Default Engine choice for Tamiya MK2

Hello,

I would like to upgrade my Tamiya TG10.MK2 and am thinking of the OS12TZ. Does anyone have any suggestions/idea if this a good idea? I am looking for a mid-range engine for our door asphalt touring racing.

Thanks!

Thanks for your feedback. What tune pipes should I use for the MK2 with this engine?

Thanks again.

Ya, most of our racer here use sage pipe with O.S. Tz engine. However, skyline pipe is much tougher (as in the material use is harder n thicker). If not O.S. does come with their own matching pipe with the O.S. Tz but i forget what pipe is it!
