    Revo 2.5r motor upgrade for basher build

    Im stuck on these three engines for my revo 2.5r upgrade/basher build.

    1.http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...e-w-Pull-Start

    2.http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...e-w-Pull-Start

    3.http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...in-Start-Combo

    I really dont wanna have to do a ton of work to get one of these to fit but I don't think it will be that bad and if anyone could recommend a pipe and header that would be awesome thanks guys

    Easiest one to fit would be the picco.. It has great power for your revo.. Add a rear mounted ERCM pipe with it and hang on

    I understand that, you could search for a thread on how to.. Look for vid.. Lots of info out there. If you go with the picco .26 you can use the same linkage you have now , just have to adjust it. Make sure you zero your servo before you put the horn on tho.. The big blocks on your list will take a lot of work to get a good linkage setup..

    If you want to use a pull start big block motor you'll need the new era big block mount which is hard to come by. Otherwise your stuck with using a bump starter. The picco .26 and mount can use a pull start also.
    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is! BB Revo

    You have to get the ofna mount for the picco! There is another mount on ebay that's made for the picco.26 it's better cause it gives more adjustment for gearing choices..don't get the traxxas mount for the picco! I would go with a good rear mount pipe cause the picco .26 is a mid block..

    I run that picco Red Dot, it's very nice.It's got a ton of power you realy don't need anything bigger.It goes in easy with that ofna mount.The exhaust I run is the trinity.It's loud, most run the THS.

    You capitalized the word two, spelled "thing" instead of think, "land" instead of and, and forgot to use these,,,,,,,.

    Any one have a way to put a roto start on the picco
    I seen a thread on it but none of the links for the required
    Parts worked and I already have the roto start handheld

    Yes.. Did you buy the picco?? Did it come with a pull start?? If so there is a OWB there already.. Hex shape. The ofn 50010 works with that OWB..
