In a 26" mono I would go with the .12 to .15, an .18 will fit but may be a bit to Fast for that hull, which will cause you to spend more time Retrieving it than Driving It.

Ihave a blackjack 26SS nitro. It runs a .18 dynamite engine. You can find the engine really anywhere like http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...engine-PRB0200

or

http://www.funrcboats.com/ProductInf...ductid=PRB0200

It runs very well.Your hull can handle this engine. Irun it every weekend. Have fun! Iam currently beginnig to build a Mean Machine hull with a dynamite .32 nitro engine. SHould be even faster. Hope this helps.
