Default Back-up Motor Tight Track

Guys for my backup car MTX-3 which I race on small loose tight track, I have been running a OS 12TR, but picked up a Mugen/Novarossi MR-12 with a parts car and the motor is almost brand new. Which would you run?



For my main car MTX-3 Prospec I run a N12LS5 or OS 12tz5.

Me personally I'd either get the Mugen or the Picco JLR .12 Red-Dot either way you can't go wrong although the Picco engine is a bit cheaper than the Mugen so it depends on what your budget is. As they say power ain't sh*t if you can't handle the car!!

On the small track, get the Novarossi 12L. I a Have simular set up. I use a TS NS12S5 in my 720 and a NRS12S3 in my 710. I think the Nova has better low and midrange than the OS. Espcally for small parking lot tracks, torque is good!

You guys need to READ his post. He isn't asking what engine to BUY. He wants to know which of his existing engines would be better to use.

The MR12 is the best choice BTW for any type of track. Its just a better all around engine then the TR.
