Are these good engines?
hpi .25, a cen matrix .28, losi mach 427, and a picco 0-1

Never had any but I think LOsi Had the 427 in there RTR's They seemed to make good power.

Mach 427

Dvx400Rider 01-11-2009 12:12 AM

What about the other two???

Well, piccos are ok, hard to tune with stock carb. Cen is a down grade as well as the hpi compared to the mach 427. I ran the mach and its a strong motor. Was about 4-5 gallos with mine and i sold it and the guy says its still running about 8-9!

Also, what about an hpi .28 big block?

Yes, mach 427 is a definate for that hell fire from the choices you picked. Run it will a losi ht pipe or sportwerks ht pipe or sport pipe. Or a jp-1!
