Default MGT Engine Replacement...

Has anyone ditched the TTR 21 in favor of another motor yet??? I decided to add the MGT to my ever growing collection and while I love the truck, it needs more power... I was expecting wheelies and I didn't get any... Has anyone gotten the front wheels willingly and consistently off the ground yet??? I was contemplating a WASP 26 any thoughts???

Not the wasp man. I'd recommend the dynamite mach .26 or the xtm 24.7. Those 2 are like the same engine but the reliability is great!

What's the dripe with the Wasp? Isn't it supposed to be the same as the Picco? I want front wheel pulling power... If the 2.5 Maxx can pull the wheels so should the MGT... Granted I do have the Imex Jumbo's on it but they are a smaller diameter which effectively raised my gearing...

MGT was designed NOT to pull wheelies, its bad for handling, bad for speed, bad for acceleration, just plain bad, lock up the rear springs and stick a weight on the back and it'll wheelie as much as you like. Or just buy a mad force.

Speed is not an issue, my NTC3 with a JP Novarossi is built for speed... My MT's are for pure bashing... Nothing is made to wheelie, put torque in anything and it'll wheelie... My 79 F150 on 35" M-T's wheelies... It's a sight to see...

I have a Sirio 27 in mine and it is great. Also have a RB WS7II for backup
that I will be trying out next weekend and see how it goes.
