Default Which engine

I have 2 engines a Axial .28 Spec 1s Racing Engine and Nitro Star K4.6 .28. Which engine would be best for just all around bashing on an old ultra lx comp.

I cant believe over 30 people read this post and no one has any input on what engine would be more dependable for just holding a tune and bashing.

they are both nearly 100% identical motors, mad ein the same identical factory...both mills have identical port timing etc......... so run whichever you wish...IMHO i would drop those 2 and buy a better quality higher output engine to rely on

Well this is just a hobby not my life. I am not going to drop 300 in a new engine just to turn around and break it doing flips over my house. So if I can get an engine for around 150 or less and run 3 gal. through it then Im happy. I didnt ask anyone to dog these engines or to tell me to get a better one. I just wanted to know of the two which one would probly last longer. Just simple and to the point.

with those two i would go with the axial .28 its a very good engine for the money, and i know a few guys that race them in there buggys and truggys and do very well with them, and for bashing its one of if not the most used engine there is...
