Default Fuel economy??

Ok so I had my sights on getting the hyper 7 with .21 and 8 port engine, but I found the Ofna mbx comp that has .26 engine. Now I'm kind of confused as to which one I should get. It will be a bashing buggy only

So my question is, will the fuel economy of the .26 be considerably worse than the .21 How is the .26 fuel economy in comparison to a .28
Thanks!

The .26 vs the .21 will be like comparing a 20mpg car to a 35mpg can and the same for the .28 vs the .26.

And don't even bother with the .28, it is just too much power even for a basher.

I would not go bigger than the .26.

So a .26 is a gas guzzler too, huh?
Is there a noticeable difference between the .21 8 port vs the .21 3 port?

If your bashing Fuel economy should not be an issue.. an 8 port is going to get worse mileage then the 3 port..

It depends on the engines being compared. An OS V-Spec, which is a 3 port, will out perform that Hyper .21 in almost every way.. IE more info is needed.

With this mentioned I wonder why you want fuel economy. As a basher you want all the power and speed you can.....
