Default Dynamite XP .24 Nitro Engine for 1/8 Buggy???

Is the Dynamite XP .24 Nitro Engine a good motor for someone new to nitro? I have run electric for 4 months and want to try nitro for the spring and summer. Also looking at Alpha F850 and Nova .21 BF. I will be running a MBX6.

na, i would say thats to much torque for a buggy but i think it would be great on a truggy though .

ive, ran a nova .21 bf on my buggy and liked it it was stock the power wasnt to bad with a 86 pipe it has good torque its a 3 port.

just dont overtighten the carb bolt on it it will strip easy on the .21 bf !

no, problem but i forgot to tell you that the .21 bf has a very tight pitch but if you have a heat gun its no problem this goes for a lot of itatian engines .

this is when there new and breaking them in.

its not a bad thing though.

Thanks for the info. Are you familiar with how the Alpha F850 compares to the Nova BF?

ive, only ran a bf. 21 which was in my buggy and right now im running a rb hobby 9 sport (s5) its a 5 port and has a nova carb on it.

ive ,seen guys run the alpha engines and said there really good but i dont know how they compare to the bf. 21 i would ask on the alpha engine tread on here.

but i did hear that the alpha engines are easyiser to break in than itatian engines like nova/rb.

.24 is illegal for buggy racing. .21 is the max engine size.

The nova is a sweet little engine.

It is a rule that is followed throughout the entire world of 1/8 scale nitro buggy competition. ROAR, IFMAR, Etc... Point is if you really want to race you shouldn't buy an engine bigger than a .21.

Most tracks will allow guys to run RTR's with stock cheapo .28's in them for club races, but if you're buying the engine, there's no need to shoot yourself in the foot.

Not to mention that running anything larger than a .21 is dumb anyway. Bad runtime/ unnecessary power.

i, know bigger engines than a ".21 " on a buggy is to much so i wouldnt run one anyways if i still ran buggy its crazy to lol.

you, are right most club tracks will allow you to run a "rtr .28" but i dont think they whould allow a raceing .28 engine but than again i never see all of them check what people is running anyways maybe a couple of tracks.

oh i know how bad .28 are on fuel and .26 than ive ran before on a buggy a long time ago .
