Thumbs up .12 Engine choices? what do YOU like?

As the title states.

im looking to put replace the engine in my CRT .5 . currently running a picco .12

I dont see many choices for .12 in offroad. with SG shaft

do you think an ON-road motor would fit the bill?

ANY HELP or personal recommendations?

Thanks

Take a look at this one OFN51127 Picco .12 Off-Road JLR Red Dot at http://www.nitrohouse.com/catalog/in...p?cPath=33_113 is a good option

What's your budget and needs?

There are few .12 engines with slide carb that will fit the CRT .5

The OFN51127 Picco .12 Off-Road JLR Red Dot is a excellent engine at a great price. Not sure about the best tuned pipe for this engine.

That is the engine i currently have installed with the stock pipe. Runs OK not really fast, but gets the job done.

lookin to upgrade from the one listed in the auction.

it seems the JLR redot is the only choice?

What about the EVO edition of the motor? it says onroad, but how would this be in the dirt?

what else you guys think? im gonna need a pipe to go with the new engine too.

keep the ideas rolling! thanks guys!
