Just buy an o.s. cv-r. It is super easy to tune and if you need more top end then adjust the manifold to give it to you.

I think the Drake engine you're looking at is WAY easier to drive, and to drive fast, than the O.S. motors I've had experience with (lots of CV's and CV-R's).

No, they aren't broken in. Blue-printed, sealed, checked over, and the needle settings are checked out of the box, but the engine hasn't been run.

I was talking about the RPM arms. Sometimes a slower motor is good also. Easier to control

No, those RPM arms flex too much for the racer set. They're good for bashing because they do flex so much and are softer than the arms they replace but it does make setting up the suspension for racing more difficult and makes the truck handle a bit more vague. That's why the hardcore racers go with graphite because it's much stiffer than stock but much more brittle. Besides in racing you don't smack into many things (OK on occasion you do) what you do break on an XXX-NT is the battery box when you miss the landing off the big jumps and touch down on the rear end. You could buy the Native Racing battery box and a standard 5 cell humpback Rx pack.

I haven't broken a battery box since the release of the AD2..the battery boxes have been changed and are much stronger now.

I'm not sure why RPM doesn't make arms for Losi trucks..they used to make them for other models. It's a business decision they've made. Personally, I think Losi's stuff is pretty durable now.
