One of the cheapest motors on the market is the Jammin JPX.21. You can find them in online shops around $229 but around $200 on ebay. They are not a let down in proformace they can run with the $300+ moded motors and keep a great tune.

hey bud, i think you were talkin about my post. the reason i wanted a .21 is because the only difference is that the .28 uses more fuel and you get less fuel mileage. Ive ran a .21 and a .28 in my truggy now and the only difference is i can get longer run times.

Get a vspec. you can get one for like 250 on amain w/ a discount. I just put it in my trugggy and its great

the new Sirio .24 and pipe combo is a sweet rig. plenty of grunt over a .21 but not as thirsty as the .28's

Yes it should be legal to run the V-Spec in any truggy class. The rule usualy is a .28 is the biggest you can run, but alot of people run .21 (the size of the V-Spec) in there truggies.

dude, trust me...

The vspec is GREAT in a truggy. I ran it at my track yesterday, still runnin rich due to only havin about 1/2 a gallon thru it right now and i wasnt havin a problem keepin with anyone. The vspec has GREAT bottom end and Great top end. For 300(maybe lower if you find a discount) you cant beat it. in my truggy i pitted at 7 min and my pit guy told me i had at least 1/2 a tank left and this is runnin rich settings so im not gettin my greatest mileage. so with that being said i should be able to do a 15 race with ONE tank in the truggy after i lean it out. This is on a tight track so if ur runnin an open track where u use full throttle more then 10-12 would be easy to do. you WONT be disappointed.

Runnin a .28 is worthless in truggy, high end .21s will handle truggys just fine, ive ran .28s n my truggy and now the .21. I would pick the .21 ANY DAY over the .28. And like i said u get a good 3-5 min MORE run time with a .21 in a truggy


runnin .21 are perfectly legal in races. .21 is the BIGGEST you can run in a buggy and a .28 is the BIGGEST you can do in a truggy. You Can go lower, So runnin a vspec is a no brainer

Just my other 2 cents lol
