I have the nova .21 and if I was you I would not run that motor it is a great motor but it is not enough motor. I run a Trinity Draked .21 and a Sirio CL7B and I love those motor for the truggy. The Draked .21 is the same thing as the picco evo2 that is one of the best motors you can get hands down. But there are a lot of motors on the market these days and they are all great so good luck picking a motor.

When A-main said to check out the LRP.28 ($169) it made sense initially because the Hyper ST isn't the lightest truggy on the market and the added punch might be worth it. I'm really looking for a solid engine, good value, at the right price point.

Honestly... $149 for the Novarossi or $169 for the LRP Spec .28 is in the right price point. The pull start is a quicker upgrade since I wouldn't need the bump box to start.

I know just what you mean about price range. Out of those to I would go with the Nova it is a better motor for racing. The LRP has just way to much power you would have to tune the motor down by the clutch.

Many .21 motors can kick out close to the same power(and some more then) a .28 without sucking down the fuel.

Pull starts can pull down the power on a motor. Not by much but its something that will show up if you were to compare a pull start and non pull start on a dyno.

If your going to race more then bash. Then a start box is something you should invest in. They last as long as your in the hobby pretty much and they dont really run all that much cost wise (less then $100)even after you buy batteries for it.

Looking on ebay right now and there is a Ofna truggy starter box for $29.

I raced my truggy yesterday and I took 5th place in the New Years season opener there was some good racing I put in the kyosho gearing in my truck at it seemed to have a more power down low but it was a good up grade to do.

i would like to get a bce chassis but they take ages to get to the uk.....so ive found a late chassis from an st that has been milled out .....i think they call it the lightened chassis .....so im going to go with that and then do the usual mods ie,kyosho diffs,losi brakes,losi side guards,hong shocks,losi radio tray,x2 fuel tank,kyosho chassis braces,hyper 8 shock towers,hyper 7 steering top plate.....i think thats about it .....lol.... if i think of anything else i will get it done .......

You got a losi radio tray to work I tryed that and could not get it to fit right I would love to see some pics when you get it done. That is going to be a bad truggy when you are done.

I will get up some pics as soon as I can.

Why the Hyper 7 steering plate? What about Hyper 8 castor blocks?

The hyper 7 steering plate is a lot lighter. The 8 caster plates I dont think they work but I think the hyper 7 toe plates work.
