I have the S5 which is now the Hobby 9. It is good for truggy if you run the 2045/198 pipe/header setup. Should have no problems breaking in or tuning. Good engine for the money.

ok cool yea im not the best tuner, but i can get a engine running at where i want it though. is the 2045/198 pipe header setup a rb pipe? hows the dynomite 86 pipe run on this engine?


what about the rb 3001 pipe thats, included with the hobby 9 sport? im kind of tight with the money for now
what that work good enough for the truggy?
