|Sirio is introducing a new high-performance engine that boasts massive .23 cubic inch displacement. The included photos suggest a 7+2 port configuration with a three-port exhaust. A turbo two-piece cylinder head and a very large diameter turbo crankshaft are also included. A skirted piston and a machined double-bushing conrod round out this big bore package. Supposedly a new engine mount is required to install the engine, which has small-block engine mount spacing between the bolt holes, but is wider than a standard small-block thanks to the much larger crankshaft bearings. A standard exhaust port is also used, which should enable the use of this engine for many other applications beside the T-Maxx. Many standard 90 and 180 degree exhaust headers already exist that will fit this engine. It should also become very popular among those who like to stuff larger engines in their car or truck. Now it will be much easier because the crankcase of this new engine is much more compact than a standard big-block. Engine will include mounting hardware.|

|Here’s the buzz, straight from Pro-Line:
We’ve all experienced unwanted sidewall flex at one time or another. Sidewall flex is the downfall to most Monster Truck tires, until now. Pro-Line introduces their latest off-road concoction for Monster Trucksthe 40 Series Bow-Tie. Monster Trucks are equipped with miles and miles of suspension travel. The need for additional travel from sidewall flex of a tire only hinders the trucks performance. Well, needless to say, the 40 Series Bow-Tie nearly eliminates all sidewall flex ensuring the quickest, most consistent lap times.

|The name is the same, but the new T-Maxx is a very different truck from the one that youve seen everywhere since 1999. The big story is the T-Maxxs wider stance (its a full inch wider, thanks to new, longer arms) and its rear-exhaust, round-port TRX 2.5 engine and re-engineered EZ-Start system. According to Traxxas, the new engine pumps out 60 percent more power than the TRX Pro.IPS Crankshaft
IPS stands for ‘Integrated Pilot Shaft,’ which eliminates the need for a separate clutch pilot shaft; instead, the TRX 2.5s crank and pilot shaft are machined as one piece. This increases precision for a wobble-free clutch, and there’s no threaded-on pilot shaft to come loose.
Lightweight, offset-wristpin piston and knife-edged connecting rod with 1:1 bore to stroke ratio.
Slide carburetor with molded body.
ALL-NEW EZ-START 2
> Molded head cap to prevent rollovers from scarring the TRX 2.5s heatsink head.
