engine advice

Post by troystr68 » Wed Oct 03, 2007 11:46 pm

I am planning a complete rebuild of my Nitro TC3 this winter and I want to know what is the fastest most powerful motor I can get for it. NOW here is the catch, I wanna pull start side exhaust not a bumpstart rear exhaust. with that said I am also researching a new exhaust, I don't race in a circuit so I don't care if its an outlaw set up. the whole car is gonna be aluminum and titanium when I am done. Just like my Clod. it has a AE .15 in it now and it really screams!!!!!! but hey it has to be over kill like my clod or I won't be happy. Let me know what what you know. Thanks!

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: Check out the XTM engines. I don't know if they've got anything in a pull-start side exhaust, but they're good little engines. 132NHAF put an .18 in his MT and loves it.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Man, I've been gone so long you forgot what engines I'm running. :shock: I put the XTM in my MAXX when I had it, I'm still running the little cheap CVX15 in my MT.

But once I get the bug again, I'll be putting an XTM in my MT too. :D

What Halgar said about me liking them is true. They make many different engines, but they all seem to perform the same way....Reliably. I loved the set it and fortet it way this engine ran and the insane power it made with just the .18. The best part is that they are reasonably priced.

Some people just aren't talented enough to drive a Nitro truck. That's why they make three legged Clods... :twisted:

My clods may be on their "last" legs, but rest assured, they still have all of them! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
