimming it but it's fine. IMO with that mill you would have been better off inverting the stock clutch instead of dropping coin on what you already bought. If your LHS will pick up some 20% that would be just fine for what your doing and it will save you some money.

Robin's modded engines really come alive with 30% nitro. That 21tm will be a great motor once you get some more fuel through it. Have fun and make sure you let me know how it goes. I didn't compare side by side, but with Robin's extreme mod, the 21tm revs up there right along side the 3.3.

yupp

my plan is to run it for about 10 more tanks @ about 50% max throttle....

i know after about 6 tanks u can start running it hard but i like to be on the safe side and do more than what is required...

when i get everything that i ordered and get it running (all i need now is FUEL)!

ill post videos

and pics of my revo

Default not an easy task!

I have a Revo 3.3 and purchased the LRP zr.30 engine. There is NO engine mount currently made for this engine to work on the Revo. The Trx big block mount will in no way work. I had to custom build a mount for mine. It is working "ok", but I will have to come up with something better and hopefully lighter. If someone has a better solution I am ALL ears! I LOVE the power of this beast. I have all metal everything as this engine will break everything in the Revo lol... I am however thinking of changing back to an engine that will directly fit in the Revo with a normal big block mount. So to be clear, you will have to do some heavy modifications to make the LRP zr.30 work on the Revo! Hope this helps. Blessings!
