Default New engine needed

Hi there,

Seems my fs12lt in my tamiya tg10 has died
So looking for a new engine. Gonna be also getting hold of a 2 speed transmission for it, just wondering what engine you guy's would recommended.

also anyone know if they came with ballrace bearings as standard. got it in pieces at the mo and thinking of upgrading, just can't remember if it had plastic or ballrace bearings when i built it.

cheers

Hi,

It depends on wath you want and most important wath you want to spend!

If you want to spend as much as you can I would defenitly recommend a JP, but this is a highly competitive engine, and is expensive.

If you wnat to have a relaible engine, and not as expensive, I would go for a Omega (picco).
Those engines are fast and relaible.

But, like I said, make up you're mind and deside wath you want, and how much you can spend!

also would there be anything I would need to upgrade in order for the car to handle the new found power or are they fairly strong as standard???

cool, I'll contact the UK distributer and see about prices and availability.
also seen on tamiyantro.com that a epic .18 will also fit and provides insane amounts of power
gonna have to compare the 2!!!
