Default RE: some help on engine choices for crt pro kit

several points:

1. if you are planning to use the hitec for steering, FORGET IT! for as long as i have been racing, off-road application will best benefit something comparable to the airtronics 94359z!

2. as far as motor, it depends on the track. i personally use on my crt a Maxy modified P5 for short, technical tracks. for fast tracks, i use a 421B or i am trying to get the new PLUS35 offroad. the 528 has plenty of power, but not enough RPM's. we get better performance out of the .21's than anything else!

3. my opinion, don't waste your money on cleaners. if you have access, use Simple Green. it works excellent, it doesn't make your plastic opaque, and it is biodegradable

these are just my recommendations that have worked for myself as well as many of the racers where i run. everybody has there personal preferences and brands they like to use. i think that if you spec out what i listed and can obtain it through other brands that you like to use, you will be very satisfied with the end result and see yourself at the podium!!

I also think the Hitec 5925 is not strong enough to go on the steering, not to mention the 565. Personally, I use a 5925 for gas/brake and a Thunder Tiger ds1013 servo (who knows who distributes these in the US - see Ebay Germany auction # 7396945223) for the steering - strongest and fastest of all, beat my Hitec 5945. If you want a Hitec for the steering, take the 5945, but the Thunder Tiger ds1013 is faster and stronger.

I would also buy more different diff fluids to experiment with.

Have you thought about picking up a Z brace for the chassis ? and maybe a cnc one piece motor mount?

I feel I need to correct a common misconception of the Novarossi 528 and RB928. These engines rev like their .21 brothers, peak rpm is about the same and the way in which they rev isn't by any means lazy, they rip from the start all the way to their respective peaks. It's the thing that got everyone talking about it when it was released. The 528 in particular is about the only engine that you can believe the hipe about. I've found the 928 a little more drivable and easier on the fuel.

Ultimately which engine you get needs to be dictated by the depth of your pockets, skill level, types of track you race at and in the case of these two, IMO, your tuning experience, cause if your skilz aren't together you'll likely to have a nightmare with them. They are true race engines.

I just broke in a 528 and it is CRAZY powerful! This is the first car engine that I have owned, I fly planes too, and can not say enough positive things about it. I didn't have any trouble tuning it but my experience with aircraft engines might have influenced that. Mine is in a CRT and using the stock gearing, so the top end is not as high as it could be, but I can't imagine needing anymore! Maybe on a huge track, but the shear torque this mill puts out is addictive on many levels! I have not measured fuel times in a race yet but I get about nine minutes on a 150 mL tank so far. I agree that the Novarossi 528 lives up to its hype, and then some!
