    hpi has a roto start that works good and the e-z start could probably fit on other motors than the 2.5

    you shopuld try to get as much as possible. just look through tower hobbies and other aftermarket parts stores for upgrades. i'd take a look at the wasp .18 or an xtm 24.7 you could probably put roto start on that. i would thiunk the roto start would work on the xtm because thats what most people put in there savage.

    Man that would be insane! You should get a wasp.26! That engine has more lowend torque with amazing high end rpm than you can ever want! I want to see that in action! a 2 kg spinning wheel of death at 30000 rpm. wow! The rotostarter fits into the .26 no problems. you just need to shimm the oneway shaft in the roto housing.

    I have the picco p3 in my savage(exact same engine as the wasp) It is a good engine and super fast. I have an xtm 24.7 pro in savage#2 and I like it more. It is a much smoother powerband and easier to drive. It has almost the same top end too. The next engine will be the new rb .28. It will be released anyday now.

    the only difference between the picco and wasp i s cosmetic right? most savage guys put the 24.7 in over the wasp or picco. if you are into savages here is a good link.

    4 months ago everyone was buying picco/wasp/p3 engines (all the same the only different one is the werks picco p3 .26 ,it has mod work done on it and is more expensive, not to be confused with the picco p3 which is the same as the others) More people are leaning towards the 24.7 xtm pro. it has a smoother powerband and is easier to tune. I think the next engine that will be popular will be the new rb .28 or the fantom fr.27 these have not been released yet but they are getting alot of talk on all the boards! The mach .26 is also popular it has a stronger low end than the xtm pro but not quite as high rpm. The two engines xtm pro and mach .26 share the same inernals but the mach .26 has a larger bore. I have ran both but I prefer the xtm pro as the top speed is a little better and the low end isnt quite as backflippy.

    the trx 2.5 has low power but high rpm so it still makes it a good motor
