that engine is a .21 and won't fit without work.. get the .12 version.. and that tz 18 is a bit on the side of over kill.. 2.3hp and a bit over 3lb car

A healthy .21 will present challenges to a 1/8 car.... It will absolutley turn a smaller 1/10 car into a sled. Very few 1/10 cars manage with a .21 motor (the Schumacher Fusion comes to mind, but that was designed for a .21, and it is at the edge of control...and it is not the norm).

The .12 looks good to me, especially with a max rpm of 45,000.

I don't want the .21 i thought it was the small block but i plan on putting the motor in a nitro tc3.

Is the .12 better than the 0.S tz or not.
