Default good engine choices for truggy

if your looking for a motor for your truggy where money is no object then the new os speed or the rb c6tt are good choices. these motors are very pricey though

if you want a good motor with plenty of power but dont want to drop close to 500 bills on one then check out the picco .21 evo 2 . this is a great motor that is easy to tune and get awesome fuel mileage on the track. its half the cost of an rb or an os speed .

if your really on a budget then check out the go tech .21 5 port . this motor has plenty of power also and its less than 200 bucks. and the bonus is you can buy a new piston, sleeve and con rod for about 100 bucks.

I am running trinity full moded 24 engine, and I must say its perfect for truggy, great powerband, lots of power, great runtime. In the past I had 528-hot mod, grp-28 tuned, V spec-21, axe rossi cobra 21-evolution X1, ninja-28, GO-28, LRP spec3-28 and 24 Trinity is the best compromise betwen power an fuel economy(9-11min.,depends on track)
I must say I am impressed with Trinity mill, you can get it at amains from 224-300, depends if moded,race preped or stock-which is the same as race prepped, just not broken in.
And you get Sirio quality for only 224$-you cant go wrong with that.
Hope that helps

i dont go by what people tell me. I would of never ran the go but i go two go motors in a trade, so i tried them. Im my buggy i was amazed on how well it preformed. Im hopin it does just as good in the truggy.I like these motors, I like the os motor to, just that front bearing has pissed me off to many times

The Best motor on the market and you don't need the fully moded but its you choice. The differance between the fully moded and the Race preped is RPM range is more on the fully moded. I have both I use the fully moded on tracks with long straights.

i think it is very hard to say the Best...because so many engines are good in truggy. i am running a standard GRP right now, well breaking it in and i have forgotten how good this engine actually is. there are alot of choices, i like RB the most but here lately i have been on a trying everything kick LOL.
