Default what engine for my truggy

i cant fo the life of me decide on what engine to run and time keps ticking by. Money is not an issue here. I want balls to the wall power and good fuel economy. I gfigured this would be the best place to ask.

Novarossi Plus 21-5KT

Novarossi Plus 2 367

Picco P7R Evo 2

Jammin JPX .21

Novarossi S821B


guess we cant make polls on here. If you would like to duggest something that is not up there then by all means do so.

JP B5
AxeRossi Cobra - very strong performing motor ,nice linear power band.
Axe Rossi Mamba - awesome value for money and performance.
From what you mentioned the Novarossi Plus 21-5KT is awesome.

also depends on what type of track you run on.

im not to fond of the axe rossis, ive seen to many of them break and not run good, so i try to stay away from them. Im currently running a Highly modified Novarossi T21BF and im getting walked away from by a S821B, 21-5, and a Sirio Kanai. this motor currently passes Vspecs, WS7s, and other engines of that caliber. im looking for something insane here. bottom is is something id like but dont need near as much as i do mid and top end. the back stretch on this track soaks up top end.

ive seen the stock vspec and the OS Speed Vspec on the xdyno. Not much of a power increase at all. Vspecs are also notorious for breaking rods.

Thats sad to hear ,we have had no hassles at all with exception of early versions had a very sensitive carb.The distributor replaced all carbs free of charge though.

I have tryed the V-spec .21 and it is super nice to run in my STR and i am now running my backup engine which is the P7R EVO and the thing pulls very hard and isnt choppy. I know the P7R pulls hard in the CRT for one of the other guys in my group can attest to it.

The PICCO P3 .28 motor will be the best for your Jammin CRT Truggy, it has tons of power and it is priced low just like the JL's on the .12 category.

Go techs are knockoff novarossis. Im not really into knockoff engines as id like to buy the real thing as i know the reliability is there as long as the endurance. Nice massive mods plug though. Ill be using AB Mods myself. www.abmods.com
