Racing legal ( and ROAR & EFRA legal ) : OS Speed Tuned 12TZ-3, Novarossi Plus12 3SCT or 3CT with Novarossi 2630 pipe

Racing legal ( but NOT ROAR & EFRA legal ) : OS Speed Tuned 12TZ-5, Novarossi Plus12 5SCT or 5CT with Novarossi Turbo pipe

Not Racing legal ( parking lot, or play alone ) : OS 18TZ with Novarossi Turbo pipe.


There are other racing engines like JP, Mega, RB, IDM. You free to pick.

Legal Racing engines are .12cu ( 2.5cc ) size.

well i run with a stock RB R3 and it was nearly just as quick as my Murnan 12-3CT so the Murnan RB R3 would take it down for sure http://murnanmodified.com/product_in...roducts_id=261

For a good starter motor, get an OS 12. OS makes nice motors and easy to tune. Plus the price is pretty reasonable. I don't know your level of expertise in RC to give you a realistic choice.
