Best engine there is for that money, nothing, and I mean nothing comes close !

Don't get me wrong, there are faster engines around... but not below 300 dollar.

Great engine, you won't regred... or it must be that you didn't looked at a 4 stroke... but that's a whole other story

ps. The HPI .18 stock engine is also not bad if you don't want to go to a startbox. But it doesn't compare to the TZ ! And no the TZ is not available with a pullstart..

correct me if im wrong maybe this engine doesnt fit, but i dont see why not.

why not try an OS .18CV-R(X). it is $90 for tons of power for a sedan, and you are looking at OS realibilty
