That all depends on what you have to spend.
I would choose a trinity drake .12, I have had excellent experiences with the trinity motors and Drake himself uses them so they must be good!
Servos is a hard one because there is so many out there but you don't need excessive torque for the steering or throttle. I have a JR539mg for throttle and Steering but I am sure other people use higher quality servos.
For me it turns quick enough and throttle response is quick enough.
But for racing you would probably want servos that are a bit more competitive.

Thumbs up

I ran these trucks for years and nothing beat the RB12 in it with stock Drake pipe and short header. We used a small 5.4mm restrictor and the run time was off the hook.

Servos were smooth is better on the throttle. Futaba 9451s all the way around.

Run the Trinity blocks in the rear.

Great truck!
Have fun!
TEX

The OS .12 CVR is a VERY good choice. Personally I prefer RB engines, and the RB V12 is great in a stadium truck.

Yep, he has won a lot of races with those motors bolted in. I recently got the '07 Fuel Buggy Nats DVD and his buggy was so strong through the whole final no flame outs or any knid of trouble!
