come on jazz. It's a spare buggy made out of spare parts. It's just for fun, if my diffs explode it's cool I will wear a face shield

I know its a little old and probably most don't even know what it is, but a RB Rody C5 (circa 2003, maybe) is the fastest engine I have seen in person....lacks bottom end (can be tuned for SOME bottom) and gets awful mileage, but when that lightswitch is turned on, it is a hell of a ride.

well funny you should ask... we drag raced one of my stage 1 JPX .21's in a X2 CRT vs my mugen with the ninja 28 the night i shot the video.....The Mugen was running heavier Badland tires, the X2 was running Bowties.... off the line the JPX got a good jump and carried it for about 250 feet, then the Ninja managed to catch up and maybe pass, we were at the limit of radio range anyways....The X2 is running a 13 th bell, I was running a 14 th bell...we also raced on asphalt..... We did the race 2 times and the results were the same every time....The Ninja does have more midrange punch, but i feel unless your running bigger tires like Badlands or Mulchers the .21 is a better engine choice.....With todays lighweight tires and a good clutch like a M2C the jammin 21 is likely going to take down pretty much every 28 you put it next to, especially so on the dirt.. As well the .21's are much easier on clutches and seem to tune and run more consistently...the .28's are always eating clutches and clutch bearings, which truly gets tiresome......

If all you are looking for is stupid unusable power to tear up some grass, go electric.

A Neu 1512 3300kv on 4s is pushing 49,000 rpms and will easily push a 1/8 buggy to 60mph in about 2 seconds without breaking a sweat. That is about 2.7hp. I ran my rc8 on 5s with that motor parking lot bashing and got to 70mph with a gps strapped on the wing at 3/4 throttle and was still pulling wheelies. About 3.2 hp.

Go with the OS .28 I have a 5.5 carb restrictor in to try tame the thing down and it still pancakes the tires and temps coming of at 220- 235. If get that .28 and put a .9 carb restrictor, you hair on you body stand up. I have seen most of the big bulks out there and the OS .28 is sick.

I almost forgot the engine with an 086 pipe and a L header is untouchable. You do not even have to mod that engine. You can also get the EBmod pipe if you can find any of them.

I'm only playin Dreaux...but dont say you haven't been warned..maintenance, parts replacement, tire replacement, and the amount of money this little project is going to cost you in repairs is going be off the charts, and you will end up being sorry you did it. It sounds like a really fun expensive experiment, but its your money bud, spend it how you like

well if your lookin for just alot of fun with no regard to parts replacement, i'd say go with an sts dm30...you may only get a gallon or 2 (if your lucky) thru one, but at @$120 a piece, you'll have fun! try locking up your center and rear diff also....it'll be a handfull!!!

the onroad engine will pull much harder on top end, but it will be softer on the low end...if all your doing is high speed blasts then the onroad engine would be the better choice for sure

Hey guys, on the topic of big blocks and power..

I got a picco p3-28, my question is this

do you think the engine will have enough power, in a buggy, with all four sand paddles (truck paddles, not buggy), to keep the buggy on top of water?

the power to weight ratio should be pretty good, I've seen some vids of monster trucks trying to do that, but they were much heavier with not too powerfull motors. I'm trying to recreate the iceland hill climber rigs but with the R/C


I figure since this is a powerfull engine discussion, my question is somewhat on topic



p.s. I have very well considered the insane power of say a 6s brushless, but the cost and risk factor make it a no-no for now..

Hey guys, I am new to RC Cars and am just getting my 8ight-T 2.0 put together. However... I have been into RC Helicopters for quite a while. So, my obvious question would then be given the topic of discussion, what about using one of my Heli engines in a car? Something like my new RedLine 53 or even my OS 90? This may just be an outrageous question but, if your not worried about the cost of blowing parts or you can make some custom ones that could possibly handle the size/power of the motor... is it possible??? Could you make one MEAN MACHINE this way????

Maximo-
Based on your judgement,which onroad nitro engine .21's do you think will peak out the most regardless of price beside the P9R?I'm just looking for some options.Thank you..
