Default Which OS .12 for AE GT2?

I'm getting into Nitro racing, and have a GT2 on the way. base on the spec on on AE site, the new GT2 will run on SG Crank, Rear exhaust.

My understanding also is rotary carb is the one to get for off road racing. So which OS should I get. All the Rotary carb model run standard shaft, and all SG shafts runs on Slide carb. Whats up with that?

or am I misssing something?

btw, I'm looking at the TZ model.

sorry my org. post might be a little misleading. I meant to say my LHS ordered the truck. No one knows when they'll arrive yet...

back to the issue... So there is no different in term of engine powerband? assuming when are the same brand... I would think that a engine designed for offroad would have more low-end.

Engines for off road actualy have less low end. A well setup truck can carry a lot of speed through corners, but when you are accelerating from a standstill you need to baby it untill the weight of the car has shifted to the rear of the car before you realy get on the throtle. The .12 cvr is the way to go. It will give you enough power to pull wheelies down most of the track and yet it won't be uncontrollable power on a low traction track. If you are running on a track that features 200+ft. straights then the new drake platinum editions may be the way to go. They have a powerband similar to the cv-r, but they rev a lot higher. I have been running with nothing but an o.s. cv and have been very fast on a smaller track just because it's all I need on the track.
