When you say lx comp motor I am assuming that you mean a force .26, the force 26 is a great engine, someone at my track has over 15 gallons thru his with nothing done to it.

watch your front and rear differentials, they wear out super fast on the hellfire , that's why I sold mine, I was frustrated with the differentials.
