yes it is a good motor. but i would go with the axial .28 RR. it makes almost the same amount of power and its lighter and that = faster

i have the .28 1S and it is a powerhouse. here are the actual power charts of the .28 1S and the .32

.28 1S: and remember the RR has at least .10 more hp than the 1S and it being lighter makes it get up to speed faster. bigger is not always better. what is this going in anyways.

I have the 28 Spec 1S, 32 and the 28RR. The 28 RR has major problems holding a temp. I sent it back in and Axial's joke of a Customer Service told me to iggnore the temps and just run it. They did nothing to rectify the problem, just sent me back the faulty engine. They said its common for the RR to run hot, but it was boiling over and flaming out in under 3 minutes. I sold it on ebay .

The Spec 1S 28 and 32 have been trouble free for 7 gallons on the 28 and 5 gallons on the 32. I couldnt be happier with them. IMHO the 28 Spec 1S will outrun and perform the 32.

like i said, bigger is not always better. i have almost 4 gallons on my .28 1S and it is VERY hard to turn the flywheel still. axial makes great motors...thay just need to re-think the .28 RR. the average life span of a .28 1S is 8-9 gallons, great for under 140 dollars.

Exactly my thoughts. The Axail 28 Spec and the 32 are both damn good engines. My 2 favorite RTR mills are the Mach 427 and the XTM 24.7 PRO, They will run with most 28's on the market. If I had to choose between the Axail 28/32 Spec 1S, XTM 24.7 PRO and the Mach 427 Id be at a loss. You cant go wrong with any of them.

all the axial engines are great, thats all I run, Ive had the spec 1s, the 32, and Im currently running the 28rr, you cant go wrong for the money, performs as well or outperforms way more expensive engines
