Default You may find that the trans,

Will not hold up too well! When I droped in a Ofna Force .25 in my XTM kit it smoked 2 tranny's in as many days and I was only breaking it in! When I blipped the throttle to clear the engine it did this! I went and bought some aluminum and steel tranny gears from RRP and Golden Horizon! So far so good but, I did have to replace the reverse output gear (stock plastic) when I got on it in reverse! Other than that it weights a bit more and you should have some good shocks on there for the added weight!

Yup tranny will suffer, you need to stuff a UE 8mm FOC in the tranny(not aluminum gears), then some aluminum spider cups in the differentials, and last but not least some nice solid aluminum shocks, cause if you start to jump the truck, which Im sure you will, youll need some heavy duty shock oil to support the engine weight, and be able to land monster jumps.
