Default Nitro Eng for Serpent 966

What would be the better choice of Engine out of these two?


Precirotate Racing PR21B 5 Port (is this an off road only)?


or


RB Classico 10


Also what is the difference between off road and on road engines?
could I use an off road in this serpent?

Thanks

Yes that first one is an offroad engine. You could use it but an onroad engine will give you more power. Onroad engines have much more timing in them for high rpm HP.

The RB is excellent. Hard to beat for the price.

You race 8th scale 4wd? If so where? Doesn't seem to be many tracks for onroad in the northeast. I think there's one in CT right?

Nova Engines are the best and offer many choices

N215T
Kangaroo
35 Plus
Collari
Flash Special

Just pick the engine that matches your budget

Well Due to the budget I went with the RB Classico 10. It had the most ports for the lowest price and was actually an on road engine from A main. Would rather have went with the Nova def or a Sirio.

Should be in within a couple days, I can't wait! Here is a pic of my 966 so far. Its getting a bit cooler in the Northeast.
