I am resurrecting my tmaxx 2.5r. I stripped it the other day. Here is a list of things needed; a nitro engine- I'm open to options for bolt in only, I need a good radio, need servos.Along with the other stuff I am going to update the suspension and some small parts. What do any of you guys run.

Not racing, no show truck. Just a back yard bashing. I'll get some metal parts, like skid plates, shock towers, chassis braces, but leave plastic a arms and bumper mounts and stuff. Been thinking of removing reverse but think ill keep for the backyard stuff.

Ohh, and my budget is pretty open. If its expensive it will just be a little longer before I get it.

I am thinking about lower gearing and bigger tires. I am pretty much a beginner but want to become an avid hobbyists if you will. I have thought about making it an emaxx since I need most parts anyway.

yeah electric is cleaner and dont have to change needle settings as much and with the new lipo batteries it would make insane power if done right
