Wayne, welcome to the truggy section :)

There are two sides to this debate from what ive read.

One side will preach the ways of the .21 engine such as the S7II for example..well below your £200 limit. Youll have better fuel economy with a .21 but not as much bottom end torque as say a .28

Then you have the .28+ crew who rave about the likes of the OS.30 and the 528. Big, fuel guzzling monstors of torque.

In all honesty your best bet is to ask at your local track, wait for more replies here and see what the gernal concensious is :)

Hope that helped somehow:)

hello
cheers for the reply.i think i may opt for the .21 engine and trade the 28 torque for fuel economy.i was just a bit worried the .21 would wear quicker having to run a slighty heavier vehicle than a 1/8 buggy
cheers bye

ive had a thought...scary i know!

if the track you race on has alot of varying height jumps..such as the American 'supercross' style tracks..youll probably need a bigger engine such as the .28 due to the torque..youll need that torque to get you up the jumps!

if your track is reletively flat like swindon where i race you probably wont need the torque as much.

it also depends on surface i guess...some surfaces are high traction and therefore require more power to get you going along.

its just a thought but i hope it helps :)

hello
well i went opposite to what i said and got a novarossi 28 but it was a pull start version so gotta get a backplate now as it wont go in with pullstart on.
anyway i had a picco 26 which i have just run in on the local car park and tested the truggy and so far its looking good the steering is superb but me shocks am a little soft though and im gettin a little front tyre ballooning.ill see how it goes down the track tomoz
cheers byeeee

And CRT is only slightly heavier than the X1-CR and lighter than "some" buggies so I've heard
I am still undecided what to use in my CRT, BCRog is screaming OS, some owners are punting RB S7-II, so I am still undecided
