Based on my experience: I use the following motors in my truggies:

JPX 21
JPX 28
LRP 28 Spec 3

All three run like raped apes in a truggy. Best two would probably be the JPX motors, so buy one and send it to AB Mods to get the most out of it.

I've see a Jammin X2 crt with an RB concept TM928 last week-end at the race track, and OMFG[X(][X(][X(]this engine is a brutal beast.
It was more, and when i say more, it's MOREEEEEEEEEEEEEE powerfull that a full mod Novarossi 528XR.
The guys run it at 202*-215* range and it was stupidly fast, can keep the front wheel on the groud. He have pair it with an JP-4 pipe, and believe me, this combo is killer

I've a good deal on a brand new RB TM928, and i think to put that in my MBX6T.

Actually learning to drive makes you faster than buying a new motor.

It never ceases to amaze me how lame your suggestions are! I would prefer to see the Traxxas Pro 15. Now that is Stupid Fly!!

I'm so angry right now!

If that isn't the dumbest thing I have EVER read on this site then it has to at least be in the top two! Are you sure you wouldn't rather have a .12 from Traxxas? How did you get the pro 15 to fit into your RCBatmobile from Radio Shack anyway? Does your mommy know you are playing with the family computer when you should be doing your remedial math homework?
Ihave a truggy and Ithink Iwill try the LRP28 Spec3because Ihave seen thosego pretty resonable on E-Bay.Thanks Dittch

Here is your only post that wasnt 100% aimed at insulting someone.

"Dittch: I see your point, however, I wish you would do some more research. I own a Nitro Sport and swapped out the stock Pro 15 for the Jato engine. It was very simple. In other words...way over your head. Clearly you haven't done any homework on this front.

I also put the Jato chassis on my Nitro Sport - It was awesome!

Now please accept this reply as a lesson and don't question me!"

How in the world will you say the engines mentioned are crap when you have a little pro.15 in a TRAXXAS beginner car?!

Goodbye bjonaiti, that might be your last post.

Most powerful engine money can buy is a JPX/Picco .28 with a stage 3 mod by Supertib or ABmods. 2.4-2.7hp in the dyno's depending on what you want. You wont beat that with anything else there period.

How about a GRP .28 Tuned? The supplies of them are just about done but they are sweet.
