SELECTING A GOOD
ENGINE FOR REVO
The all-new Revo is an engineering marvel that blends innovative thinking,
sophisticated technology and high-tech materials to create the world’s
most advanced monster truck. Backed by nearly 2 years of research and
development, Revo is packed with revolutionary new design concepts and
benchmark driving performance. Never before has so much forward-thinking
technology converged on an R/C model. Revo is for the driver/enthusiast
who is ready to make the break from the status quo and experience the
precision-engineered total performance that only a Revo can deliver.
Such a good model needs a good engine too. If you would like your Revo
to be wheelie crazy then look for good low and top ends, one with no
modifications, either with pull start or EZ bolt start on.
An OS .18 TM, drops straight in to the Revo and works with the easy
start. It is definitely a great motor with lots of power such that it
is hard to keep front wheels on the ground. It is least 3 times faster
than the traxx.
The RB TM323 is a good choice as a direct fit engine and has a lot of
power in low and top ends! It also works with the EZ-start or a Picco
.26 Maxx made for the Revo /T-Maxx!!!
Mach .26 Traxxas Big Block conversion runs like a champ and is also
just as reliable as 2.5. A Picco p .21 and Wasp .26 are as fast as each
other but the wasp .26 has more power for hills so its comes down to
what you want to spend.
All of these motors except the OS may require a Big Block conversion
kit. But that’s something that needs to be checked out as that adds
to the total cost. An RB TM323 comes with a pipe, a manifold, AND the
necessary stuff to mount it.
So whatever engine you choose in the end the power comes into play.
Narrow down your choices according to the best suited needs. It also
depends on what tracks you want to run your RC model. Rough tracks would
need high power engines that would need lesser maintenance. If you choose
an engine that is not robust for rough terrains then that would be mean
shorter life span of the model. On the other hand, those models running
on cleaner tracks can afford to have engines that need more care to
