Default new revo set ups

i just want to see photos of what everyone is runnig. (revos only please). i am looking for a new set up that i havent seen yet. i want to see big block kits and new ideas. i think that the revo has kinda gotten into a rut that everyone is following. i hate seeing revo with os .18tm,eb mods. i want to see 28's 32's 21's. break the mold someone please! i saw a mod on a truck that i will post a photo of latter the is new and i have never seen it done before. let me see what you are doing!! you can look in my photos to see 3 of my 6 revos i will put the rest in latter. Also what does every one think about the Qoncepts bb kit? lets hear what you have to say.

Big Block kits turn Revos from well balanced race-able machines into over powered and out of balance piles of waste.

easy now i didnt start this for people to talk bad and dog me. what are you runing? i like the fact that i can hit trips and quads with out a problem. that others have to double double. do you get my drift. i have a revo with a os 18 eb mods. i just have the need for speed and raw power 3.3s and .18s just dont have the top end.

it was good for a while but it just wasnt geting the right feel from that motor. it has good low and top but it has no mid. it may have been the pipe that i was runing. but it just didnt have what i was looking for.

I never talked bad about you just the concept of putting an engine in a truck. It's the truth.

A Revo was built for certain things, sadly its distribution of weight was not set up for a big block engine.

Why not try another truck if it is the power you seek. A Truggy is a huge power difference.

i have been looking to get a truggy. i want to get a losi 8t but it is out of but price range right now. i will get one latter on this year. i would trade a revo to any one that has a 8ight-t. but for now i will stick to my revos. but i will say that you are right about the weight of the revo. that is why i have to shave pounds in other places. but i have done really well with my set ups.
