Did you order the 8T or the 8T 2.0?

You CAN put that engine in, but you will really want a .21 for racing. Much better milage, all the power and a much better powerband. For bashing and entry level racing the axial will be OK.

dont put a .32 in. Way to much power, it will eat your diffs up. At most put a .28 in it.

Not a problem man. Those 3 are some of the best engines in thier respective classes. The Ninja and V-spec are total racing engines, and the the nova is a great short track/entry engine. Although it can definately be a great racing engine too.
