How long have you been running?

What is your track like?

Lots of jumps with no run up?

Can you handle the power?

Which buggy?

The reason I ask is b.c. each motor has its own type of power.

For people starting off.

Get a 3 port motor.
Lots of jumps with very little run up. 3 port


Fuison x3 stock $180 runs great tunes easy

Werks B2 stock $150+ runs great good bottom MAKE SURE YOU GET THE UPDATED CARB. I had the old one and I could not get mine tune worth the #$#$ then I got the update Carb and it ran like a MF. 10 min pit stops



Arrow I seen some run they seem good also a 3 port


Associated Reedy 121vr 3 port runs great.

Novarossi P3X2 same as the Fuison I believe could be wrong.


You will need a pipe too. That will depend on the motor you are getting.


Novarossi p5xlt is a great motor can be a handful for new people?

I was looking at some of the STS motors before I bought a Picco but I am not looking for anything competitive. I am simply after something that is durable and holds a good tune.

A suggestion is you can go on eBay and find some of the motors on clearance and possible get something that was out of your price range. The Picco I bought for $40 shipped (new in the box) and I could not find it anywhere else for less then $180.
