This link has interesting info on dyno of alot of engines http://hpisavageforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1419


Thanks

Years of experience modding and running both engines ! Picco in the right hands beats up the LRP pretty good...Way more torque, more top end and better mileage...not to mention better overall engine life.....

You have to keep in mind that rated RPM and real world RPM are two very different things... As fine as the Axial RR is, its by no means anywhere near the highest revving in its class... a Nova 28,Picco 28,RB 28,GRP,Sirio 28 and even a LRP 28 will all rev significantly higher....However like anything it all comes down to cost...for the $$ the RR performs very well in its class...

I have the Axial 28 RR with pull start in my Kyosho GT and it outstanding for
on road, in that car. It may not be as good for off road.
I paid less the 150 for in it on e-bay brand new. I think dollar
for dollar you can't beat that. I also have a turbo button
i'm about to drop in, that might make it even better. Kyosho
also has a smaller fly wheel for the GT2 that I put on it that
is a perfect match for that engine. Check out the vidio link
my car is the yellow GT with the Axial in it.

Are you talking about the LRP DM1 video where the guys does some awesome drifting? His driving is superb but that poor engine is so lean it has to be burning up in there. Towards the end of the video it sounds like it is done and you can tell by the guys reaction that he knows something is wrong. It is not a bad reflection on the engine. It sure caught a lot of abuse in that video. A little more fuel would have helped a lot.

The Picco makes more power..... not tuned like that though.

Default LRP Z28 Spec 3

I have this motor - ON THE WAY - and the rotostart adapter that goes with it. I am just trying to find WHICH rotostarter it the one to fit. I also realize a few cuts are needed to make it all fit.

Associated Rotostart Backplate Z.28R - aka - LRP38134

So far I see:

HPI87127 Nitro Star K4.6
HPI87117 Nitro Star BB/Force 21/25

and the 12/15 rotostarter might fit - if that is what the adapter was made for.

Neither Tower, Associated or HPI can tell me which one.

I was going to just get the K4.6 which is for the current Savage/Axial
