    2.67cc vertex engine?

    i have a few questions about this engine:

    what is the fuel consumption on this engine?

    How loud would you say it is?

    Would it consume less fuel if i bought the lightning str, or shockwave?

    fuel useage will basically be the same.

    most nitro motors this size are not terribly loud. i mean, you dont want to run them late at night, but its not any louder than a weedwacker.

    not as loud as a weedwacker. and much higher pitched sounding.
    in this vid, the surroundings add some echo, but you get the idea

    offroad is more fun! a car can only be run in the street(if the traffic is really low) and in empty parking lots. offroad can be run anywhere.

    i dont think there is a huge difference in fuel use, if any.

    okay thanks. the shockwave is a buggy, so it would still do fine in grass?
