+1. its a great engine. .28s arent worth the extra little power. These days a .21 is more than enough to pull a truggy around.

+2 on the JPX .21. The .28 would be hard on the
drivetrain parts of your car. Costing you alot more
money replaceing worn out parts all the time.

great engine I run it in my gt2 on road but if you have a choice like everyone says go with the jpx .21 but to answer your question has killer bottom and good power all the way to the top
