Default looking for new motor for RC10GT

I'm looking for a new engine for my RC10GT. I've been running O.S. engines for about 3 years now, and I want something with a little more power that isn't too much overboard. I've ownwd both the .12CV and .15CV and the CV-R's. Just want something more bang for the buck. Any ideas?

Default More engine

I dont really know why you would need more power in a GT but you could try the MT-12. Its probably not much more than the CVR but its a much better engine and will last a long time.

Is the Mt-12 more powerful then the .12 cv-r or is just about the same.

What about these new fantom 03' motors? Are they any good and do they hold up well?

you know personally I havent been to much impressed with the fantom engines, I have not owned one but have raced with many and I always hung with them in the striaghts with my cv-r.

I have ran both and the o.s. .12 cv-r just runs better and harder. I also noticed that the AE .15 got quite hot even when I had it tuned rich and this was with fuel that had 18% oil.
