I love RBs but that Toro Nero looks like the real deal.

Toro Nero for sure. They are all good mills, but for longevity, power, and price... they cant be beat.

The US Spec is more $$ but it will keep up better with the other mills you mentioned. The Toro Nero is an awesome more, but touchy, you must run the right pipe and plugs from what I have seen with my friends Truggy, runs VERY strong.

I am dissappointed to be hearing all the Mileage issues with the Alpha's. I run the US Spec and it is better than average on fuel.

no i talked to a losi driver that running the orion .21 engine and he was only getting 7:30 run time you could get a plus 4 and that will be all the power you need and get 10-13 minutes of runtime per tank the torro nerro engine has way to much power for alot of people.

you cant go wrong with both mills. but the plus 4 will get the job done and save you some money in the process.

Ofna 053 pipe and header is the best combo for the money in a truggy, I couldn't imagine how fast it would be in buggy.

i have only ran a toro so i can say anything about the other motors. but the toro is amazing. its got a ton of power and was so easy to brake in.

i run a 9853 pipe and its got good top and bottom power.

only have a gallon of fuel in it so far and is running good. still kinda braking in. during my first race with it it decided to richen up and i had a pretty crapy bottom end but was still able to win the race.
