Default Hpi or OS?

I'm running a .15FE Nitro Star in my Super Nitro RS4 and it's just not enough to keep up with the other guys at the track. I'm looking for some feedback on how the Nitro Star .15SS runs and how it would be compared to my FE. Also, I was looking at the OS .15 CV-RX w/10C Slide Carb. What is the comparison between the OS and the Hpi engine and are there any other .15 size engines that would be better suited for me. I'm on about a $150 - $180 budget.

How is the Hot Bodies .18 Engine? It's the one featured in the TowerHobbies magazine for $75. I like the price, I just wonder if it performs.

I have the OS CVR .15 in my Super and its awesome. It can pull the front wheel off the ground coming out of a turn.

Get it, you'll love it.

And treky aint lying...his car was easily one of the fastest cars at the HPI challenge in nj..

When he first ran it,I was standing out on the track,to see how he was doing..

That car comes out of the corner,he hits the trigger,and the front end lifts the wheels off the ground..My jaw dropped...It was something to watch..
