I would suggest a Nitro 4-tec i have a 3.3 in mine and it freaking rips i only bash in the school parking lot i run rubbers on it and i use jack the gripper for some traction. I also ran foam tires but they chunk a lot. I would recomend a nitro 4-tec 3.3

61mph the fastest speed I ever recorded on my 4 tec 3.3 stock gearing and 30% nitro

I always recomend the 4tec parts are available almost at any hobbyshop. I had it for 2 years and the only part I had to replace so far is the rear belt, a rear hub carrier which I replaced with aluminium. Then again I never crash since I run it on a big empty lot. With the stock body it will sometimes catch air under the car and flip a few times in the air... It keeps running. I can say I have over 5 gal. on the engine and still runs good.

I never had a CEN so cant really say anything about it.
