Default 1/8 buggy engine

I have used the search function but cannot find any threads that help me. I am looking to buy and engine for my sp2. I dont really need killer power but I would like for it to be reliable and inexpensive. I know the vg is good but any other engines fit my needs. I would like for it to hoild a tune well. Thanks

Thats a pretty loaded question! If you stay with any of the name brand engine manufactures eg. OS, RB, Rossi, etc. you'll be fine. Just follow their break-in procedures and maintenance intervals. As far as "holding a tune" all the engines hold their tune we just need to get the weather to hold a tune.

EB mods V psec is very good. You can get 9-10 minutes a tank without overheating. I have the specs of that engine on our online store.

I'll throw out a 2nd for the Go, I got mine in October and love it....Even at full retail (which i didn't pay) it's still a killer deal.
