The nitro Star .15FE is not a bad motor, if you take care of it and tune right you might not need to buy a fantom .15 . I had one in my old HPI RS4 and surprised alot of people with it.

Then I'll suggest the most interesting and quick path to hear a good kaboom!

40% nitro fuel and when you got your engine tuned at 230F catch the main needle and do two full turns clockwise.

Do some hard laps on your local track, most surely that on the backstraight at WOT you may hear:

WHIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiii (pop!).................................... (silence)

Use the inertia to go near pits, better than going to the end of backstraight to pick your car
