IMO the picco/jammin quality FAR outweight's Anything the LRP can offer....picco/jammin's just do it all that much better.

I had the LRP .28 SpecIII, and really liked it. It had great power. The only problem was that it had the bearing go out quite early. I actually still have it on the shelf. I just need to put a bearing in it, and get another truggy to put it in.

I dont know if this is a common thing, or just a rare thing, but for the price I paid (165.00) I thought it was an awsome engine.

The Jammin engines are great too, but cost a bit more. I had this same decision to make when i was shopping also.

Good luck.

IMO, for bashing the LRP is the better choice. For racing, the Jammin' would be the better choice as it has better fuel economy/the bearings last longer.

Why is the LRP better for bashing ?

What if you throw ceramics in the LRP right from the get-go? How would they compare then in performance, fuel mileage and longevity?
