New engine for REVO 3.3
« on: December 27, 2017, 01:48:10 PM »
Hi everyone....

I'm new to the forum and i'm looking for some advice/opinions.

My TRX3.3 died and I'm trying to decide what engine to buy.
-I do not race....I like to have fun...
-Low end power is important to me.
-I don't like to screw with tuning too much.
-more time spent on bmx tracks and fields.....some road use.

I would like to stay in the 150-200 price range and have an easy drop in replacement.

any thoughts?
Thanks in advance!

Any reason not to Install a brand new 3.3? They hit your price point. Maybe try a tuned pipe for a change In performance

no good reason to not install another 3.3.......
i have read a lot of other posts from other forums that say the 3.3 isn't as reliable as other engines.
reliabilty is always a concern.

This one is the way to go imo. When I worked at Great Hobbies we sold many and people loved them. Better performance and I think cheaper then stock, but it's still 100% bolt in.

Thanks for the info.
I was considering that one as the main alternative, but how do you get around the carb being smaller.....air filter too big to stay on....?
Also, maybe you would know.... Would the .21 bolt in the same way, or would the truck require mods?
Thanks in advance!

air filters are universal, the guys at great hobbies will get ya what you need. Bigger motors like a .21 are big blocks and need more parts to bolt in.
