I've always had good luck with the 3.3's. There are some people who had problems with the rod breaking (since the 3.3 used the same rod as the 2.5).

I always made sure the engine reached 200F during break in, and after break in I tried not to run them lean and I sold both my maxx and revo with engines still running strong after 3 gallons through each. The 3.3 has decent torque and revs pretty high as well. For the price, I think they're really good engines.

good engine's just have to watch the rod + inner bearing after 2 gallon's....

mine is at about 3 gallon's and the rod + bearing are cooked but the pinch is still FRESH!

preheating these during brek-in is a MUST IMO

it sit's in my box now lol
