read around the nitro engine section. Pretty much any .21 size engine should do. You just have to pick a winner! My vote goes for a Werks B2 or Fusion X3. Neither will break the bank and both will do you right

lol youll probably go faster with a .21, basically most engines bigger then .25 are a waste and just gazle gas, most are just heaps of crap RTR engines, put something race wise in it even a low end race engine even if your bashing it.

Any quality race .21 will run harder, stronger and faster than a rtr engine. A d in a buggy .21 is the limit of whats legal (if you ever end up at the track) If you want to go faster go up 1-2 teeth on the cb or down 2 teeth on the spur gear.
