My Nova N528XRR is a chassis twister

I ran it in my TTR ST-1 Truggy and could not Handel the power so went back to Nova 367

Nova .28 is sitting in my 1/8th rail waiting to hit the drag strip

The OS28 XZ is pretty awesome. I get 10.5 min out of a tank on my MBX5T. Bucketloads of smooth power.

I run both the JPX .28 and the Picco .28. IMO the Picco is just a beast.

If massive torque is what you seek then a Novarossi 528XR or the OS .28 XZ will fit the bill. Either one of these motors have incredible power. I wolud go with a V Spec if it were me, great torque, horsepower, and excellent runtime.

I myself I have an RB TM928. I was new to the hobby and wanted power! I don't know how fast it really is due to the setup I have on it. Took power away from it and it still screams. I really like it, but again don't have anything to compare it to. This is the only motor I have ran! Have only gone through two plugs in almost a gallon....if you care.

My two cents!

The best for what? Short track, long track, technical track or bashing, high cost or low cost.

If you want opinions then you'll receive all you can handle starting a thread like this. That is what happens with an overgeneralized request.

Most people will tell you the best is the one they have and installed in their truggy of in their friend's truggy. Usually you'll get anecdotal opinions.

Here's my opinion, LRP .28 spec 3. Cheap, powerful, economical, easy to tune and hardly anyone uses it so if you're a good driver you can tell them it's all in the engine and then watch them scratch their heads wondering why a sub $200 engine has lower lap times than their $300+ engine.

I run the RB 928. Enough said...
To be honest with you, any good .28 is overpowering in a truggy. I bought a .21 just make my truggy drivable.

Novarossi 528XR or Picco .28 Team Turbo are the big daddies, the OS .28 seems to be a contender as well.

well said, there are several great .28 beast's to be had these days. For me the choice was the OS .28XZ, JP3 combo for it's ease of tuning and "doh!" power

The RB 928 or the Jammin JPX .28 are both amazing chassis-twisting engines.
