I second that vote. If you need to go less expensive the Novarossi N21R-BF $139.00 and the Dynamite 086 pipe $45.99 at Amain.

yes thats the werks motor. the novarossi is here: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Standard-Plug

.28's are fuel hogs, and the power is usually unuseable. .21 youll have plenty of power and good fuel economy to boot

The B5 yes and a .21 is all you need especially with the B5 it's a monster in truggy with a 2013

Yup, that's it! I have no exp. running a B5 in a trug but, in my bugg, its plenty. Many people have had good results in a trugg with it, I would go 2013 on thepipe though.

That price range seems a little more affordable for me since this is my first 1/8 nitro. Should I get extra clutch springs as well or should they last me a while?

Yep that's it. Stick with a .21 for the reasons listed above(.28's are crappy overpowered fuel hogs). With the current engine battle being for run time, you really want to stick with a .21.

The B5 is a lot more motor for not a lot more money. The nova is decent, but in stock form, it can be a bit underpowered for a truggy. They are also a bear to break in, so that might not be the best thing for a nitro beginner.

If you can't afford the 2013 pipe, you could settle for a dynamite 053.

Another great pipe is the 2035, true on the breaking in. the B5 is super easy

forget the werks (sorry werks fans ) and get an Alpha (green head) and the Alpha 0801 pipe. less than 300 and is the perfect match for that truggy, thats what im running in my D8T now but the nova is ok but lacking up top. the Alpha is amazing!!

what about rb engines are they a bear to break in ? i did have a nova .21 bf it wasnt real hard to break, in but sometimes it was a pain.

i just got the hobby 9 5 port for the truggy.
