    Question TRX 2.5 Marine: Why does it exist?

    So, I recently found the #5208 TRX 2.5 marine, and I was wondering, why does it exist? Does anyone know if it bolts in to the Nitro Vee? It never came stock in any vehicles... I am a little confused at the whereabouts of this engine....
    Thanks,

    I looked into that Traxxas marine engine for installing into one of my Nitro Vee's. It should mount in the same place and with the multi-shaft accept the stock clutch. The exhaust and throttle would need to be custom fabricated though.

    IMO I think they made it for an upgrade to the Pro.15 marine same as when the 2.5 came out as an upgrade for the Pro.15 in the cars. I remember reading a thread where they didn't deny it could be for the Vee, but never offered the support as a Nitro Vee upgrade.

    Interesting, you would think they would put some sort of upgrade kit out for the V... That would be an interesting build, though.

    I would be happy if they would make a nitro engine boat again. Maybe the Spartan or M41 hull with a marine engine.
