Engine upgrade advice

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello all
I have a HPI MT. As you all might know, the .15 fe motor blows the proverbial mmonkey and has finally quit on me. I am looking into getting into some off road action on track with some buds, but I am quite baffled by the range of motors to sselectfrom. Anyone have a ssuggestionfor me? Rrightnow, I have the 2 speed tranny in the truck, but I would drop it if the track proves too short. Looking at maybe putting a .25 in it, but not to sure if it's the way to go.

Thanks in advance.

If you want to go big block on the MT, you will need a big block engine mount kit and shoe type 2 speed from www.wolfpackradicals.com .The stock transmission pin will bust with big block power. You will also need the hardend diff gears and drive cups.
Theres some really strong .18`s out there too from: OS (TZ) and Sirio.
