Default need help with losi muggy...

I want to swap out my mach 427 for a ninja .28 in my muggy but it seems the ninja is a bump start only engine so my dilemma is how do I convert my muggy to bump start? If its even worth it to go with a ninja over my mach 427. All I do really is bash.

Thanks for any help!

If all you do is bash i would look at these Losi 454,Dynamite's Mach 2 "Big Red" and the ZR.30 Spec.2 Pullstart Monster Truck Engine.

I personally really dislike bump box's esp if an engine is being touchy

A couple Other options. There are way more but here are a few
Axial .28/.32 RR-2
Picco .28
O.S. 30VG


All of these are pull or roto start acceptable

I agree w/ others, unless you race the pull start is more functional. I had the LRP z .28 spec 3 in my mug and it was awesome!!

Thats the best answer so far.
Get the spec 3 with the pull start and get losi spin start back plate (about $6.00) it is a direct bolt on for that engine. Find yourself a cordless drill, hang on and have fun.

Just noticed that you might not even need to buy one, you probably got a spin start already on your 427.
