Default Rossi .53 engine


Generally speaking, the Rossi engines are very powerful, but have to turn high rpm to do it. And they are mostly heavier than other engines of the same displacement.

In other words, the Rossi 53 will drag your 40 stick, if propped right, out of sight in a heartbeat. But vertical? You might not like it. The Rossi just wants to go fast.

If you already have the Rossi, bolt it on and go. But on the Stick I think you'll be happier with a lighter engine.
