Default HPI engine trade-in program

i was thinking about trading in my .21 for the s-25. would it be a substantial jump in power? or should i just save the $100 and invest in something else?

Well, in my humble opinion. The money would be well spent. This is just my opinion. The 25 has lots of power. It doesn't pump out 48.000rpm, so don't expect it. It does however do a good job of moving the Savage along at a rather brisk pace [>:]

My opinion is that its a great engine. It's based on the OFNA Force .25 and has a few imporvements on it. I have the Force on my Savage now and it kicks ass! Its a super wheelie machine. I run right next to all the hypers and Piccos. Its a rock solid engine that runs hard and cool plus holds a tune all day!! I love it. That being said, the S 25 should perform even better. In fact I have one (S-25)on the bench for a replacent should the Force 25 ever give out on me.

don't just do the motor exchange because you want more power...... Run the .21BB until it dies... abuse it!! run it hard!! then when it is finally dead.... send it in on the engine exchange program.... you at least get your money's worth then.....
