Default Truggy Motor

I have an Jammin Truggy that I need to pick a motor for. I currently have a RB TM 928 and an RB C5BB. Does anyone have experience with these engines? If so, which one would be the best application for the truggy? I will be racing the truck only and primarily on small to medium tracks with medium bite. I want to pick one of the two and sell the other so I can't just try both since it will kill the value of the one I decide to sell if I fire it. Thanks for your help.

i know two people that have put the c5 into lsp's and it seemed like the engine always ran hot then they put it in there buggies which were ttrs3's and they work great. i think the c5 is more designed for a buggy with smaller wheel. i think the 28 would be better choice for a truggy. then keep the c5 and put it in a buggy
just my $.02 from what i have seen

I have the LSP and I am going to be soon in the market for the C5BB, I like the RB 928 but my buddy had it in his Kyosho truggy and it tore the truck up pretty good, it really breaks down to personal preferance but for small to medium tracks we have been all going to 21's in our truggies, I know two guys who have the S7II and the 928's and the only time they break the 928 out is for the really big tracks...I hope this helps instead of confuses--lol

In my lsp on small med tracks I run a p5, and on larger tracks I pull out the v-spec and do wheelies down the straight.

Both of those engines are beasts to say the least. Unless you have a real smooth trigger finger they are too much. That is why you see so many UMT guys going back to the .21. Ya the truggy with the .21 might not be as fast but they are turning better laps times with the .21's. Food for thought!

Thanks to all of you guys, I'm going with the C5BB. If all else fails, I can run it in my buggies too. Thanks again.
