    i bought a smartech 10th scale 4x4 buggy,yes i said smartech, anyways i like it more than the t maxx that i had before, but was wanting to upgrade the engine. it has a .15 in it now with side exhaust, and a roto carb, and i wand to know is there any way to put like a .26 in it ? or what is the biggest engine i can put in it with the greatest ease? just want to make something that no one else has. plus just think how embarrasing it would be to get beat by a smartech > hahaha

    different engine mounts and new holes drilled into the chassis for the motor mounts and also that drive train is only saposta hold up to like a .15 or so I don't think it will hold up to a .21 unless you did moddin with the the tranny and stuff.
