Losi 8ight on the way - What motor's do you use???

I have a Losi 8ight on the way, but I have not ordered a motor yet. What is everyone using? Bashing and racing, I will probably get one for each...

Thanks for the ideas...

I have 2 that I own and recommend. RB WS7 X3 and also a Hot Mod P5. Both motors are fast and run well. I hope that helps

V Spec, even in stock form is an animal in power! Gets great run time and no engine runs and idles nicer than a Vspec. My first year running them and can't believe I waited this long!

it kinda depends on where, and what type of tracks you're gonna run on......if you're gonna buy 2 motors, i'd buy an os .21 v-spec with an os 2050 pipe for larger tracks and an os .21 vg with a jp2 pipe for tighter tracks and bashing.

if you race/run in a hot/humid environment and want/need an aftermarket head for your os motors, os rocket is absolutly the best there is. they have a great head for the v-spec, and last i talked to them, they said that they were going to have a head for the vg by the first of the year....meaning, they might have it by now.

Agreed! Love the VSPEC and T2050 combo! As well as the 21RG and JP2 combo!

V-spec here too. But I'm currently trying out a VG. V-spec has a ton of power and the VG is fairly close to it. IMO the Vg is easier to tune and idles smoother though.

I'm a little biased...but I've been really impressed with Trinity's new Platinum Edition engines...
