    which motor?

    Hey guys, I was just wondering what a good upgrade would be from the 3.3 I was thinking about an OS, but I don't know which one is the fastest. Any help is always appreciated, thanks in advance.

    The issue here is most engines are not direct drop ins for our platform. I do believe the OS .21TM is a drop in and should give you a little more power than 3.3. I had an OS .21VZ-R turbo in my Rusty at one point but I had to do a lot of modification to get it to fit. Another problem is having to much power, you start running these .21 or bigger engines that were designed for 1/8th scale platforms and it will cause a plethora of issues on our trucks. Also a lot of these engines have to be bump started so be prepared for that.

    I was thinking about the .21, but I haven't decided yet.

    Okay. Yeah I'm pretty sure that OS .21TM is a direct drop in. The only thing you'll need to find is a header and new exhaust pipe.

    I was thinking about doing a stinger exhaust, but once again I still haven't decided. Right now I'm just looking at my options for when my 3.3 goes out.
