Default I know this has been posted 10,000 times...

but its time for a new engine.

I want\need the fastest engine out there, I dont care about the price, I just want its top speed to be ridiculous.

I dont have a starter box, I want an engine that has a pullstart or roto start.

I dont race, I dont care that the tires wont hook up, I dont care that it costs 500$ for the engine, I dont care if a tank of gas lasts 45 seconds, I just wanna drive fast!!!

any suggestions?

Im going towards the 528, but maybe thers something better?

I think the only roto start mill that has what you want is the 528.

consider it bought then.

`now can anyone help me with chosing the motor mount for this engine, I have the Mugen mbx5 stock motor mount that has been chopped up, so its time for a new one.

theres nothing special about this engines sizes, I can easily put my flywheel, ofna .21 collet and 13t clutch on it with no problems?

If you're going to spend the cash on the fastest engine/pipe you can find then why not get a starter box? It would really open up your engine choices, not to mention saving you from having to rig up an engine mount for a roto start engine (mbx5 mounts will hold the engine too low, the roto plate won't clear).

I hate starter boxes, theyre stupid.

I would rather spend extra on the motur mount then use a starter box.

Delete this worthless thread.

EDIT: You don't deserve a nitro. Run electric instead. It's faster anyway.
