    RE: what is the biggest and best engine for hpi savage 25

    I dont think the collari .30 is the biggest but the collari has 3.5 hp at 36 000 rpm why would you want more than that you would be flipping over all day with any thing more you flip over enough with the collari hope i helped.

    "flip" = wheelie and flip over on itself.

    Flipping from massive wheelie power and uncontrollable power is not good.

    Gearing is limited, and without alot of gearing options for massive power you speak of, then top speed is limited.

    BIGGER engine = faster accel and no top speed gains....some top speed gains will come when gears are swapped, but it is limited.

    well then i guess i will get the three speed tranny and machine some higher end gears then get the cen 4.6 because my whole question was if the engine would fit or not and what mods i would need

    You haven't done much actual looking then.... You may as well be looking for bigfoot (not the MT either).

    ONCE YOU GET TO 5 HP GENERALY THE THE STROKE GETS LONGER AND YOU MIGHT NOT THE 40000 RPM'S . YOU MIGHT HAVE TO RELY ON GEARING & TIRE SIZE.

    The cen .46 ? the one that comes stock in the genesis? It's big and heavy I don't think it'll fit at all. I just barelly squeezed the collari in there. if my savage had wings I think it'd fly. how far you want to jump?

    too tell you the truth i think the .25 is pretty dam good looking to get another after i blew mine but let me tell you what its been through slammed into a pole 30mph broke steering and bent front left plate fixed then hit a water hazard and flipped it over completly submerged in water and whats worse i hit the gas when it was didnt know it yet but when it bogged i knew anyway cleaned it out by flushing with wd then nitro then oil then nitro and it ran alright though it had problems later found crack in crank but new motor cheaper so ran it finally after over a half gallon ran with a cracked crankshaft (can see when pull backplate off and look where pin fits into crank and piston rod ya right there) its was done being able now to move the connecting rod back and forth over the crack it is time to search but i think im just going to get another cuss thats pretty bad ass to survive that and it will still sometimes fire lol prob put new internals in and be fine but can get motor for less then a hundred so i just ran it ya know anyway thats my two cents hey anyone know about the sh .28 might get that too dont know much so does will the clutch system from my blown .25 fit on the .28 or will i have to go all new
