I plan on using it as a backup but the right track might be good to use it. Thanks.

Ive been running mine with a 9901 pipe/short header and it does very well. It is no way comparable to a GRP. This engine will get your truck moving just not as well as a GRP. It will also fall a little short if you are running on a track with a long straight. I say you might be able to stretch it 120ft - 140ft max. Outside dont be afraid to get it up to 250ish. Modded you should be able to get 9-10 minutes a tank. Very good engine especially for buggy. Might be a little bit of a stretch for truggy but can still work with the right clutch/gearing combo.

I'll give you $50.00 for it.


It's a decent engine stock. Usual NovaRossi quality and longevity. I don't have any experience with a modded one. The stocker's a little lacking in output. I'd try it with an 053 pipe in a truggy. It'd be a fine backup, buggy, or small track truggy engine. Heck, even the lower output quality racing .21's (lower output only in comparison to the beasts of the class) have plenty of power these days. It's just not shockingly powerful. I'll probably pick one up to run in a buggy as they're powerful enough, and a good deal for the quality. It'd give great fuel mileage in a buggy. Power output is comparible to a three port Picco. A GRP .21 has lots more top end...

Makes me even more cheesed that I couldn't make the Golden State at CVR this year. I realy wanted to get in on that raffle.....
