    TRX 3.3 oh man!

    Have a tmaxx 3.3 , was topping it out and the engine just stalled on me , went to start it back up and the flywheel wont budge so im guessing something broke inside their, what choices do i have as far as a direct drop in? are their any .21s that could go in their with out any conversion.

    Sounds like you were running the engine too lean and it seized. Did you take the glow plug out and turn the engine over? If it's still froze, then you broke the rod. The Traxxas rod is scored down the middle and will split if the piston comes to a sudden stop.

    If you have a Hobbytown USA close by, take the engine to them. Traxxas has a warrantee program and they will swap your engine for a new one for only $115.00. No questions asked ! Or you can contact Traxxas (located in Plano, Texas and order a new rod.
