    WTT Traxxas Revo w/new OS .18tz motor

    Hey guys... I have a Traxxas Revo 3.3 that I ran for a total of about 7 tanks of gas. The 3.3 motor is making a weird rattling noise, so I'm guessing it's in need of a rebuild. I decided instead of rebuilding it I just bought a brand new OS .18tz. I modified the TZ to fit the Revo, but I never ended up mounting it a breaking int he motor. The TZ is seriously brand new, never been started. I redid the shocks with 55wt oil, and I have a traxxas carbon fiber wing on it. The tires are stock and have 90% + tread left on em. I barely drove this thing. It is a BLAST, it's just with two young kids, I don't have the time to invest tuning and racing it. Plus, I need an amp, bad. I have many pics at home, but I am at work right now so I just have a couple. I can get whatever pics/vids people want, other than a running one of the new motor, as I am not gonna break it in just to get a vid of it. I have a running vid of it w/the 3.3 though. Comes with MANY accessories (tool box, filters, extra crystals for radio and truck, etc...).

    I am looking to trade it for some CA stuff. I really need an amp that will at least to 1200wrms (true watts), and I would also be interested in some other stuff like 1/0 cable, components amp for my JL XR 6.5's compontents, etc...

    Make some offers!!!

    This was w/the 3.3 motor....


    That's all I have on my photobucket acct right now, I can have my wife upload some tonight when she gets home... it'll just be a couple hours

    that TZ is a beast in the Revo! I had one when I was racing them before I moved to the LST. Free bump for a sweet ride
    BTW, the tune in that vid is WAY off. Could be the cause of the engine issues

    Yah... a little lean The problem is that if I richened it up at all it wouldn't run... I changed the front bearing in the motor and it ran perfect for about 10 minutes and then right back to lean and hot... Traxxas said it was prob a bad motor to begin with but I decided to just pull the trigger on an OS motor.... Just never put it in
