Default LST Motor

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using LRP motors. They have released a .28 motor called the Z.28R SPEC. 2 and they are claiming 3.81hp!!! I am a bit unsure if this is correct as it is less than half of the price of the Novarossi 28! Any feedback would be great. Also has anyone used the proline 40 series bow ties on the LST or should I stick to the Super King Pins for racing.
Thanks for any help.

My dad has used 40 series bowties, they work great. Basically no sidewall flex...only problem is they're a little smaller then stock and lower the gear ratio. (Like its not already low enough!)

a .28 is a little rediculous. Are you sure you even want a bigger engine then the mach26?
And if losi still doesnt make a higher gear ratio, it's kind of pointless to do.

I can't comment on the .28 but LRP's z.21R 8th rallycross engine is superb

their .12 engine for 10th on-road is pretty special too from what I hear.

Does the LRP .28 fit in the LST then?

Not sure if it is a direct fit, but I am thinking that it might be worth a try.

Just checked and apparently it does fit.

I would definitely stay with the King Pins. They seem to have a little more traction than the bow ties and they definitely have more cushion which protects things like the axles and CVDs from breaking. I could never finish a race with the bow ties. I would always break my axles.

Breaking axles on an LST, interesting. Are you running on a 1/5 scale track by any chance? My dad happens to drive like a maniac and has finished several races with bowties.

Traction has a lot to do with the surface. What surfaces are you running on?

I got LST # 1766. Those first few thousand LSTs had the old version CVDs and axles. Your dad probably has the updated versions of those. I was running on a 1/8 scale monster truck/buggie track. When my LST would land big jumps, it sounded terrible because there was no padding from the tires with the bow ties. That's one main reason Losi made the stock tires and the King Pins with so much sidewall.
