Hi can someone tell me the rules/regs on 1/8 on road racing size max etc.
Also what are the better brands of motor to use in this racing, can you use buggy/truggy motors? or don't they have enough revs?

.21's only From 3 years at midwest series races nova 35-21 is in more cars than another motor. If your on a budget picco P9R.
The best is a murnan modified novarossi cordoba.

Buggy engines are not going to perform in a road setting. Ignore the the offroad engines all together. Turbo plugged engines make a little more power.

I have three of these motor, and they are great. I also have quite a few Novarossi <high dollar engines> and the Picos run right with the Novarossi engines.

That engine pictured has the wrong back plate on it. It would interfer with the side belt. No pull or rotor starts will work. Solid back coers only.

You can also use a 2033 pipeset as well. The Sirio 2013 gives a bit more power with a little less mileage. You also can use a Nova 2052 pipe with the medium conical header. These are the pipes that will work. But I do not know what your rules are in Australia. You can use the new picco pipes as well according the the Efra rules for mid 08 and on.

I mean the JP 2/3 will definitely work with PICCO Offroad engines only, as this pipes are designed for off road use.

Hi ...
If you are on a budget (like me) a motor worth a look is the SH XT2 it has a hand made crank and ceramic piston.
I have one and it is quick enough ... cant comment on longevity yet though.
Only $200!
