Default 8ight

My mach 427 engine seems to be worn out. I am looking for a good engine to learn the basics of racing. I go out to our local track and play trying to get control and jumping down ( so I dont take out someones car, I hear they get upset about that) So basically I was wondering if I should go back with the Mach 427 or try something different. I dont want to get more than I can handle just want to be able to make the jumps. thanks for any advice you can give

you should get a jammin .21 they are inexpensive easy tuning and they are fast motor learn how to drive good motor in your car this is good inexpensive way to start also could go with either novarossi 2000 bf limited but the jammin is better imo

Definately go with something else! The 427 is really NOT a buggy engine by any means. It really isn't legal for buggy racing.

As for what to go with, that kinda depends on your budget. If you are looking for a budget engine, go with the novarossi n21b limited edition. If you can spend around $300, look towards an OS v-spec, mugen JX ninja or novarossi plus 4.

ALL .21 engines use the same mounts. You need to buy the kit or quick change mounts and get a starter box for the engines to start. For the price of the Dynamite, I would go for the Novarossi N21BF.
