I have the same car, And i do get blown away on the straights. but i find that learning to stay off the boards will help out more than a super fast engine at the moment. if and when u buy a engine make sure u get a standard shaft engine. I hear MT-12 is a good one to buy. or you could just get the .12R SS its a little faster than the .15FE and you'll be faster. But to be fastest you need to stay off the boards and be consistant. more than a engine will do for you.

There are alot of good engines out there. The 12r ss is a good engine, Os has some good engines (12 cvr). I have a Nova CX12p also a good engine. It all depends on how much power you want. The Nova RS12S3 is an awsome engine (1.35hp)
