Default Looking to purchase budget truggy motor

I have just bought 2 Ofna Hyper ST's and I need to purchase a motor for one of them. I don't have a ton of cash to drop on a top of the line motor, just looking for something to club race with that will be decent. My son and I are going to start racing this summer and I just need something that will be easy to tune and smooth on the throttle. I haven't raced in a few years, but I am ok.

I have found this motor:

Also, for truggy racing, should I get .21 or .28 like this one?

Thanks,
Jon

IMO This is the best bang for the money. Easy to tune and is pretty quick to boot...

Agreed, except I would go with this pipe:
