Get yourself a Team Almighty 19 turn motor from www.teamalmighty.co.uk they are great reliable motors that should be a good start for you and wont be too fast straight away. 19turn is also a good class to get started in as its not as slow as stock but doesnt eat money like the modified classes do.

The more important question is... is it legal were you race? Most tracks run a "stock" motor rule and this motor wont qualify as stock.

rush evo dude: Your best bet is to find the place you plan on racing and go spectate. Watch for the faster cars and ask them what they are running. Then take a look at their cars and get an idea of where to start with your setup. Then when your ready get out there and race with them.

Um, yea. I've tried it. It's not my favorite though. My fave would have to be the DNA1 body from ProtoForm.

I really like the Stratus, I do not like the Alfa. Never tried the DNA, it looks cool though...

I'm looking forward to trying the new Mazda 6 from Pf. Also want to try the Ride - Accord Bspec as I've been told they perform better then normal on T2's?
Has anyone else tried this shell on a T2?
