building an rc from scratch is real nice if you have the time, but for me (lazy person) a used t max 2.5 was the way to go, real stable once i learned how to throw the weight arround and they will take a 3' drop no questions asked, i think i would have a hard time switching to something different. If i where going to build an rc i would start with a 2 stroke engine from a larger weed eater. cheaper fuel and less finnicky to tune. just my 2 cents worth.

new HPI buggy uses a 2 stroke engine... nice, i thought about it.. but i wanted nitro and a 4x4.

but how simple.. no problems, familiar territory.. i know nitro's are similar.. but also the life span diff.

but half as slow? When you ever needed more torque from a glow engine? They have to make shit more and more complicated. Why would you want a lower rpm engine I see for crawling it might be pretty good. They use a dry sump?
