Questions?? crt.5 engine choice

Hello, i,am to look for an engine for my new crt.5 pro kit. I only want to do bashing with it. I will put 2.2 stadium truck wheel and tire to give me extra tires choice and better grip.
I am hesitate between the OS .18TZ and the RB Concept V-15 turbo.

But i am a little concern about the 75ml fuel tank and i am scared that this both engine will pass trough the tank too much quickly.
But i do not want a .12 engine, i want something with lot of torque.

What do you think and if someone here have one of these 2 engine in his crt.5, please give me your impressions and your run time.

Thank you!!

David

between those two i would lean to the os mill, but i feel either would be too much for the .5

I would suggest a traxxas 2.5r engine for its power and price.

The RB V-15 is cheaper than the OS and TRX 3.3, i can have a brand new in box V-15 for $99.99US.
But it,s a standard crank, so i will have to run an Ofna pilot shaft clutch nut.

An for the Picco .12, i had said in my first post that i will only bash with it, so i want a motor with more torque than a .12
