Default Buying engine, which one or suggestions

I need a motor that i'm going to run until summer. I was looking at Axial .28 spec 1s or the Go-Tech .28 3 port sport engine. I need something with a good amount of tourqe for truggy. Which one? or do you have any suggestions. I'm really only looking to spend $150. Once summer is here i'll be running a modded O.S. .28xz truggy motor. If you can help thanks.

If you take a look at what the Pros's are racing in the truggy arena you wil find that they race .21.

The amount of power will not make you faster your driving skills will

I would love to get a .21, it's for a hyper st which is heavier than most truggies (atleast that's what i'v been reading). If a good .21 wouldn't have a problem with sending that baby over the jumps that's what i'll go with but for right now i'm just looking for a ok motor with some tourqe. I'm am new to the truggy racing but not nitro so i'm trying to get some good ideas.

my dad runs a Hyper ST with a OS 21 V-Spec and my uncle a ST PRO with a RB 21 The Seven and those things move! just get a high end 21 and you should be fine.
