Default Trinity D3.5 21.5t motor

I'm looking for a new motor for my X-ray T2 007,
I'm running VTA class is this trinity motor legal too run in a stock 21.5t class?
Also can I get other suggestion on other motors that will be good in this class

Thanks

Are you racing an outlaw vta or ROAR rules where 21.5 are legal?
I have raced against a D3.5 and it is the 21.5 motor to have it has more bottom end topend of the 21.5 motors I have seen. Do you think VTA tires can hold a D3.5 21.5? I race in gt at our track and we have no tire rule yet.

The reason we run 21.5 is so that everyone in Western Canada didn't have to go out and buy a new motor, just because the US changed their rules.

Glad the 21.5 motors work for your group. What is the average sized track that VTA races on in Western Canada? What is an average lap time?

Airride, ask at the track you will be racing at. It's probably fine, but rules vary from track to track. I don't think the 21.5 D3.5 or 21.5 ReVtech were ever ROAR approved(probably never submitted for approval), but most places allow them.
