Well those actually are all GREAT engines. It is just a matter of personal preference. I would choose the RB WS7III, Ninja or Nova on your list. The C6 is awesome, but I would prefer it in a truggy. I am buying either the C6BB or Ninja very soon also and am very excited...

Right now I am using the RB WS7II x3 which has the same stats as the WS7III but is mainly less durable/ long lasting according to Rody. I LOVE this engine in my 8ight, fast as hell, a little lacking in low end, but that helps reduce wheelspin which equates to faster laps and more control.

Ultimate engine? One that finishes a race.

I can't see spending that much on an engine, but I'd go with a Nova or OS.
