Virtually any .21 sized engine will fit into the xb8. If your new to nitro and offroad, I would highly suggest getting a really cheap, yet reliable engine to start with such as the OS RG, OS VG, or possibly even an Ofna Hyper engine. YOu might even want to start with a cheaper, used buggy too. Running a 1/8 can get expensive, and if your new to it , might even necessitate the need for a 2nd job. I"ve seen too many new people dive into 1/8 nitro and not know how to tune or perform routine maintenance and end up destroying their $400 engines and $600 buggies.
