For racing off-road a 6.5 or 7.5 works well with just about any vehicle... My buddies and I use them in buggies, trucks and even 4wd.

Perfect amount of power and easy to gear without too much fear of ever overheating them.

I am more of a 7.5 or 8.5 kind of guy.I will use 1 of the 2 in mod truck , but usually go with the 8.5 just because with a little gear it's like driving a 7.5 light motor.Good top end with a very drivable torque band,and in a 5 minute race it may see 135 deg. in temp.
