300 on a motor to race? Hands down the GRP .21. No other motor can match what it can deliver, including the 400-500 motors. No question it's the best motor on the market right now at any price.

I've got right at 5 gallons on mine now and it is a beast. Still going stong. I've never had a flame out or hicup at any time with it. I tunes easy and holds a tune very good. Not to mention it can break the rear end loose on any vehicle, run with or out run anything on the strait, get 9 mins run time, and still be 205 degrees.

It's the perfect nitro engine.

Stock V-Spec will be plenty for a truggy.The .28 is a great motor but from the few i know who had them in their truggies they took them out stating the motor was too much to handle.If you think you can handle the .28 go for it. If I were you I would get the V-Spec.Also go down to your local track and ask around to see what everyone runs in their truggies.

the pipe they include in the promo kit Does NOT help the motor at all....i would reccomend against the promo kit for that exact reason.

Integra - what pipe would you suggest for the GRP? I have the .28. I heard the jp-4 works fairly well. I have a virtually brand new 053 pipe and an 0801 pipe laying around and so would love to use one of them if they will perform better than the promo pipe.

If you can find one try to get a O.S. T-2050.It's a great pipe for the V-Spec in a truggy as it has massive low end power.
