Default New engine

I have an HPI RS4 3 EVO and my old engine is runed and i want to start racing at my loacal track so i need a new engine.

I have heard that tracks allow only .12's and i have heard they allow .15's and .12's. which is true??
I would like to hear suggestions on goood engines i have around a $200 price range but if there is some amazing engine for more i can wait a few more weeks and get the money

Thanks

for 200 dollars, I would buy a new car. I did that. But, if you want to race with that car I would buy a wasp .12 se-ps (if you can find it anymore) discontinued on tower. Easy to tune, drop in and great engine speed.
An r40 is only $258 and you will only need about 200 on top of that if you use your old equipment.
