Default 3.3 Engine stripped down...what to do?

So I chewed up the starter shaft on my 3.3 engine. Ended up stripping it down to the block and cleaning everything. Now I'm trying to decide on getting a new mill from traxxas or what. I was thinking of getting a new shaft and doing a little porting the sleeve and modding the crank but I'm not sure.

How much pinch should a well broken in 3.3 still have?
While I've got it stripped what should I replace...piston, sleeve, bearings?

not sure on what the pinch should be but by the time you buy a new piston and sleeve you can almost get a new 3.3 on the traxxas trade in program and get a new engine you just send in your old one and and i cant remeber how much it costs im thinking a little over 100 but could be wrong so someone correct me if iam
