Default Noob Q: Which engine can I use in the HPI RS4?

I'm a super noob at this stuff...I have an old HPI RS4 (Tarmac Edition...don't know if that matters) and I think the engine is busted. Can someone recommend an engine I could use with this platform? I'm just looking to play around with it...nothing too powerful, just enough so I could play with it. Vendors are welcome to chime in with some info, thanks~!

^Thanks for your reply. I did a search on ebay and came up pretty dry. There was one engine for sale (used). How much do they usually go for? Again, I'm not looking for anything crazy, just a normal engine I could use.

I have the Nitro Star .12e pull start motor. It came with the car...I'm looking for something similar. Thanks for your reply guys, but $300 is too much, I'm looking to spend...$50 or less? Haha I know it's not a lot but I don't do any competition with it, just some good old backyard fun.

you can run this.....

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXBZ30&P=ML



its an OS....its 99 at tower........the only other thing you will need is a set of HPI motor mounts.....


OR

you can wait a few days,and I will see if,out of ALL the billions of dollars of HPi stuff I Own,I see if I have a 12e motor new,or in nice shape..which I will sell you cheap....OR


you can buy this for 79.99....which,I think should bolt in with the motor mounts.....

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXFYN7&P=ML


OR

you can go here and send in your old motor for a t15 engine(same as the tower engine,cheaper price,a little more hassle as you have to ship yours....)

is that enough choices?..
