Default Engine for G4S

Hi everybody. I just bought my first on road kit. Team magic G4S. I owned a on road before but i do most of my rc racing on dirt. I have no idea about .12-.15 engines. Any ideas whats i should get? Does this car take a SG crank?

Thanks for the help.

Default Sirio X Novarossi X JP

Sirio EVO3 or Novarossi NSR12S3 or JP FX3. Anyone is a very good engine.

there are a lot of good engine these day, what matter is how much can you get them and how much you plan to spend. remeber, pipe also count some money and good pipe is very important too.

how much you want to spend?

I saw a lot of posts on the G4S and i think i am gonna be really happy with it.
I looked into the OS but they only have .12 and .18TZ and i think i want a .15. I do parking lot racing and dont have any size rules. The .18 i think is a little much for my track. My local hobbie shop told me to get a RB but i see nobody mentioned that. How are the RB's?

RB engines are excellent and some of the best engines out there ( very reputable company). I run an RB v12 3 port non turbo in my g4 and it works very well. I run on a small track so the rb fits the bill.

On a very big track, there's the rb rody modified and 5 port versions.

For parking lot racing almost any engine will work well. You may need to adjust the gearing a bit the match the power band of the engine and pipe combo. The best choice will be an engine with better low end and linear power band. I have heard that the TZ fits this description. I use the RB V.12 3port non turbo for parking lot racing and really like the power. You will need the power because the limited grip of parking lot racing makes it a bit similar to off road where getting the power down to the ground is a priority.

I have a question. I noticed that the wheels can actually turn more then my servo can go. Should i be able to turn the wheels until they stop and not stop because of the servo?

simple, make your servo turn more
what is the dual rate and EPA on your radio? maybe you just didn't set the servo to its max travel

have you superglued your CF part? that increase the durability of the CF parts and look "PRO"

I changed the servo horn because the one i used was to small which was not letting me turn all the way.

I have not CA them yet. but will

What do you guys think of this engine
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Seems like a good price for a nova engine. I also noticed that it not on novas site. Anybody know why not?

thanks

the title said it is threaded shaft, which cannot be use on G4S and most centax out there, so you have to look somewhere else
