You might want to try to post a similar question on The forum that traxxas has on thier web site. the Nitro Vee section use to be quit active and know ther are several who have upgraded to bigger engines. Traxxas also has a engine trade in program. I was able to get anotehr engine with out a problem. this was at least 2 years ago however. You can also get more information on this on the website

Maybe an O.S. .21 or a CMB .21 RS
Read this thread, it might help. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_6191963/tm.htm

I would try these : http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0093p?&C=GCU . A good .21 would be a little too much power for the traxxas plastic hull, it wouldn't be to good to go from an engine that is less than 1hp to an engine that is over 2hp. For the price of a new engine you may want to consider upgrading the whole boat.

any .15-.18 size engine is a direct drop in replacement,if you decide to go bigger,you would have to change motor mounts,upgrade to flex shaft,ditch the outdrive to somethin more performance oriented.......[:-]
