I have a buddy that has ran both those motors.

Based on his running the 427 is the way to go.
He has 12-15 gallons on the 427 and it still running, the carb is just wore out.

go with the 427 w/ .21 carb. opens up the engine a lil. but if u want a motor at a decent price with sick power go lrp .28.

I know NOTHING WHATSOEVER about the Axial... I do know, however, that the Losi is a great engine.

My Dynamite was 14 gallons old before I replaced the piston/sleeve. But after trying to keep running it I realized the carb was shot. I'm sure if I got a new carb it would keep going. Super power and super reliable, but that's only for me. I just couldn't use it in buggy cause if the size. Now that I run truggy too I should get another one for a club race engine.

427 gets my vote.not the best fuel economy,but an excellent lower priced engine.yes the sportwerks or other dynamite/mach carbs with adjustable venturis will give you better performance because you can run a 9mm insert,or a smaller one if u want to.they are about 30 bucks on ebay.not necessary,but an option.
