I would think so.

Now all I need to do is get on the ball and start buying :-). I think I'm going to take a look at the futaba 3pks or stick with my original plan and get the 4pks who knows. I am going to get the ninja engine for sure. Servos, still not sure?? I'm going to be getting the mspec very soon ...

The #1 advantage fo the 4pks over the 3PKS is Weight savings.. Features are virtually the same, I think the 4pk has 1 additional menu that the 3 doesn't, but I don't know what it is..

On a scale of 1-10 how fast of a engine do you want ? also what is your tuning experience and what fuel do you plan to run ?

10 duh lol. I'm going to be running O'Donnell 25% fuel. I'm pretty good at tuning. I tuned and can tune a 3.3. They are known to be hard to tune. I am having problems getting the tune right on my xl. Hating life :-(. I'm really liking the ninja tho but I'm open to suggestions if you feel there are better.

Well if your after a 10 then I will say you should look at my Clocked Nova P5XLT....a Nionja B02 would be a 6.5 and this would be a 10 in terms of power/performance...its cheaper too......In other words my Clocked P5 will be a pile faster then the stock Ninja...

You are correct my good sir. It is a very good track and well worth the drive. Since a new race season is coming around there going to be redoing the track. If you ever make it down or up here hit me up. I would love to race you and I can take you to dirt burners..

Hey maximo..

I have a few questions for you since you know alot out clocked engines. I have two in mind and would like your opinion.

Here's number one
http://www.clockworkracingengines.co...s-21xz-b-speed

Number two.
http://www.clockworkracingengines.co...s-cre-wrxprob6

Or the b5. As I said before money isn't an option for me as of right now and I want my dream truggy. You know, the one where it makes everyone drool over your set up

When I start getting my stuff ill make sure I update this thread. So be looking out on here over the few months or so..

P.s.
What do you think for my savage xl?? Its this or the lrp 32, I want something with low end power and will last for my xl also easy to tune. This stock 5.9 is putting a bad taste in my mouth with tuning. Making me keel like a noob again :-(.

Here's the engine.
http://www.clockworkracingengines.co...-novplus28-7rt

Look at my Bonito instead of the Speed..its much faster and much fancier and less money...Speeds are OK, but the Bonito kills it.........

The engine you want is my Clocked P5XLT

that Nova 28-7RT is badass...it is much much more powerful then either the LRP 32 or the K5.9.....

Oh..I know soo much about Clockwork engines as I am the guy who builds them ! I am the co-owner of Clockwork.......
