If you are dead set on not converting to the slide carb setup the best direct replacement engine is the the OS CVRX. Very user friendly and dependable. The engine will cost about $150. For about the same amount you can convert to the TRX 2.5. About $40 for the conversion kit and $110 for the pullstart engine. The 2.5 will out perform the CVRX but it is a beach to tune and keep tuned. If you can afford it, put in the Sirio. It is absolutely the best engine for the T-Maxx available without going to 21 conversion. Not difficult to tune and tons of torque/power. As a conversion it will cost about $300. Engine+conversion kit+new easystart system. Trinity does not have a pull starter for the new 18 available yet. Good luck.
