I don't even know what a Slayer is, but I'm buying of these NR engines for my Ofna Ultra Worlds II. (Old race car that's now a basher.)

No that wont fit unless you buy a big block conversion kit. Most powerful drop in motor is probably the os 18.

i think the 3.3 has more bottom end and the .18 has more top end...but if you wanted I think the picco midblock motor fits...you'd have to read up on it as I am not 100% sure

RB makes a motor just for the revo chassis and I a shure it will do what you want and Picco does also I belive.

OS .18TM with a solid back plate for bump box use only, with a OS 18TZ head button and shims.
I would just get the TZ, and put the TM crank in it.. just cut the roto start pin off the crank, and swapem out.. just my 2 cents




this clutch is a must have in any traxxas nitro..

If you buy all these items you can't go wrong... Only thing is you would need a revo bump box.

Sirio makes a direct drop in for the 3.3 I used it in my T-maxx. I dont remember the name or number as it was 5 years ago, but I do remember the engine was balls to the wall power, and speed. Easy to tune, fast as hell. Cost me about $150. I sold the Tmaxx with the engine at 8 gallons, and the guy I sold it to got another 5 gallons out of it. No mods, no rebuild, no bearings or rod replacement. Look into it, it was one of the best engines I ever had. I run .21's and .28's now, or I would have bought another
nothing to see here................................

The only way to install a big block such as the Mach 427 is to install the Revo big block conversion set but if you want really good power with a big block i would recommend the Vspec.. its very popular big block conversion for the Revo which is basically what the Slayer is but in the 2.5 chassis. You can with a bit of work slide the Axial 28 which is a lot of power. Either way you would need to get the installation kit TRA5360X. I have ran my Revo with a Werks B7 Pro and it was really good.

Hope this helps.
Not much to put here....
