The Dynamite .28 is one of the best kept secrets out there. The motor has gobs of power especially on the bottom end and is like 149.99. Ran one in my crt with a jp2 a and odonnell 77 plugs and it was a screamer.

Derek, hate to break it to you but just pick one. You posted on other forums and here and have gotten lots of responses and advice. The joy of RC is trial and error, finding out what works for you and what does not. Generally speaking, nitro motors have a short life if you run a lot. Try one out and see how it works then you can make future decisions based on that. Take a look at this, pretty cheap and it's a nova. Probably not the fastest but good runtime and smooth power. I want one for a practice motor.

Well any .21 will move your truggy, some faster then others. It all depends on what you plan on doing and your driving style. You may as well just pick up an .28 and be done with it. I had the axial 1s and its slow but has good torque. I also had the SW .26 and it was a great motor only lasted 3-4 gallons though. Currently I have the Go 5 port and the Jx ninja .21. The Go tech has a mind of it's own sometimes. The Ninja is a beast, I have never had a problem with it but it also costs $300. Why don't you get the dynamite .28 it looks pretty good for amains price with extra 10% off

Derek, I would suggest the go 5 port for your budget. It works well in a truck.

http://www.carolinasrc.com/Webstore/...idproduct=3886

I think these guys have the 10% discount. I just use them for refrence since it;s who I use.

This is the go 5 port in a truggy when I first tested the OCM truck here in the states. You'll be happy

As you can see it pulls good and puts the power down good. It "should" last longer than the sportwerks engines although a lot of that is relative to how well you care for the engine.

I don't think you will be disapointed with the Dynamite P engine either the 21 or 28.. as I said earlier the one in my truggy has 2 seasons on it and still runs great. I plan on racing over in Minn. at the RHR series useing the same engine.. as I said earlier also, I'm not being partial to one brand of engine, we have RB c6s, GRP.21 axial 12, mach 26s, and also a sportwerks .21 in our mayhem thats 4 years old and still runs great..

I would look seriously look hard at the Jammin jpx 21. I have seen videos on you tube of them in truggies and they are very fast. They normally sell for 229 on Amain but with the 10% off that will be about 206. I heard of people getting 12+ gallons on the picco based engines. This is probably going to be my next engine.
I run the N21B now in my buggy and it's a good engine and it will run forever without flameouts but it's not the most powerful engine out there. I know the go 5 port suggested by Alan Burton is a strong engine as well but I don't know as much about the Go's unfortunatly.
