Default XTM 24.7PRO/Picco .26 /OS 21RG(x)

If i upgrade my engine to the XTM 24.7PRO, will i need to make any tranny mods? How does this compare to the Picco .26 or OS 21RG(x) as far as torque/speed/and power?!?!?!?

I've had the picco, never had any tranny problems with it. Im currently running the OS .21 RG. I can smoke a .26 on the top end, but my torque isnt as insane as a .26 wasp, or picco. I still get wheelies real easy, but theres a world of difference between a .26, and a .21. The XTM pro is supposedly a notch below a picco, or wasp, in power. Although i have seen an XTM pro run, and i thought it was as fast, or faster than the picco i had, and the wasp my friend runs. All of those motors are good choices.

Yes, the .21 RG definitely kills the .26 motors on the top end. Funny thing is, i geared it to a 13-52 for more torque, and i still kill the picco, and wasp on the top end. My buddies wasp is geared 16-49, for top end. But like i said, although i get wheelies still, its no where near the same amount of torque a .26 puts out.

What truck is this RG in. Please don't take this the wrong way. But I have a hard time understanding how this is so. For instance I have the picco . 26 in my Donimator. And My truck is pretty fast. I also have a maxx with a hyper 4p which if I'm not mistaken is about the same hp as the rg. I also have a friend with a 8 port in his maxx and picco .26 in his savage. I will do a head to head this weekend picco .26 dom against the picco savage and tmaxx. do you think the rg can keep up with the 8p. THis engine has a very good Top end?

i have a savage with the 24.7 and it kills!tons of torque! what i did was mount the carb off the .21BB on to the 24.7.wow! like night and day. i have no experience with the other 2 engines mentioned,other than they are also killer mods for the savage. anyhow, i think whatever choice you make you are gonna see a great increase in power. good luck.
