Ok I'm considering getting one of these and wonder what engine is everyone putting in there in terms of size?

Would a .21 engine be sufficient enough to power this car or is it only .28 engines?

Speed wise how does it compare to its slight smaller counter part 8th scale?

All of the Ofna and Nitrohouse guys are running the Picco P9 on-road racing engines, with the Ofna 086 pipe. Some are switching pipes, but the engine must be the same. We are running it like a spec class...

Another local put a Ninja buggy engine in his and he is very pleased...

.28 would be great for smaller tracks for more bottom end, but for larger tracks the .21 would be best. Look for a Novarossi 35plus21 tuned engine.

After seeing a C6BBT with matching pipe in a DM-1, I will have to change my opinion on engine choice from novarossi 35+21 to the C6BBT w/ 2045 pipe. Its a little pricey but sometimes its worth it.

I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this engine .28RR spec 1
I know this sounds dumb but I am a way new to nitro cars I just bought a DM One and need to find an engine to go into the car. I am not really going to be racing the car or anything like that but I do want it to be fast for the money I am spending on this project. Just for the car and Radio I am at $841.68 So if someone could help me make a decision on the engine for this car I would really appreciate it..

P.S. as long as I don't go to much over $1000.00 I don't care what the cost of the engine as long as its a good one.. thanks very much

The Axial .28 RR Series 1 motrs are fantastic. I run a .28 R Series 1 in my Latemodel and have loads of power and they aren't too pricey either. Take the time to break it in per the manual and use the factory settings. It will take a while, probably 7 - 9 tanks. Idle the first 1 or 2 then start in small figure 8's and as the heat in the engine stabilizes around 225 start leaning itout while maintaining temperature. DON'T GO BELOW 2-1/2 TURNS FROM BOTTOM on this engine. By the way, this engine does like to run a little fat on the settings and without the carb inserts.

Hello guys I'm fairly new to the forum and would like some advice on engines.


From what I can see the Picco engine, P3, P9, not sure which
the OS engine and the RC C6BBT are the favorites.

I am looking for my new OFna DM1 Pro. I have the RTR but want to change the engine. Which engine and will it just swap right in?


Thanks Jim
