Default WTB engine for my T-MAXX

i have a old T-maxx with a worn old school style .15 traxxas engine in it.
looking to upgrade to something i can enjoy
im not looking for anything crazy just a decent engine to get this going moving around .18 and up as long as it will fit without any major mods
new or used (good compression)
i have several other sedans this is just my backyard basher so im trying to stay under $200.00
located in so cal

get a os .18tz not that expense. my friend has one in his tmaxx and loves it. i have the 3.3 tmaxx and i hate the 3.3. i race 1/8 scales buggy and truggy. going from a rapped ape to a slow dog 3.3 engine is new but traxxas engines are junk in book. ooohhh yeah in my 1/8 scales i run ninjas the grp line not the os based ones.

mungen .. thanks for the info ive heard alot of people saying the 18tz was good but no one said anything bout it in a tmaxx
i agree with you on the 3.3 i bought one for my jato and its just been a complete waste of my time so the darn thing just sits lol.
