    Hey guys, Let's just start off by saying I'm a newbie to the max, my new-to-me Traxxas Revo 3.3 is my first (running, barely) RC truck.

    traxxas 2.5, 2.5R and 3.3 horsepower?

    how much horsepower do these engines make? And what are the differences between 2.5 and 2.5R, some online articles say that the only difference is the blue cooling head but traxxas states that 2.5R makes 0.5 horse power more than the original 2.5, how come?

    I dont get it... (about nitro tuning, everyone is welcome! i need to know more!)

    Q1: What does LSN do, does it effects low rpm or low throttle? if i blip the gas ones (from zero to wide-open quickly, then immediately releasing the trigger) is it HSN or LSN? Q2: does HSN affects idle? Q3: the relation between LSN and idle crew, i can affect idle by either leaning the LSN or...

    Revo 2.5 big block upgrade(Engine suggestions?)

    I've never really bought a new nitro rc engine, but I would like to upgrade my Revo 2.5 that is on a 3.3 chassis to a big block as the extra power just sounds nice. I know I will need a conversion kit, but what I'm not sure about is the engine I want to choose. Every thread I've found off google...

    Does different nitro content really make a big impact on a car's performance?

    Q1: is it worth purchasing 20 or 25% nitro in Europe when u need a license for it? Q2: I'm running a stock 3,3 engine and wanna know if switching from 20% to 16% really is a night and day difference? Q3: Will fuel with a lower nitro content decreases the life of the engine? Q4: I'm into buying...

    Well like the title says, I finally am getting an actual Revo and not the e-revo 1/16th I have now. I finally put money down on it at my local hobby shop.

    Need some expert advice/help!

    TLDR; Top end slow. Slipper clutch replaced with heavy duty. Shift point adjusted. Already leaned out to the max. Long story short my Revo 3.3 is not performing that well after ~11 tanks. I've read it takes some time for the 3.3 to open up but it should be performing better than it is right...

    LRP .28 or LRP .30?

    Hey everyone. I've got an extra Revo 3.3 that I want to make into a big block project car. I plan to attempt to make a new era styled mount but for now I already have the traxxas big block kit. I am fine with going the bump start route and I really don't want to move the transmission forward...
