Default tough call

On paper the plus-4 or p5, but Honestly the FMS or the toro team would kick butt.

I have seen a couple nodded novas run and they were off the hook they were both powerhousercperfoemance.com modded the p5 was great bottom to mid and te modded toro was just plain insane. It gave my modded speed a good run for the $$$ the toro was in an 8t 2.0 great combo.

2010 spec P5XLT with 41021 manifold and 2084 pipe. Use a 7mm carb insert for *most* tracks.

Great runtime and torque curve; won't miss the top end of the Toro unless you have a huge track.

Any of the +4's will have a little less bottom and a touch more top.

The FMS and Toro are unnecessary unless you're on a big track or just *want* a hotter engine.

I have the FMS and I'm a little disappointed in the low end. I was hoping for more snap like the +4 or ninja and can't get that with the FMS. It does pull smoothly from low kinda like a 4 stroke and then hits hard mid to top. The FMS is a work of art with the tungsten balanced-putty filled crank and ceramic bearing.

I would say the team toro or the P5. The FMS needs a little help in the bottom end dept to be a good truggy engine.

The man knows...

Seriously; best all around general-purpose 10+min runtime truggy setup.

For the Losi; drop to a 48t center ring gear for larger/medium sized tracks. 47t if you're feeling frisky with a 140+ foot straight and no tight turns. Otherwise for most short, club tracks you're fine with the stock 50t gearing.

I liked the 9853ss pipe better. It let the engine breathe, but the 41021 is off the hook, and so is the p5....I run a 7.5 only because I didn't have a 7. great advice man....

Yes the 9853ss will have a touch more power but the 2084ss has better power/runtime balance
