Default which truggy motor????????

not sure what motor to go with for truggy. I know I want a .28 but everyone says the OS is too much power. What do you recommend and why?

GO TECH .25 6 port race. Just as powerful down low as a .28 with rpm's and runtime similar to the .21's. THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. No need for a .28, but if your heart is set on 1 GO tech makes a few but the .25 is a monster. Truly unbelivable power...

honestly you would be better off with a strong .21 like the ebm5 race prepped , it will have more then enough power to clear jumps but at the same time not have to much power to where you are spinning the tires out of every corner costing time

Yes I agree but he said .28. I smashed .28's in truggy last year with my PTM Go Tech .21 5 port. If you go with the EB get the race prepped model I talked to ED and he said it is more suited to truggy. The full mod is for buggy because his modding smoothes out the abrupt bottum of the 5 port.

JX .21 hands down awesome drivable bottom end power, use a JP3 or 2060 and you have a lethal combination, this set up van be ran on small indoor tracks or bid fast flowing track's, it has OS tuning and reliablilty, and 5 ports and ceramic coated crank, runtimes with the mentioned pipes are 10 min plus, the motor is just wicked fast when you want it to be, and smooth when you want it.

not really. it still depends on how the eingine tuned and is set up with what pipe. And how the individual drives his car. And most if not all Truggies have a 150cc fuel tank. ...FYI bro.

Personally I had a .21 Rossi in my truggy and I was blowing the .28's out of the water

Not only with speed in tight corners [slow is fast], and a little better fuel mileage

but if you get a .28 go with a RB5 port
but if you get a .21 get a .21 GRP promo kit <-- runs amazing

I was planning on getting the grp .28 promo kit for my 8t 1.0, but you say the grp .21 would be fine? I run on a pretty tight track with one strait and some jumps out of corners and will run on some longer outdoor tracks this summer. Currently I am running a mach 427 wich is good power(11 to 12 min run times) but just want to get something else. .21 or .28 grp? Thanks

Extech .24 or .21, either have ton's of power especially the .24 but you'll actually get decent run time out of them.
