    Any good 25-28 engines out there?

    I need a new engine. Was running a crapworks modded $400 Picco P3, i must have received te runt of the litter...either way the engine internally imploded. Crank shaft shattered and took out the rear ceramic bearing, rod, piston, and sleeve. Now i need a new engine . Any suggestions?

    Unbelievable!! Lots of hype for sure....



    I still come by here quite a bit. I just don't have much to add to the conversation. I think they call that trolling......

    Thats the ticket right there! RB Power is awesome and the price is killer not to mention tuning is a breeze and stays tuned!!!

    I once had an RB 728; it drank quite a bit of fuel. Anyone have any experience with the OS .30vg?

    Canon HD Supermaxx Video First attempt

    Part 2


    I sound horrible... i just put 2 of my dogs down to sleep; so my voice sounds nasally, hell i couldn't even remember the names of parts in this vid. I'm not sure why you tube broke my video up in to two sections, this was originaly one 18min long vid. ALso the quality is supposed to be 1080p not sure why youtube only allows us to view it in 720p. Anyone know why? this is my first video with this camcorder

    You might be able to shave one weight by taking the servo and fuel tank mount of and using just a servo mount.


    For an engine defiantly the rb.28. I ran one in my truck with a mono,setbacks, and 4 shocks and certain times would pull up the ft wheels a little bit. Super powerful. I had a sportwerks.26 after that. No comparison. I honestly think that was the best engine I ever had. Only had like 4-5 though.
    Very easy to tune. But does eat some gas

    Tom wolf had a 528 novarossi in his razor and it threw that truck around like a rag doll. There's videos on YouTube. I think we all already saw those.

    Yea those are HPI mounts. You have to mod the mount a little for the Nova .28 to fit but it doesn’t take too much effort. Just takes a little milling to get the fat crankcase to fit well. I have also done the same to the Ofna 51530 mount to fit the Nova in a Maxx.
