The bf engine is great. I have 2 of them but never tried one in a truggy. I race Losi 8s and run purple headed rossi 21 motors in my truggy. The bf is great in a buggy and I have used it as a backup many times but only in my buggy. If you want the best bang for your buck buy one, You cant go wrong. If you need more motor spend 300+ for a tuned motor and keep that little gem in the bag as a backup like I do.

Thats good to know. I run 1/10 electric stuff. Got into nitro for a month or so (RC8) But it always seemed like there was SO much to learn. My biggest roadblock was learning how to tune it. It just seems like such a difficult concept to grasp. Everyone that tried to explain it to me, assumed I knew what I was doing and explained it on a 30,000 ft. level rather than in idiot's terms...lol

I have the 21 BF Limited I run in my Jammin X1 buggy and it hauls, I tried it in my X1 Truggy and it hauls there as well, had plenty of power for the Nitro Pit track.

The only problem I had was my throttle servo was going out so I was losing throttle during the race, only made it half way through the A main.
