Default what .12 engine

My friend just picked up a Losi xxx-nt sport and it looking at getting a .12 to drop in to it. He wants something that is as fast as the mach and that will last him a while. He will be racing it along with a little bit of bashing. What do you guys think he should get?
thanks for your time.

Thanks for your reply. Is that what ever one else was thinking ? He was looking at the Cvr and one of the Fantom motors.

Team Orion Wasps and Mt-12's are my favorites.

Losi parts A-9415 (servo mounting set) and A-9410 (Brake throttle linkage XXX-NT)

Follow the instructions in the kit's manual, or find the manual in PDF form on losi's website.

Btw I vote for OS TR and MT12

I'll put in my 2 cents in for the OS 12 TR. Very fast motor.
