    me and monster have been together in talking baout this, and he and i will be using these engines on savage tranny's, at least i am, im pretty sure he is too. and with the xtm 24.7, its said to tear savage tranny's all to hell. so do u think a super low gear is avalible for the tranny??

    what if you were to replace the gears with metal 1's it should make the tranny bulletproof

    I have owned several big block and liked most of them. hpi -25 was the exception i didnt like it. picco-p3 .26 loved it but the powerband was very steep but it is insane. 24.7xtm pro liked it and is smoother than the picco but is a tiny bit slower but barely noticable, much better racing engine than the picco. mach .26 loved it, it is the same engine as the xtm but a .26 bore, much more bottom end and a wheelie machine. My newest engine is the Fantom .27 and I have yet to run enough fuel through it to give a judgment but it looks like it will be great. My next engine will be either the rb .28 or the orion wasp .28 but im waiting on feedback first.
    hope this helps
