I have 2 tmaxx trucks, what's the biggest motor I can go with without doing a chassis change? One truck has 2.5 and other is a 15, I'm new to this so I appreciate any help...

Measure the motor mounts and work up from there. Or convert it to electric, since those motors are generally more compact.

Re: What's the biggest motor?

2.5cc is .15ci, both those engines are the same size.

I don't know if you'll need different mounts, but newer ones run a 3.3cc engine so you should be able to adapt yours to run a 3.3cc.
