Default Which Motor on 8B Race Roller - 0S 28XZ or OS Speed Mag?

Hey all..

I recently purchased both motors and only have time to break one in before the weekend.

Would the 28XZ be too much for the Buggy? I planned on running it on my truggy, but have since decided to buy a New Race Roller 8T and am waiting on funds to do so.

So I'm going to go ahead and get my Brand New 8B up and running and need to choose which motor to run.

Run Times are not an issue at this point.. I do like alot of power though. (who doesn't!! LOL)

The track I run is pretty small and technical.. so I'm kinda leaning toward the 28 for it's low end grunt.

Let me know what you guys think!

Thanx!

-David

I would never ever put that .28 in a buggy that would be going anywhere near a track. And dont get the magnesium head speed get the aluminum head version.

So you are thinking it's probably too much for the buggy huh?

That's why I asked... I figured it would be too much.

I would argue that the .28 is too much for the truggy, so yes it is way too much for the buggy.

+2 on getting the Al head speed.

I agree that the .28 is too much for truggy also. I run against a few of them, now if you run at a wide open tack and put a red brick under your radio tray you should be okay LOL. I run A .21 in my truggy and my ruggy is not 1 of the lighter ones.

how fast is it and can i put it in my gas truck?lol the 28 is too much for the truggy and you can save yourself some coin by going with the new ninja(os) jx motor and save 200 bucks that you can use to buy driveline parts for that truggy with the beasty in her. oh and there is no tripple too tough with the 28,this motor will put a smile on your mug.
