    Biggest and baddest engine on a revo

    I just had gotten the revo platinum and had taken out the 3.3 motor and pipe. Now i am looking for the most powerful big block i could fit in there. I have a .26 picco red dot in my 5308 revo and am looking for something with even more power then my picco. What's the biggest big block engine i could get onto that thing? If i get another .26 picco red dot and have abmods do a drag mod would i see a BIG difference? Or would i get more power from a different big block?

    RE: Biggest and baddest engine on a revo

    Yes man .26 red dot. Have it modded by abmods and then get robinson steel internals for your tranny. because i know for a fact you will tear something up. The .26 is a beat of a motor to put into a revo. I put an axial .28rr in my revo and it was insane until i realized i was tearing up trannys and diffs. So I toned it down to a .26 and it was ok...still eats up diffs.
    I DIDNT BREAK IT, ITS JUST OPERATIONALLY CHALLENGED.

    RE: Biggest and baddest engine on a revo

    biggest and baddest would be the os .28 xz and the picco p3 .28. They both top out at about 2 hp on a real dyno with the picco making brutal bottom end and the os making great top end. The picco .26 maxx red dot after it was drag modded by adam would probably make the same power as a stock p3 or xz. So you could either spend 350 on modding a red dot or 200 on the p3. The os motor is a little pricey (270 or something like that)
