Default nitro engine for a ft ntc3

im looking into getting a ft nitro tc3. as for the motor i was looking at a O.S. .18 the cr-v (p) i think it is, the one that says its a direct fit for it, also why is that one so cheap compared to others that are smaller. and another q. whats the best fuel to run in a os engine.

I just thought it was odd that you didn't ask these quesitions where you work.

if your going to get a .18 it wont be legal for racing, unless some kind of outlaw class allows it.

if you want an os and want to race, then go for the .12tz...

best fuel I've found so far is wildcat eliminator and that should go for any brand of engine..

the cvr is cheaper because its not up to par with for instance the os tz line..

get the .18cvr then, but remember its going to be hard to control.

the better choice would be to get the .12tz wich is plenty fast, plus its legal for racing if later on you decide to do so.
