Default MBX-6T engine .21 or .28

Alright guys I have the o.s. .21 vz-b with the 2060 pipe or the .28 xz o.s. engine with the jp 2 pipe. What would the best choice be racing. I had the .28 on my losi and it was a burner, almost to much power. But I dont want to run short if I go with the .21 What do you guys think?

The 6t is very light for a truggy. The drive line is also light. That .21 will be more then enough to race with and get you way better run times.

v-spec with 2060 is the better choice, the truck is geared more for a .21

You can run the 28 and have a ton of power to show off and look cool-or you could run the 21 and be smooth and WIN the race!!

Go for a ninja jx21 and a losi re-11 pipe. You won't be looking for a 28 lol.

he isn't looking to buy more, already has both

Shawn, run the VSpec. Your new truck is light and the VSpec has plenty of grunt for everything you'll need. Plus 10 minute pit stops are a plus

Dave runs a .28 in his 6T, Chad was running a .21, but just got a .28 XZ (probably after seeing the power yours made ) Point is, you got two very capable mills. If thats all you have I'd run the .28 in your truck and save the VSpec for your MBX6.
