Are you drunk?..

Who cares if people ask the same question? It's a forum.. All forums are filled with stuff that are not interesting(or even annoying..) to different people. It's like TV.. So what do you do? Ignore it, of course...

I personally don't mind "what engine should I get?" posts all that much(normally...) Everybody's in a different situation.. A lot of these guys are newish. And when people do respsond occasionally Ihear something new too...

Sounds dumb I know, but the old saying, "if you don't have anything nice (or helpful, constructive, etc...) to say......................" really does seem the perfect maxim for internet forums...

<font class="Apple-style-span" size="4"><span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-size: 16px; -webkit-border-horizontal-spacing: 1px; -webkit-border-vertical-spacing: 1px;">whisper1984, hi and welcome to Rc Universe! Which engine should you get for your 8ight-t? Really Depends on what you are wanting to do. Race, Bash? I just got thru asking the same question on here and after about 2-3 days of research and getting peoples advice i decided to go with the Mach 427, its only $135 and a pretty good all around engine. Many would agree. Also you need to forgive or in this case ignore people like - we go hard in jersey -, he is not a typical repersentitive of this community, he just happens to know nothing about this subject so likes to be-little people to make himself feel like he has a set of balls, that and the fact that he is having personal issues coping with his recently diagnosed erectile dysfunction. Feel free to PM me with any question you may have about engines, or better yet use the search function and look for anything related this what engine or best engine under this thread, there is a lot of good info here on that. This question does need to be ask often due to the fact that there are new engines coming out all the time. I hope that you havent been scared away from the community, i see you are really new here. Look forward to seeing you post in the future.

Sorry if you feel that i am out of line or over reacting but i asked a simple question!, and wanted a simple answer not some one tring to prove a point and be disresptful and use Me as an example!!!

I am NOT"RETARDED" asYOU say,that is very terrible word for you to use because most people that are mentally challenged (hense what you call retarded) are born with a birth defect and have no choice of how they begin there life!!!

Also i guess the fact that i have 3 t-maxx, 1 revo 2 buggies, a hpi street car and 1 truggy has nothing to do with the cash i have invested either huh!!! sorry that the Truggy area is new to me if i would have known i would be disrestpeted i would not have turned to this frorum for advice!!!!!!!!!!



a pic of most of my r/c's incase jersy wants to say i'm lying!!!

Whisper it is my understanding that they turbo plugs have better compression and more power. plugs are mad expensive tho. I would say going turbo depends on the engine. If your going turbo on a .21 then yes its a good ideal, anything else then i would stay standard. The Mach 427 is a nice motor )

the mach 427 is what i am thinking about picking up for the time being considering the cost but i am thinking about picking up in the future when funding alows it the.........Trinity ExTech "II" Pre-Run "Full Modded" .24 Competition Truggy Engine (Turbo Plug)............ www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/cPath/1_23_79/products_id/29952 i just wasn't sure if i was willing to spend $300 on a motor if the extra money on a turbo engine was worth it lol.....

also does anyone know how complicated that particular motor is mounting to the losi 8ight-t chasis???? i'm already planning on picking up the

Imo the .24 is too much for the newer breed Truggy's....even the 1.0T is light and geared efficiently to Easily make Any jump a .28 can as long as your on the racing line and have the tune right......I would only hope that i am not included in your rant as you really have to see it from our side.....LITERALLY there are 3-4 posts with the EXACTsame questiong being asked Over and Over again...yes ill agree with Herr and the fact most of the time the situation is a little different....being it 1 may be a basher and looking for OUTRIGHTpower.....next might be a novice racer looking for a economical affordable race .21......but really if you looked at the last 2-3 pages of the Truggy and 1/8 Buggy thread's you would see what we are talking about.....blah....sorry if i came off as a jerk but like i said you have to somewhat see it from our side.
