It is a .26.

The 427 stands for 4.27cc. Converted to ci, it is .26.


Also, the box that it ships in:

markr04 and Thopper are correct.

The 1.0 Losi 8ight and 8ight-T RTR's both used the Mach 427 which is .26 cubic inch.

The new 2.0 8ight RTR uses an engine called the 350(.21) and 8ight-T RTR uses the 454(.27) If these new perform like the Mach 427 7 port they will be awesome engines. That Mach 427 is still awesome and priced perfect.
