I had a Revo 3.3 & put the O.S 21tm engine in it, seemed like a decent engine & went well but didn't get a chance to really test it out because I sold the Revo, I also got rid of the electric start & put a Sullivan tiger drive on it, less weight & less hassles, The person I sold it to said it worked great.
For a steering servo the Savox sc 1256tg should work ok, around 20kg torque & .15 seconds or so @ 6.0v, use a 2s 6.6v LiFePO4 receiver battery pack for a little more speed.
For throttle, try the Savox sc 1258tg servo (12kg & .08 sec @ 6v) or the slightly less powerful Savox sc 1257tg servo (10kg).
I use the 1256 & 1258 in a 1/8 nitro buggy with a 6.6v LiFe battery pack & they work well, I was going to get them for my Revo as well before I sold it.
