This link will give you the basic idea
Ya, Ya I know, I see the carnage, but it's still race-able. Isn't it?

That's an awesome conversion kit
the only issue I see is the tranny. I have severed quite a few pins in my tranny already from racing on the track with a 2.5. when i adjusted the slipper clutch it just ripped out the pegs. is there a tranny that the t-maxx will house? or is the revo spec capeable of handeling that?

I have a BB T-Maxx with an OS 30 in it.

Yeah, I had some problems with the tranny, but after putting all RRP steel gears in it and the diffs, the whole thing seams fine now.
