    glad i ordered that os 18 today ,i think that should pick things up a little,do you think this megatech i got is better than the stock nitro star 15 from hpi? i also have a new nitrostar 12 rss somewhere around here,just tryin to figure out which one to use for a while til my new os gets here. thanks for the honest reply.the guy at the lhs tried to tell me that the megatech was a great engine for the truck im using it in but i know better than that because ive never seen any of my friends using them before, so there must be a reason.take care

    I ordered the os. 18 cv-r, should be a nice upgrade,im gonna run the other motor i have thats brand new also for a while, its the hpi 12.pro supposed to be a nice engine,i think im gonna just set the megatech up on the shelf for another project or something ,i got a new paris turbo pipe that should help things along.Can you tell me, did the hpi nmt come with a 2 speed or is it a upgrade?When i bought the truck it came with both set ups, but the 2 speed is in there now, should be a ripper if i can get some nice weather to run it.thanks take care
