Quick noob question: I see that some RTRs and ARRs come with .26, .28, higher displacement motors.

When it comes to race legality, what displacements are legal? According to the "standard" nitro 1/8 buggy racing rules.

Most places that you are going to race at do require a .21 engine displacement, but that only carries suit for an engine that is not involved in an RTR kit.

I know for my clubs rules, as well as CORCS (Canadian Off-Road Championship Series) they allow a buggy to have whatever engine came in it (.26, .28 etc) only if it is the stock RTR motor that is in the car.

Its allowed to let people into the hobby easier, and not have to spend $2000 for a pro-spec buggy.
