    #1 upgrade

    regardless of money what is the #1 upgrade to a 2.5 revo that should be done thats not a FOC or wing or suspension?
    like an engine or new wheels and tires etc

    The cheapest upgrade is a Majeskid, it keeps from wearing out the rear skid & losing hinge pins during a long race.

    i think a bigger engine and a performance pipe are the two acceceries that make the biggest differance, but that's my oppenion.

    definately tires and wheels if you race.....leave the pipe--most of the racers keep the stock pipe on...engine is solid as well
    Revo comin through....

    My top 3 mods are:

    1. Tires/Wheels
    2. Servos/Electronics
    3. GTR Hard Anno Shocks/Red Pushrods


    The most noticable mod i made was definatly my Hi-Tech Servos/Single steering servo. They made my truck soooo much more responsive. I was amazed at how quick the steering was.
