buy a cheapy....the first nitro engine you buy you'll probably blow up. It's a big learning curv running a gas engine so don't buy a OS speed while you are learning to tune.

I'll agree with that. Especially if he has no experience at all with tuning. I'd still recommend a Werks B2, for around 160 to 170 they're hard to beat and they will run with anything depending on track size. Or a B6 for faster tracks. I've had Novas from a P5 to a Bonito n a buggy and they r great engines but I think the Werks r as good and much cheaper. Just tune it well, watch your temps, keep a good oiiled and clean air filter on and enjoy

too true... a cheaper race engine still go's hard. I've heard good things about Werk's engines.
