    os cv-r .18

    how is this engine? after hereing that traxxas got a new 3.3 ". 18 i beleave", it got me thinking. since trx engines are ok, when it comes time for me to upgrade my engine, how is the cv-r? i have a rustler with the stock .15 in it. how much run time do u get on a 75 cc tank"2.5 oz"? im getting about 12- 15 on one tank right now. i know this is goin a bit backwards, but some other options would be the cv .12, cv .15 and the cv-r .12. how are those engine and what are there run times on a 2.5 oz tank. top speed on all of them?


    any help will be greatly appreicated.

    the os cv-r line is great. a good combo of power/(rediculous)reliability. the 18 will give decent run time but not amazing. the 12 would have quite long run time i imagine.

    will it be worth the money to take my current engine "trx 2.5" and send it in to become modified will be worth the 100 bucks? or should i go with one of the cv-r engines.

    i herd the modification will greatly increase your run time, increse your power and it overall performance.

    but will you be able to ever run the freakin' thing or will you spend all you time tunning? if you want to run strong and keep running, go with an os.

    yea, that engine can be a pain in the u know what at times, expecaly in the cold wisconsin weather. im gonna upgrade my engine with in the year. i have been putting alot of money into my rusty lately. this is what has been goin on with it so far... car used is 75.00 with no radio, futaba radio, 50.00, replacement parts and starting equipment "fuel, glow igniter" 65.00, sheet of 1/8 inch t6 aluninum for front shock tower, 12.00 rechargeable conersion "used my airplane radio batt. pack, and 2 fire bird batt. packs to make 2 900 mah hump packs." 20.00

    still need to get body, paint mask"not to good with drawing" and 2-3 cans of paint. that ll be bout 41-46 dollars

    total project cost: 268.00

    so as you can see i realy dont want to get a engine right now, itll be hard on the wallet, expecally when im savin for a car and college. yea, that stuff is also important too. but i gatta say though, that 268 has been alot of fun with all the work i have been doing on it. it has been expensive, but its all part of the hobby. this hobby has conviced me that i want to go to college for mechanics of some sort, lookin at diesel or hvac"heating ventalating and air contitioning."
