These Mach motors are one of my favorite budget motors. And If you get then slightly modded, it makes this motor more linear / drivable.

Heres a link for ya !!!

if you have the eight, you will need to get stock engine mounts for the pro kit. i wouldn't be suprised if there arent guys in here that have them lying around after going to the one peice engine mount. i don't run losi anymore or i would have had some for ya!

in the truggy they call it the race roller. i'm guessing you have the rtr. does it have the silver chassis or the grey annodized chassis?

the big and square is the one that everybody wants, thats a one peice. here is what it should look like. i prefer the one peice as most if not all racers run.
