I ran it one day, it ran great, the next day i went to start it and it would not stay running itself, about 2 seconds after i took my finger of the starter button it stalled. after a couple...

    Typical lifespan of trx 3.3

    This is my first nitro truck and I was wondering if I could get everyone's opinion on something. I have the tmaxx 3.3 and I was wondering what kind of lifespan these little engines have when following typical after run procedures etc.. I'm aware of the fact that it depends on how you treat the...

    TRX 3.3 troubles

    I know it has an air leak somewhere but no clue as to where. I've checked all screws and the plug. The backplate and carb are both sealed with rubber gasket compound (Permatex engine-safe gasket compound). The fuel system is completely sealed. There are zip ties around all the joints and the...

    Button head for a TRX 3.3?

    Does anyone know where I can find a button head for a Traxxas 3.3? I have never seen one but I have an after market cooling head that needs one. A shop name or link would be great.

    TRX 3.3 blown piston! *pics*

    My TRX 3.3 just blew a hole in the piston! Just doing straight runs in the park, and it just stopped after I filled another tank up. I knew straight away SOMETHING was broken. I had about 7 litres through it (2 gallons). I just ordered $350 of parts from Amainhobbies too :( Hitec...

    TRX 3.3 fits in 2.5?

    The TRX 3.3 fits in the 2.5 conversion kit? Do they use the same block or something?

    Killed my TRX 3.3

    Gents, I was running the car the other day at 50 degree weather and was running a bit cold. So I adjusted the needles and worked fine with the exception that it burned two plugs and showed too much compression on the third plug. I was using Traxxas Top Fuel 33% on my 3.3 revo. Well a couple of...

    which TRX 3.3 ??

    Well I've gotten tired of seeing my T-Maxx just sitting there collecting dust so I've decided to revive it. I'm gonna put the TRX 3.3 with ezstart in it but I'm not sure which one to get. I'm seeing two versions for the recoil style... an IPS shaft and a multi-shaft. Which one do I need for a...

    Question about the TRX 3.3

    I was thinking about exchanging my 2.5R for the 3.3. I was talking to a friend about it when he pointed something out to me. 3.3 cc translates into .20 ci I think, and according to my friend, it has the same exhaust outlet as the .15 does, and it looks that way to me. I guess what I'm trying to...

    trx 3.3 in the maxx....

    well done traxxas for bringing out a new bigger displacement engine. this is just my opinion but here it goes. the truck itself is basicly a revo without the fancy suspesion, and a larger displacement engine. maybe they should have made the engine a big block to rival the savage. I'm...
