Out of those choices I would go with either the LRP or the Picco P3 (Trinity's engine is a Picco 28 P3)

The Mach 427 is pretty much the same engine as the one that came with the truck.

Axial's are good too if you get the 28RR but...
IMO the Picco or LRP would be better. The Picco has more low end punch...and the LRP has a little bit more top end.

the LRP is a great engine for the big boy, but if your on a budget go with the axial .28...

The R&B TM928 is one of the most (if not, the most) powerfull plant you can get for your car.

That will be a decent pipe for the LRP.

Im running a Go .28 at the moment, for around 220au these are awsome, IMO its quicker than my LRP spec3 28. Loads of torque make it a great MT engine.

I am pretty sure about going with the lrp. Is there anything i have to do to make the spin start from my lst work on the motor. Thanks

Also What is the deal with starter boxes. It seems alot simpler to me if you stall to just use the spin start. Is the any advantages to the starter box.

The LRP .28 motors are a great racing engine, they are very durable and go very hard... i doubt you will be sorry!
