Questions?? Revo Big-Block...HELP

hi im new to the forums, and ive been working on a BB Revo for a few weeks now, and all thats left is suspension clearance. i installed a go engines .28 6-port, and a 7mm offset rear arm, and the pull start wont clear the suspension by about 2-3mm, other than a starter box, what are my options?? any thing that would fit?? anyone done this before?? ...i used the traxxas BB kit. i can post pictures if someone tells me how to.

I put a Picco .28 on mine and used a roto start I had to get alittle creative but I cant remember what I did but it was easy, the other hurdle to jump is getting the throttle linkage to operate perfectly. BTW I could not drive the car after I big blocked it,I basically ruined the truck. It was so powerful a very experienced driver could not finesse it around the track,it would not keep the front wheels on the ground and would almost always flip all the way over when it shifted into 2nd gear. Very uncontrollable but fun.

I would not bother, back in the day I put a picco 26 big block in mine using a quoncepts? kit and all it did was wheelie every where then destroyed the diffs and tranny. After a rebuild in went a os tz and it was much more fun and cheaper too

If you go with a BB i would go with the newera mount this will solve any linkage issues and the motor mount is adjustable
