Default Shopping for a new engine and pipe?

I wanted to know what are some of the things to look for when buying an engine and pipe.

I will be putting my 710 together the next few weeks while I save for this.

I know i need a rear exhaust .12, but what else?
I also know what a hi-end and low-end pipi looks like based on the lenght of the chamber and the angle where it connects to the header.

In addition, what about fuel?


I am pretty new to nitro engines, and this will be my second nitro car.

for a 710, you can put any SG-SHAFT Engine in there along with a one pipe pipe, heres a picture http://www.rdlogics.com/1pc.htm

I would get a either Novarossi, RB, Mugen.... all that are in the big names, pipe is the same but you can add RD Logics in there too.

Fuel, most people go with 20% or 30% oDonnell

I would recommend a STS D3 engine.

CRC has them on sale right now for $149 and they are up there with the Nova Rossi based engines

thanks for the info,

however, are all the .12 engines the same as fas HP or number of ports ?

What do i need to look for in that sense regardless of brand?

Not all .12's are the same.There are 4 ports and 5 ports.Turbo and Non turbo.And the hp ratings are all different.If you want a super strong .12 get a Rossi,Sirio,or Novarossi.

Or maybe hold off a couple of months for the new MPP Palmaris .12

Rossi are fast engines but they suck for tuning and need a lot of attention. Same with some of the others.

If you need an engine right away that is quick and easy to tune I would recommend the RB V12 or the Novarossi NS12.
