Welcome to yalid27250!! there are many good durable truck engines. It all comes down to how much you wanna spend. But I think the GO Tech engines are probably the value leader right now. Followed by maybe STS and then SH. All of those engines can be had for USD $200 or less.

But I guess it all depends on your experience level when it comes to tuning engines. I always tell newbs to get a cheap engine and learn with that. That way if you kill it you're not out beaucoup bucks. I like the Losi engine which are made by SH. They're very cheap and for the price the quality and power production is very good!

Anyways, if you have any questions just ask away! Everyone here is very willing to help.

BTW, I sesnt you a PM.

A good cheap motor seems like the Axial .28 SPEC 1. Your in vaughn so check out this shop here.

Axial .28 is only $150.

I like the losi mach 427 motor as well but most shops have them over priced IMO.
Go subaru!
