It really depends on your motor and tuning, I get about 10 mins out of my .20, but its tuned a bit lean. And i get about 12 mins out of my .15, but it also a bit lean, it really depends your engine, driving style, and tuning.

and you tank size. . . a general idea is 5-15 minutes

I would reccomend an o.s. .15 chose which ever fits into the NTC3, I dont know the car so I cant tell you which specific one.

If you're planning to race, you have to use a .12 engine (ROAR Rules).

Find out what your rules are first.
Both those engines are .15 engines.
It would be no use getting any of those if the rules say .12 engine only.

The NTC3 comes with a .12 that I'm sure will be plenty of power for you. It is a race legal engine, youll have to break in the engine before you can start hammering it at the track.
