Default Best pull-start engine?

I posted this in the nitro forum but didn't get any replies...
I wanted to get a new motor for my car and wanted to know what you guys think is the best one? It can be any size, but must have a slide carb, preferably one that will fit on a NTC3... Any suggestions?

Depends on what your track allows. You may want to look at the new OS .18 TZ. It's supposed to be the baddest outlay on the block, and can be had with a pullstart for around $210

the epic .18 supposedly has 1.8hp

its got slide carb and pullstart and can be had for around $140, downside is that its side exhaust, so if u have the team kit then you'll need to buy side exhaust manifold and pipe.

the .18tz looks nice but i cant find a hp claim to it.

i've read 1.6-2.25 for the tz. i'm debating weather its worth the extra 90 for the tz over the cv-r

Any OS engine is good. I currently have a .12 CV-R pullstart in my Nitro TC3 regular team (not factory team), and I hold my own on the track. The one I have is rotary carb, but I think you can get it with a slide carb. I was debating getting the .18 to have as a "fun" engine and keep the .12 as a "race" engine

I was wondering if a rear exhaust pull start engine fits in a Nitro TC3....I was thinking of going rear exhaust one day, but I really don't want a starter box (yes, I don't mind yanking on a pull start, rare I know)

I have the same thing in my NTC3, an O.S. .12 CV-R, but I installed the optional turbo head thats available on towerhobbies, and it huals.
