Default Nitro engine question Size and power

What is the difference in power between engine sizes, like is a .21 stronger than a .26 or .32. Comparing size and in similar price ranges. I have never thought that the .21 is ALWAYS going to be faster than other engines but that it had more to do with meeting race-specs, while another guy here thinks that if its a .21 its better automatically and that all else is lesser.

A .21 can put out good power and fuel economy. Most .26's/.28's will have more torque and a little bit more power but you sacrifice fuel millage. Once you race on a track you'll realize that power is rarely the limiting factor, your driving and car setup will make more of a difference in how fast you get around.

I understand the fuel issue. I have an Ofna Violator with a .32 right now so I use alot of fuel. I agree about the car setup and driver ability is more than motor, I just wanted to know about the motor question from the experts
