Ok? Dont be rude please.

I am looking for the Sirio or the Mega ZX12 DSIII. its about the same price, any thoughts about it? Dont know whats the top speed of those engines.
So, back with two feet on the planet.
64, like Scott said is the max. (108 kmh, is what I've seen as the Max, which is 67 mph)

Get any of the already mentioned engines, take your car to the track, and have some fun...
If you really only are in for the looks and like the orange ZX engine, why didn't you buy a Serpent 733 then, even more orange flavoured!..

Also look at R&B engines, if you are looking for orange!....

Ok, so I can drive that speed no question about it.

Just need to know if those engines can reach 80-90, cause i will get bored if it is slower than that.

So what engine can you recommend? Cause I only heard about this Sirio XXX V and the Mega ZX12 DSII. Also there is already a ZX12 DSIII out.
i admit i do not know much abt EP but i do not think i have seen EPs going at 80-90mph during real world racing...

you sure you drive pro at electric???

Wow, 67mph for a sedan - pretty impressive! Those things have improved since I ran one.
I'm now racing 8th scale and with all the downforce on our cars the top-speed is nearly the same.
So for the thread starter: Be advised that you will get bored with a nitro sedan - You mentioned that you are used to speeds in the 80 to 90 mph range...

Noel hasn't been doing this long but has inhaled too many nitro fumes and is hallucinating. If he wants speeds like that, why not just get an 1/8th scale car, one of those very high-end modded .21s, and gear it to the moon. The speeds he is looking for is more obtainable with an 1/8ths scale more than a 1/10th scale sedan and the 1/8th scale can the abuse of running that hard better because it is designed for higher speeds/more powerful engines.

Ok, so looking at the 353 09, it has 42800 RPM + or -
FYI JLock I am currently driving my TA05 V2, with mamba max 9000kv motor with a 2S and sometimes 3S lipo.

at 2s Lipo it goes like 70-75mph.
And at 3S it goes 85-90mph.

I drive this at a very large track, maybe 6-8 times as big as the track where you currently race.

I know that those speeds are not used to competition, but you know I want it that way. As much as i want that speed, I also want the looks.

Yeah its so exciting! Thats why I wanna try it, even though my TA05 runs so smooth and fast with the mamba 9000. Love it!!!!

But when the battery was low im pissed off, I got 3 lipo's but, I tell you in continues run, it will not last an hour.

Thats why I wanna try nitro's because you will just put in gas. nyahahaha and race all day long!

Yeah have that in mind, but I presume that 1 pack is long enough since it only powers the receiver right? Unlike in electric, the motor will drain a 5000mah packs for 15min. nyaahahah

Also..guys dont you think that they are now lovin the S733?
I've read the post and they love it, what can you say about that?

Is it any better than the NT1?
