Big block kits!
I am planning to install a big block kit for my Revo. I called traxxas and they told me that I cannot use my roto-start anymore. They said i have to use a starter box. But I have seen some racers in the track that uses roto-start. I prefer using the roto-start coz it's easy to carry anywhere. Even in the park! Traxxas said there may be no room for roto-start. Hmmmmm! Has anybody done it using a roto-start? I'm planning to install my sts.30 on it!

newera bb mounts allow for rotostarts. i have a 3.3revo with an axial .32, and a 2.5revo with an xtm457 and special aluminum upper rear a-arms to clear the starter.the blue head is the xtm, the gray one is the .32. no chance of a starter box with these.

here's another angle of the axial32 revo after more mods. there is atleast an 1/8 inch between the rotostart and the upper rpm a-arm with the suspension fully bottomed out.

Thank you very much for the info. Your mods looks pretty cool! I'm planning to drop an sts.30 on mine!
