    if the engine is the only thing that you did to it, I don't think that quallifies as a trevo

    it just makes it a powerful mother.

    The JP-1 Works well on my Picco .27. I think you will really like the sound of it as well!

    I don't understand why some people put in a Big Block then use a Pipe for a small Block.

    I didn't realize how much bigger the JP-1 Pipe is over the stock Revo pipe. The thing is huge!

    Will the pipe hanging the way that it is the exhaust pretty much clears the rear tire and so far has not been a huge problem.

    You could also rotate the stinger so that it poits down but this would then cause the pressure fitting to be on the very outside.

    Take the good with the bad!

    Nice looking revo man!

    I'm curious, in those picks it looks like either a Temp/speedo guage or a failsafe that's mounted ON TOP of the rollbar?!?!

    Why would ya mount it on top of something that is the first to be impacted in a crash/roll over? =)

    Hopefully it's just there for the pic's and you normally have it in a different spot, if ya dont, I highly suggest moving it unless ya want it broken! =)

    Cheers!

    I put in on while I was breaking in the engine. I wanted it to be in an easy to read location and since I was putting around I was not to worried about flipping over!

    I mean come on do you think I want to damage My brand new Engine?

    What engine install kit did you use? It doesn't look as angled as some others I've seen. Also, is that left rear arm aftermarket as well?

    I thought it was a design I hadn't seen yet. New era makes one that's similar, but your mount didn't have the engine all cockeyed like theirs does.
