Default Best engine size for truggy ?

So, what size engine would you say is the best for a truggy .21 or .28 ? I cant for my life decide what to get, some say 21 because of fuel mileage and less stress on drivetrain, some say 28 because the extra power is needed. so what would you recomend ?

Thanks.

21, the 28 is WAY to powerful and leads to trouble.

I dont know why some say a .28. Wheelspin (aka peeling out) is slower than having traction. Get a .21 plenty torque, plenty speed (assuming you get a decent mill)

My Go Tech 5 port has almost too much torque. I'm sure it would be great in a truggy like the new Losi 8T or the Mugen MBX5T.

you actually should be more specific about which truggy you are putting the engine in. some truggies benefit from the 28 due to gearing restrictions.

i have a Vspec in my CRT and its fast as crap and gets great gas mileage and idles all day long.
