I have a .28 dynamite platium in my LST and it kicks AZZ. I drinks alot of gas though because its not tuned yet. I only get about 7 mins out of a tank.

Of these engines, I would vote for the Axial. As mentioned earlier, the Dynamite engines are very good and are not very expensive. You should consider one of them also.

I am a fan of O.S engines, but the .30 VG has not been very impressive. I don't own one myself but of those I know who did buy them have not been happy with them. Sure they all said that they tune just as good as any O.S. but the preformance is really lacking and they're fuel hogs. It's still a good engine but, for the price, a Dynamite 427 has much better all around preformance with easy tuning and great durability. Just my oppinion.
