hi....
I am new to stadium truck scene as well. so I might be wrong. but, from what I heard and read, people use O.S. 12 TR, O.S. CV-RX, or novarossi mt12. I am thinking of putting in Sirio SP12TRP Standard though. just want to experiment with sirio engine. in my opinion, if you are new to the rc scene, it is not a good idea to get an engine that is turbo.
hope I helped you a little.

O.S engines are well known for their reliability and easy tuning. For a beginner I'd suggest you start out with a CVR or a Fantom. The fantom is just as good as the OS however rebuilds I think are cheaper and its a bit faster than the cvr. Either one is great. BTW I have a Losi Sport NT. Really nice truck. I'll update my site one day and post the pictures of my latest ride on there.

Another great motor is the Orion Wasp .12. It's got loads of low end and the fuel mileage is awesome. Try it out you won't be dissappointed. Hope you have fun with your truck.

Post XXX-NT Setup Info

The best place to find setup info on the XXX-NT is over on Trinity Tech Talk. They have a forum for the man himself. Just ask Adam and he will respond.


http://techtalk.teamtrinity.com/tt/f....php?forumid=4

The forum is "Ask the Drake"

Hope this helps

Later,

JJ-

Once you get that truck dialled in, you will find that the XXXNT is the best handling R/C truck made.

RCCA has a good forum for the NT in the vehicles section.
