Check out the JLR Picco Evo 3 @ this website http://www.kamikazetoysandhobbies.co...p?prod=51124-3
Very affordable, Very fast, Very Reliable. As far as HP. It comes in just shy of the 1.7 HP mark. Most of the engines now are "Rated" around 1.6 and up.
I ran this engine all season long. I have had 2 of them. One I used only for the last few races of the season due to a failure of my first one. (my own fault, I never changed the connecting rod and it broke) I am selling the one i used for the last few races of the year so I can pick up a tuned or modified version for next season.

thanks for your help
