That GRP motor is a beast in a buggy, but you will not find parts for it.

It is a screamer, just make sure it isn't your only option.

Good luck if you trade it, get something nice for it!

good for buggy and truggy, the grp is really good for truggy, i have found a novarossi carb works better than the grp carb, and the grp works better on the nova motors.

Well I have a GRP tuned .21 engine that I got new and it runs great in my buggy and my truggy.

Only downside is that its almost impossible to get parts for.

ninja engines and the new TQ engines are the same as the grp .21, amain carries them or go to TQ engine thread and find a salesman for them. but if you need a piston for a grp .28, IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND. i have a brand new grp .28 that needs a piston and cant find one anywhere!

Thanks dude... That's interesting, I had given up on an old GRP .21. Maybe I will find it at the bottom of the box and give it a run through...

Appreciated!

the new ninjas are NOT the same.... the JX ones are OS based... the GRP based ones were two versions ago (i believe there was one in between the two)
