Default Modding .32s?

Just want some opinions on modding .32 engines? Would they go crazy after modding?

For example, taking a axial .32 and getting a high stage mod done to it, putting on a bump start backplate and adding ceramic bearings and putting it in a buggy to bash around, would it be crazy fast? Or not worth the time and effort?

Anyone seen this done before or does anyone know of any vids?

IMO, while it could prove to be an interesting project...probably not worth it.
If brutal bottom end is what you're after, along with respectible mid to top AND good fuel mileage...look into either the Radical/OPS T version engine or the Trinity ExTech .21 or .24. Pair either up with a Werks or Sirio 2013 and you'll be very pleased. I mention these in particular a I have experience with them. Im sure others would recomend other engine combos....

I think you would get more power out of a super high modded, already fast .28. .32s aren't race engines, therefor they won't be as fast as one that is.
