Default help with engine choice .15 or .18

Hay, im wanting to up grade me engin and i can choose between a OS CVR .15 or a Team Orion .18, this is for my 4 tec, my cousin gave it to me, he said it has alot of $$$$$$$ put into it but needs a new engine. He said pretty much the whole car is aftermarket. I want krazy speeds but also good handel, he said the handle on the car was very good because of all the upgrades, im also getting into drifting. Any info will be nice.

well is this your first nitro? cus if it is, crazy speeds arent the thing you need, noobs cant handle speed, but an os 18 cv-rx would work nicely, or an os 18tz

yes, this isnt the first one ive had, ive been messing with them since i was 7, but i just recently got back into it. The speeds not an issue, but out of the two engines i listed what one is better? I dont want it to be out of control fast. the car has been fooly moded to handle with speed.

whichever one has the highest rpm range will typically give you the most top speed, but a .12 might take time to get up there

we have all had experience with nitro engines, i would say go for the .18 because it has more power overall, even if it doesnt rev as high, gear it higher because it should have the torque
