Default LRP .12 RACE vs STS .12 D3R IFMAR

I'm going to be getting one of these motors very soon for my gpx4. from each brands websites they seem very similar(even in the way they look?)
is one better or worse than the other. price wise there isn't a differnece. hopefully you guys can help me out.
thanks.

I havent seen a LRP in action yet. But it seems to be a good Picco based engine. I'd suggest the OS TZ which is just around the price range of these two engines you have mentioned. Plus the availability and price of the engine parts is awesome...

Try to get the TZ overseas then... I usually pay $185 for mine shipped (www.rc-toro.com). But someone mentioned they even got a cheaper price at rc-champ.co.jp... Hope this helps.

On another note, some people consider STS engines to be lottery tickets, one in a million comes out good. So between those to, go with the LRP.
