Default 1/8 buggies

I have just gotten a new ofna hyper 7 pro. I was wondering what would be the best racing engine to put in it? I really can't decide between novarossi or an ofna/picco.

Well you have alot to choose from... are you looking highend with sick power? or medium power medium price? Oh Nitrohouse has the Ofna/Picco 0-1 for 239.99 now. It doesnt seem to be a bad block for the money. I havent run that engine, so I cant totally comment on it.

try the picco g1 pro BV, novarossi 21 sbk or rb reckward ws7, you don't really want the BIGGEST engine out there unless your track is huge

Thanks for the replies. I think the Picco o-1 would probably be the best. I have heard alot of good things about it. Thanks again for your replies.

I see you just joined the forum . You are correct sir. My current signature is from the song Ænema. I had to change my signature recently because a moderator complained that it was too long. It used to be:

If I let you, you would make me destroy myself.
In order to survive you, I must first survive myself.
I can sink no further, and I cannot forgive you.
There's no choice but to confront you,
to engage you,
to erase you.
I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain.
I will use my mistakes against you.
There's no other choice.
I'm shamless now,
and nameless now,
and noone now,
and nothing now.
But my soul must be Iron,
because my fear is naked.
I'm naked and fearless, but I'm dead inside.

That is from the song "Bottom". Before that it was this:

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in,
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out,
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.



Finally a Tool fan that knows his stuff. Ever seen them in concert?

Also take a look at the new CMB Buggy engine they have. It is supposed to be awsome. YOu can choose between a barrel style slide carb or a flat style slide carb. It also has a tapered piston and sleeve were as most of the others if not all have just tapered sleeves and not pistons. This is what makes it so time consuming to break in your engine. CMB has changed the breakin process. You will spend about half the time breaking it in and the performance of a tapered piston and sleeve is extraordinary.

Unfortunately I havent seen them in concert, every time they seem to roll along to the bay area I am broke, or the concert is sold out. I love TOOL though, their new cd is absolutely amazing.
