the toro has the same feel as the plus 4 as far as delivery of power, but more, and the mid and topend engages like a pissed of cheetah, very powerfull mid and top, maybe to much motor for buggy, so that just leaves one place for this monster

sorry, the FMS, it's no stump on a log by any mean's, very affressive power, comes on fast, and only seem's to like the 9901 and JP3, the new 3 chamber NR pipes kill this engine, the 9901 is good on the Toro with short header.

I think the Toro is better for truggy than the 4

I am happy with OS speed Vspec II. But, I want to get a backup engine. I am debating whether to get Plus 4 or this ToroNero turbo

http://www.rc-toro.com/product_info....e46bf6810bb267

The price difference of them is not that large. It is about $60. The only concern I have is low end torque for the ToroNero. I remember the NovaRossi 367 is only good for high-revving

Most the NR driver's took the Toro out of buggy and ran them in truggy, used the Plus for buggy, Toro's got it
