Default Trx 2.5

Is it worth it to upgrade my old t-maxx to a 2.5 engine? Any feedback appreciated

The answer is yes, most definitely! The 2.5 makes so much more power than the old TRX. 15 it's not even funny. You'll need to get the header and tuned plastic exhaust as well, and since it's a slide carb, figure out some way to make the linkage work (the new Maxx has a bellcrank post...you may have some space on your chassis to mount this). Stock wlywheel, clutch assembly and clutchbell fit right up. Your EZ-Start should work, although a pull start and Roto-Start are viable options too. Remember to seal areas such as the carb and backplate, and follow the Traxxas break-in directions. They are much different from any other break-in procudure.
