Default New Orion Baja Motor for Losi Mini-T

I posted this in the electric forum on accident but anyway I dont know how many have seen this but Orion is realeasing a Baja Modified motor for the Losi Mini-T. There isnt a lot of info but there is some at http://www.wildhobbies.com/news/defa...articleid=1052 If there already making motors for this thing and its not out yet I cant wait to see what other hop ups other companies will come out with.

Wow, I guess either no one is really interested or its old news but it seems cool to me that they are already designing hop ups for the Mini-T...later

Its a nice thing that they are producing upgrades already but, you cant add them on till they start selling the trucks.

True but they will start selling them soon. Some sites that have them for pre order say sometime this month. I was just saying people might be interested in hop ups for it. I thought it was pretty cool since I am looking into getting one.

No i dont think it will be all that great if it was nitro. Yeah it would be cool to have a mini nitro but it would never do as well saleswise as the electric. I also dont think it would work all that great. Anyway it wouldnt sell because the reason a lot of people are going to buy this is to have something they have to use indooes when its raining or hailing, bad weather or whatever but on those nice days where they dont feel like dealing with their fuel and pullstarts they can just stick a battery in the thing and go. Well thats atleast the reason i want to get it but I dont know maybe im wrong maybe a nitro would work but what kind of nitro engine can you get that small to fit in that chassis?

for an engine you could use a Norvel .061,.074 or even a .09 with a modified head.
