Yes, But the 3.3 in the 2.5 chassis is a AB mod engine with a trinity race pipe and it will get up and go impresively.....
The R&b is also an AB mod engine and as much as I hate to say it it is sometimes to much power...
It is alway on the edge of out of control...

I see you have 2 RB523's how do you like them? Are they both modded? How are they non-modded?

One is a AB modded R&B and it is insane!!!!
The other is a Sirio(stock) and is is also very fast!!!
The R&B rev's to the moon!!!! and is almost to much to handle..

What is the difference between the Sirio and the RB? How are they on the tune and stuff? Power? 1-10 rating 10 is the best

They are both the same size with only slight differences...
The Sirio tunes, and hold a tune very easily and for stock motor it rates a 10 on the scale...
The R&B is modded by Adam and it also holds tune very nicely... It rates a 12+ on the scale but only because it is modded.... Otherwise it would also be a 10...

Cool, the only thing that I dont like about them (although I have never owned one) is the price

Yes, They are a little more costly BUT, Everything used to manufacture the engines are top shelf materials. The crank, The piston ,the sleeve, connecting rod etc... are all high end.
I have 6 gallon of Byron's 20 pecent fuel ran through the Sirio and it still feels like it is a fresh engine it has so much pinch left.... The R&B has 3 gallon through it and feels like it had to srill be broken in.... In fact the compression of the engine will support the weight of the entire truck just by holding the pullstarter..... You really do get what you pay for...
Yes, they cost more but if you think of it on a large sacle.. The longevity and performance of the higher end engines out weigh the cost.....

I would get one, if they sold a model without the tuned pipe... I have a THS pip already... without the pipe, it would cost about 60 bucks less, putting it right in my price range

I finally finished going through all the pages here, and noticed 2 things.
1) Didn't see any real customized throttle setups to eliminate the heavy TRS for quicker throttle response and less pack drain. Just have to run a Fail Safe and know how to intentionally traction roll in case of major servo or radio failure.
2) Also didn't notice anyone running swaybars. I just got a set for mine because during the summer it's more of a race truck than a basher.

Later this summer should be able to put up some vids of a 2.5 Revo running an OS18TM going against a brushless slash. Should be interesting.

Nice. I did a setup like the 4-Tec uses on mine. 2 collars, a 4-Tec throttle return spring(nice and soft and goes on the linkage), and some spring steel. Wish I could get pics out of my phone to put on here of my setup. Body doesn't look so hot anymore, but the setup itself is good.

Heres the latest pics of my highly modded baby,virtually Plat spec now only with a proper engine,finished this shell yesterday and swapped out the Tekno wing mount and Proline High Downforce wing for the Traxxas items and the mount feel loads more stable...Apart from my Baja SS,this is my baby and certainly my fav nitro....

Before pics,this is a 2.5 shell as I put a 3.3 chassis on her

Looks great but the purple chassis? Did you paint it? How?
