You can't beat a Dynamite Mach .28 for the price! ($120. at A-main) Believe me, my son has had in his truggy a Nova p5x, Nova 421b,(nice motor but it was wore out) He keeps going back to the Mach .28! The thing just runs awesome and has awesome power, and we pit at 7.5 minutes with plenty of fuel left. And he's been winning against sponsored drivers. The only thing we've done is to make a special 7mm restrictor.


You won't be dissapointed.

7.mm restrictor/insert is a sleve that limits the amount of air in the carb inlet. Most motors have variable insert sizes to fine tune the motor. Choose an insert and slip it into the mouth of the carb and retune. They work pretty well. I use a 10mm insert.

The Mach is a good motor also! Very easy to tune are very strong and cheap.

LRP .28 are very good and hold tune well, mate has one in a 1/8th buggy and it goes like stink.

Also Go Tech have bought out a .28 and although they are new i have had a few Go Techs and they are a great motor for value and performance.

Either will be a good choice IMO or get a RB Concept TM928 if that fits the budget.

I have the LRP .28 Spec3 in my ST-R Truggy with a JP-2 pipe and I'm exceedingly pleased with its performance. It has good top end, lots of low end grunt and is a miser with fuel getting over 10 minutes (about 11) on a 150cc tank with no extra filter or fuel line and using the 9mm venturi.

I am always complemented about my truggy's performance and you should see the faces when they see which engine is in there, then they ask if it was modded. It is box stock and broken in using the heat cycle method.

I cant believe no one has reccomended the Axial .28

Everything ive seen and heard about these engines has been great, and I also own one that I plan to put into a truggy next year.

Reliable, awesome power and cheap cheap.

ABC construction, composite carb and POWER for $150? Can't go wrong.

Im still waiting for a .21, I hope they make one some time here.
