    Ok thanks!
    If I was to install a 3.3, how would the stock drive train in my Revo handle the additional torque?

    Rebuild or replace?

    Looks like my worst fears are confirmed. My 2.5 starts up, gets warm, loses compression and dies.
    Spoke to my local traxxas dealer about it and in his opinion, it's pointless to rebuild the engine...

    Went to take my Tmax out for a spin this weekend after replacing the OWB and it would stall every time I gave it the throttle. It looks to me that the clutch is engaging 100% and refusing to slip...

    Ok. Will do. I'm thinking additional problems though simply because compression feels extremely high. Likened to a cylinder full of fuel. I dd fully clear it but pulling on the string is really hard....

    Hmmm. The OWB is responsible for high compression when pulling on the string as well as poor recoiling??
    Even when it pulls and recoils perfectly when I remove the glow plug?

    Been having a blast with my Tmax 2.5 but this weekend I've run into a problem.
    For some reason all of the sudden it's got so much compression that the pull string recoils very slowly.

    Thanks guys. I'll go with the spring header. I just completed a total rebuild of a T max so it's posible I have the wrong manifold.
    I have the stock spur gear which I know is correct.
