XTM 457 Pro Truck R/C 6 Port Engine .28ci w/PS
- Product Review (submitted on January 1, 2011):
I've had this engine over 3 years now. Dropped it in my old s'kool Revo 2.5 and was nothing less than BALLISTIC! I was hard to turn over until broken in, but once dialed in, it is EASY to keep tuned with minor corrections at best. Sure, I've tore up some tranny gears, but totally worth it! Have got a Trinity tuned pipe, and a New Era big block conversion kit to make it all happen.
I now have a total of (4) XTM engines (The 457, 2-.21's and 1-.12) 'cause XTM is a great brand and I enjoy supporting our local Orange CA hobby shop...Ron, Erol, Nick, Devin, Chester and the gang cannot be beat, especially with a mega competitor UH down the street.
Just bought a Hobby People chopper, the "Mystery" and again, good stuff for the money... nope, GREAT STUFF for the money. Buy THIS engine, break it in, and go nuts with it... I did and still do!
