Default New engine.

Looking for a new upgrade engine for my hpi truggy 4.6. Currently the stock motor is in it. Really looking for a bolt right in and go not really looking to change any other parts if anyone has any good ideas let me to.

How much are you spending and do you want another pullstart engine?

No need to spend that much really but the Novarossi.28 is a great engine and is around that price...available with pull and roto start. Another great engine for around half that price is the LRP.28.

Just buy a LRP 28..spending any more then $160.00 for a pullstart truggy engine would be a waste IMHO.......... the internal OWb do not like spinning fast and will just destroy the engine on anything much faster then a stock engine........In a monster truck you can get away with this for a bit, but a truggy is a whole different animal.....The internal OWB will literally chew up the insides of the engine ... SO if your looking for speed in a truggy or buggy you need to really upgrade to a starterbox if you want any osrt of reliable high performance.... Besides, once you have a starterbox you will never again even consider wanting a goofy doodle pullstart...Starterbox is so much less hassles and makes life much easier.....

First of all, "new engine" doesnt tell us much.
I know your budget is 300 and youre looking for a pullstart.
What are you going to do with the engine? Bash? Race?
