Default Sho engine

Hey guys. Its been a long time since I've been here. Anyways, I have the RDLogics Sho buggy. Its a gret buggy, fast, and very durable. It came stock with a .21 engine, but I'm looking for something bigger after this engine wears out that will drop right in. What are your guys' suggestions?

I can tell you what I had in mine before.
Various .21's, OS .21, OS .30 and JPX .28
BTW, bigger isn't always better. But that 30 sure was fun!!

For you SHO buggy i would go with a good race .21 5 port by GO Engines, they are affordable and fast with great runtime, and for the 5 port all you need is a dynamite 086 pipe, your pipe that came with the car should work fine, this is just the combo i run, thought i would give my opinion befor the rush hits lol good luck.

I personally dont like go motors but thats just my opinion. I currently run a .21 falcon motor in my hyper 8.5 and the thing rips but is very linear and easy to drive. I love mine and plan on buying another one for my truggy when my jp mod black motor wears out. If you are not familiar with them they are very similar to a ninja motor but has a different crank in it.
