    OH, pretty sure this is a TMAXX question for the TMAXX forum. Personally I have 3 TMAXX's, all with TRX engines... And 2 of them have been regular racers...

    Now, is the question the best "Drop in replacement" or are we asking about Big Block upgrades?

    How far do you want to take it? The TMAXX is one of the more versatile RC's out there as far as power plants are concerned...

    All depends on how much $$$ you want to spend. A TRX 3.3 will drop right in with no changes at all, and costs around $140. There are engines such as the Picco .26 max or red dot that cost around $225, or the OS .21 TM which normally goes for $280. All of those are drop in's and won't take too much upgrades, maybe new driveshafts eventually. Then pretty much anything bigger than a .28 is considered a big block and will require a bit of extra parts or custom fab, like a monoblock and new engine mount.

    Dynamite makes
    A .19 replacement engine that will work with the stock engine mount and is compatible with the Ez start

    All .28 and bigger engines (BB) will require a extended big block chassis
