Default what motor to get?

well i have a warhead and the motor is no good on it so i need a new motor but i dont know which one to get. i defenetly want something a bit bigger but i dont want to spend over 150 bucks for one.ok i am looking at alot of motors right now and here are some of them




ofna force .32 which is a 5.2cc (over 3) http://www.advantagehobby.com/produc...cat=390&page=2

hyper mach .28 which is a 4.6cc (2.8hp) http://www.advantagehobby.com/produc...cat=390&page=2

axial .28 which is a 4.6cc http://www.advantagehobby.com/produc...cat=390&page=2

dynamite mach .28 which is a 4.57cc (3hp) http://www.advantagehobby.com/produc...cat=390&page=3


i was thinking of using a pull start instead of a bump start. do i have to change anything on the truck in order for it to work? also will the stock exhaust work with any of these motors?

Ok first off Factory H.P. numbers are B.S. Secondly the bottom two engines are made by the same company but I like the Dynamite better personally. The Hyper engine can be hard to tune and finicky. The .32 is an ok engine but I would go with the Dynamite. Actually I would go with a Go Tech .28 but since that's not one you mentioned I won't give you my speal.

Diito with what hansarvin said, The mach for your truck would really move it. But give the Go a look. The .21-3port is very affordable for what you get.

I've got an STS .28 that'll be more impressive per dollar than any of those 4 engines. $100 bucks takes the pullstart or non pullstart engine i have left.

Thats an awesome price, but 3 ports dont have the top that the 427 does

throw all the $$$numbers you want out there... I say spend the money and get the ninja.21/.28 or the Vspec VZB or SPEED. those engines will definitely put a smile on your face!

Get the Mach 427. Very strong and cheap. 7 port motor that is used in the LST-2.

out of the engines you mentioned i would go with the Axial .28, but if your open to input i would try a GoTech .28 sport you would be very happy with this engine lots of low and top end speed, easy to start and holds a good tune..
