Default i need a ~$200 engine for my MTX4R

hey guys,

i currently have 2 OS tg V1 engines and while they are good i just cannot keep up with the competition.

i went and had one of the modded and while it is 100% better it now tunes with the tank and i cannot get 2nd gear to hit consistently. at a full tank it will not engage, at less than 1/4 it engages when you take off.........

so i need a new engine.

any sugestions?

Nova 353

If you use an OS TG... and you arent in a <1hp spec class, then you'll get just what you want from one of these.

For example, an OS TG in a Capricorn is a beast to get to change as the 2 speed is so small.

Also ensure the greater mass of the two speed shoe is on th trailing edge of the direction of rotation.

If you really want it to last a while, grab a spare conrod and change it after run-in.
