Default RB S5 and S5 l2g

Does anyone know the main difference in these engines? I know the cooling head in different. But i really cant find anything else out. Ive been reading around the RB forum with no luck.. basically i guess im asking is the older S5 worth owning lol

I think a c6BB would be a bit more ideal for a truggy, but the s5 will do just fine Im sure, especially in rc8t which has a fairly efficient drivetrain, and its not crt heavy

Smile s5

I run an s5 and a c6 and I prefer the s5 in my truggy a little less run time but with a jp3 on it it revs great through tight sections and has just enough power to clear any jump you put in front of it. Plenty of power down the straight.

Did I mention it is half the cost of the c6 as well.

Just my two cents. Everybody has there own opinion all rbs are great engines.

All the new c6 and s-series have an improved case and backplate for better run times for fuel. S-5 is a great motor with a 2045 and C6 is an absolute beast with a 192/2045 set-up. You will not be disapointed.

The older S5 (MSC) is a great motor. I'm running one right now in a buggy and it has more than enough power. I can't see any problem with it pushing a truggy around. I run with a JP4 and it is really nice. Very smooth, can do some short run ups to doubles and triples and has a good top end.
Run times are in the 8:30 range.

Thats good. Hopefully it dont have any issues and runs good when it shows up. whats a good pipe for this? Its coming with a JP1 which might work good on the smaller track in the truck? But maybe somthing better?

I run an S5 l2g in my buggy with a JP-1 and it runs pretty good. As far as the best overall pipe for it I would say JP-3 would be a good choice. You should have no problems with it having enough power for a truggy. I have seen many run in truggies and they are fast especially on a small to medium sized track.

so running a s5 l2g wouldnt have enough power to clear a triple with short run time if i was running a jammin x2 truggy with a jp3 pipe? when i had a revo i ran the 523 and loved the engine...wanted to stay with a rb since im getting back into the sport again.....anyone try this motor in the x2 and is there any different gearing i would have to do?

my local track has a 175 foot straight away.....i was thinking of a jammin jpx .28 engine cause thats what most run there...but love the RB's

were did you gather that? all the post seem to say it will be pretty decent. im pretty sure your jammin is a touch lighter than the rc8t. so i dont know why it would be different.


so. the 2035??
