Default what to expect Axial 28RR bump start

ok so i picked up both 8ight buggy and 8ight truggy
i had a spare v-spec which i installed on the truggy and it rips
the buggy is more or less for fun i wont race her much but i was thinking about buying the axial 28rr and converting it to bump start anyone have any experience with this engine what should i expect out of it it will be coupled with a JP-2 pipe
i can post pictures once i get home of the truggy and the buggy thanks all

It should be pretty good in the buggy. The engine is Tight though so youll need to do a few things for break in Heat the head up and wrap it in foil to keep temps up above 200 for break in.

for a fun motor the picco/jammin .28 is a better choice, I had an RR broke it in but I ended up selling it and running a go tech 7 port because I wanted a more complete engine.
I must say though I dont like the way piccos drive, it seems with the half throttle is no diffrent than full throttle makes it very hard to drive if your not a blipper

Perhaps if he could spell and use proper punctuation, then Integra might have understood him better
