why do you want to mount such a large engine in your rs4? ther eis suck a thing as overkill, my stock OS would spin the tires easily, so there is no point in having a more powerful engine than that, ti wont allow any higher acceleration either, if i were you and i wanted more power, go for the os 18tz os is rock solid, relaible, and powerful, plus im pretty sure the os 18 revs higher than the 3.3

If your touring car is getting beat by a monster truck, I would suggest the prblem lies elsewhere, because unless that revo was shot out of a cannon, it shouldnt be faster. Loosen your drive train up, look at the gear mesh, check the clutch, perform any sort of maintenance, TUNE the engine, wow...........

sounds liek you need to learn to tune if you are getting beat by a revo, for the pinions, you will needs the 19t and the 23t, spurs you need the 39t and 43t
