Default LRP Z.28R Spec.3 - Any good?

Is the LRP Z.28R Spec.3 any good?
I've seen rating with 33,000 RPM and 3.86PS output, but how does that transfer to reality?
Is it reliable and worth $110 delivered?
I currently have the stock MTA4 S28 engine which is nice but I want mooore!!!

Thumbs up LRP Z.28r Spec 3

YES...YES...YES, it's a strong motor, almost too strong, I had to finally adjust the radio to slow down the throttle action to try to keep wheel spin to a minimun, it's been reliable, easy to tune, If it has a pull start... get a back plate to eliminate it, you'll be much happier.I got my plate from Go Hobbies Part# ASC-LRP38111. I just converted mine over to bump start and won't look back. For $110 you're getting your money's worth IMO. You better get it before I do YOU'LL BE IN ROOSTER TAIL HEAVEN!!!!

depends what you intend on doing with it.

Racing at a national level.....NO
Racing at a State Championship level.....No
Club racing.......Will be good until driving skill podium level
Hitting the track when ever you can........ excellent

This is a very good motor. I am not trying to talk you out of it. What most people need to do is spend money on stuff other than getting the highest level racing motor until their skills are on the same level of the motor

If this is your first season racing, or if your a racer that doesn't intend on going to ALL the events. Then this motor will be just fine.

The engine is a monster. Have it on my Raze and it is almost too much for it. easy to tune, do not bother with the pull-start one you will convert it sooner or later. Had the string brake and problems with the one way bearing. Other than that WOW.

Ii's on its way now, its going in my MGT 4.6
I use it for bashing and plan to race it maybe once-twice a year for fun, the nearest track to me is 2 1/2 hours drive away and my dad won't take me lmao.

I'll take the dual start off the MGT's engine if it'll fit

Thanks guys/guyets.
