Default .12 nitro engine

I am going to need a solid .12 nitro engine that will cost me no more then $180. I need somthing that is easly tuned. The reason i am not willing to spend more is because i am not going to be able to get out every weekend but i do want to try to be competative and have fun when i get out.

The JL is the best motor for that price. Check Sam at Kamamkaze, he has it in stock.http://www.kamikazetoysandhobbies.co...php?prod=51124

Pretty much a unanimous decision, JLR Red Dot is the way to go! Heres a great thread on that engine.

Wow that pipe is a little pricey what about somthing around the 50-70 dollar range Thanks for the help guys. The reason i am going so cheap is because i am not going to be able to get out every weekend with this car. maybe 7 weekends this onroad season tops. Let me know

Get the Skyline VR 12 PLUS pipe set which will fit your budget and it works great with the JL engine.
