Have you figured out what you are going with power plant wise? Just wanted to throw something else out there on engines. You have to have the correct pipe in order to get the best performance out of your engine. The pipe is what makes all your dollars work on that engine.

Romas are beast! There really isnít much that will touch this engine in a GT. I hope you can find the traction! Iíd get the recommended Pipe and header for the Roma. I was hesitant at first with doing this due to cost but man did it make the difference with my 35 Plus 21 Tuned. The right pipe makes all the difference. Here is the link to find the Pipe/header combo.

before everything make sure you know the rules and regulations of the track you will be running. are you going to take part in a series. if they have a limitation you may end up getting a motor you can not race.

here the class we run is controlled so only listed equipment can be ran on the cars. we do not want people buying very expensive stuff or no way of obtaining and ruining the fun.

at the moment we run Xceed .21 buggy engines. we will later add the nova .21 or the .28 5P engines to the list. so people have a list of accepted items they can use on the cars.

I would suggest a cheap engine to run and get used to your car also later you can make this engine your rain motor.

I tried to point this out a while ago and then came to the conclusion he is building a rocket ship lol. I dont htink he is looking for track time. BTW those Novarossi 21 5 ports are great. I ran one at Timezone this year and it was stout! $199.99 for RPM to the moon

Yep, exactly. No track racing at the moment. I just want pure performance and all out speed. I may decide to detune it later for track use..

I have a question about savox servos, i have read a lot of comments about them being noisy, is this true? Even if they are cheaper and not going to perform as well, i'd rather just spend the money once on high quality stuff like futaba servos or ko propo.

Two of those are all you really need. There's no reason to spend more.
They're quite, very quick and they have very high resolution (easier to drive precise with).

Digital servos in general are noisy, but Savox's are definitely some of the loudest. The more money you spend on servo's, generally the better they get. I've heard great things about the Radio Post servos, I just have a hard time justifying spending more than $100 a servo, especially after seeing what the Savox's are capable of. If you want to spend big money check out Savox's High Voltage Brushless line. I'd do the SB-2274SG for steering and the SB-2271SG for throttle/brake. Run 'em on 2S Li-Po, oh yeah baby!

Yea C, i saw those and kind of read up on them. I was comparing them to ko propos and futabas. Now, radiopost too.

Once you try the radiopost servos then you'll know why so many switched to them.

Radioposts are starting to look very appealing.
