    savage X RTR isn't bad the F4.6 is probably one of the easier engines to tune that are RTR that I've had.

    Nexx 8T has a F .32 engine in it (same engine manufacturer as the F4.6's). Can't say anything about that particular model, but I have the 1st generation that it is based on and its tough.
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    all engines are easy to tune, you just have to know HOW to tune

    RE: What's a good nitro rc truck thats easy to tune?

    Any nitro engine can be problematic and any can be relatively easy. I've seen various theoretically identical engines that behaved radically differently, every nitro engine has its own character. If you want an easy time of tuning, it's best to avoid pullstarts/rotostarts and use a sealed backplate and starter box for starting. I've never come across a nitro engine that I would describe as 'easy to tune', and I certainly do know how to do it. I just find it hard to find the patience for it these days. I guess it all depends on your definition of easy. Nitro in general is just too much messing around for me these days, every day I thank the RC gods for Brushless, Lipo and FHSS. I still have a few gassers, but I no longer have any nitros at all.
