i have a old tamiya nitro crusher which i have had for 5yrs now. but the engine isnt preforming as well, when i first got it the engine never went past half throttle and always stalled often. it has come somewhat better but the engine is sluggish to move. so I'm thinking of doing a engine swap as the price here in New Zealand to rebuild is to high and cheaper for a new engine.

any suggestions?? its currently a .15 and thinking of going higher, is it worth to aswell?

i will have to check it out. the problem is whether a .18 engine will fit in my old tamiya. also cheap engines may not last long too.

So, figured out what engine to get? Received the hobby King engine and it runs great. Tons of power for a .18

nah but i got a new/used HPI drift nitro car which had a spare HPI g3.0 engine with a smashed piston and rod, ordered a new piston and sleeve kit for it and tidied up the engine insides so will try swap to that engine. it fits the Tamiya's stock mounts but i dont have the correct clutch bell gear or clutch kit for it, so have to see if the Tamiya's one will fit it.
