Do you care about being class legal? If so... .21 is the limit.

I suggest the VSPEC. Great motor.

If your lookin at racing go with any of the .21 novarossi engines
I'm currently running a 21-5k and love it. I have the wrong pipe on mine but I tuned and ran my friends car with a dynamite 086 pipe set and I was pulling people down the straight and running 206*F
A .28 is too much power for a buggy and would cause unnecessary wear on your drive train.

Bump start all the way, there is no option. What brands are readily availible to you?
