Default will this engine go good with a jato?

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGGP4&P=0

i am building a jato, and i was deciding between this one and a 2.5r
will this engine fit? will it strip any gears in the tranny? also, i know i will have to upgrade the CVD's, so does anyone know where i can get them for a jato? thanks

O.S for their reliability and easy tuning.

ok, well it sounds like the O.S. is the better choice (i figured), but how will my transmission hold up to a .18, and will the .18 CV-R fit good? thanks

P.S. i also need to know who makes CVD's for the jato that i can use for this engine because i dont think the stock ones will hold up

You won't have any problems at all but why are you replacing the 2.5?

well, it came down to either the 2.5r, or an O.S. .18
the reason i went with the O.S. was becasue i called the guy at my LHS and asked him about the O.S. engines, and he said that they r much better engines than the 2.5's. he said they run better, cooler, and last a long time. i've heard that from other people as well so, thats the reason i went with one.

P.S. i went on O.S.'s website and looked at the TZ on there (mine is not here yet), and it doesn't look like u can get a pullstart for them, so that means i need a starter box right? can some one provide me with a link or a company name that makes starter boxes that will work with this engine? thanks
