Default most popular 1/10 stadium truck racing engine?

CVEC is about to start working on a pipe for the Losi XXX-NT and RC10GT, but we need to know what is the most popular racing engine?

.12 only, since we are looking at ROAR rules.

Thanks

I mostly see mt .12's and the RB side exhaust motors in gas trucks at the races. I'm looking forward to the new pipe!

OS .12CVR is #1, the OS .12TR is gaining strength.

the OS TR will soon be discontinued with the TZ replacing it.

I think the three most used motors for gas truck are the MT-12, SIRIO Evo2(side or rear and are very similar in performance), and the OS CV-R(but the CV to me is right there with this motor(just wish that OS would make the CV a chrome sleeve and discontinue the CV-R for the extra power the CV-R has is never needed, just the CV needs longer life).

I think the Nova Rossi CX12 is a still a popular racing engine. The OS CVR is my personal choice though.

I would have to agree with the OS and the MT12.

DuraTrax makes a replacement ABC set for the CV .12. Personally, I like the CV-R .12. Just the right amount of power. I've been running one in my XXX-NT for a couple of years.

Rear exhaust engines can overpower these lightweight 2WD stadium trucks quite easily

I tried it a long time ago, it seemed to last even less than the ABN sleeve. I just do not like how the CV-R felt in my truck no matter how I tune it, set the linkages, or set the radio(most of my local tracks didn't stay moist or hold a lot of traction for a prolonged amount of time, was when I ran it).

It seems that the CV-R is one of the best smallblock O.S engines ever made, but what's wrong with the CVRX? No one seems to use them.

I belive the CVRX's are pull start engines.

As for the MT12, they are great, but where can a person get one nowadays? I haven't seen them around in a long time.
