I wouldnt put a .28 inthe RC8T as it is geared for a .21 and it is light enough for it also. They both are good choices just depends on what you want to spend.

From what I've learned recently I would get an OS V-Spec or a Go-Tech 3 port.

If you are taking suggestions, I would get the EBM5 GO 5 port. That thing will be aswesome in your truggy. Get the GO 801 pipe and you are golden.

Out of the ones you listed I would go with the c6. Check out the new USA limited edition c6. Also look at the novarossi plus 21-5k. The nova is very close to the c6 power wise and you can get them brand new for $270 from amain and I just recently saw one on ebay brand new buy it now for $260. For some reason they are on sale now. I think it is because of the new plus 4 but that motor is not supposed to be as powerful as the 5k. It would probably be worth it to spend a little more now so that you don't need to buy another motor down the road. I would get the nova if I was you. Great deal on it right now as that motor normally sells for $335. Plus its a nova so if you treat her right (replace bearings with ceramics and put a new rod in after a few gallons) she will last well over 10 gallons. Just my 2 cents
Oh yeah I run mine with either a JP-1 or a Jp-3. Both pipes run great on it. JP-1 gives more bottom but the 3 is probably a better pipe for it generally.

little off topic, but quick question. you said the rc8t is light enough and geared for a .21. How about a losi 8ight-t?? i have a .28 in it now and it sucks gas and its gettin a new mill soon. i know what i will get if its a .21 but will it be a good size for it

JPX.21 would be my choice....28's suck too much fuel unless they are modded for economy and take some of that Brutal power band and make it usable.

if you get a good .21 with decent bottom end power you will have better lap times then running a .28 plus you will get better fuel mileage with the .21, the c6bbt is a good choice, also the v-spec, ninja jx, speed, sirio cl7bsti are good choices also, havent tried the jammin jpx but have heard they have good bottom end power also

DEFINATELY go with a .21. No need for a .28 in any truggy really imo. I ran .21's in my stock x1 jammin and that thing was a tank. The losi is very light and definately does not need anything more than a good .21. A good .21 provides you with the power close to that of a .28 with a much smoother and more controllable powerband as well as much better runtime. You will see you lap times improve because .21's are much more controllable. You will also be able to get 10 minutes runtime with some motors and that is a big advantage. There is evidence to prove that .21's produce faster laps. So I would say go with a .21. any of the motors I listed in my earlier post would do the trick for sure.

The Go EBM5 comes in 2 versions one is full modd and the other is race prepped, the race prepped is a stock engine with some coated parts like crankshaft, wrist pin and throttle slide, as well as a TKO ceramic bearing. It is broken in and dyno tuned which is a nice feature it will be $270.

But If you are looking for the best truggy engine on the market I would say the Go .25 6 port. Mileage is similar to a .21 and it definately has more torque than a .21. it suits truggies perfectly because of the wide tires and is a rocket from corner to corner, they can be found for around 209.99
