Lots of good choices with that price range. heard the Axe Mamba or whatever its called is really good for $200.

I have the O.S. VG 21 and for the $140 I spent on it I am quite happy with it.

+1 for RBMike's comment. Go with the RB motor.

Werks Team Line .21 B3. $209

Jammin JPX .21 (Picco based) $229

Novarossi NR21bf $179

Those are the 3 best I know of. RB's are great quality (made by Novarossi) but can be sensitive to clutch and pipe. If you don't get the combo right they have weak bottom end power. Get it right and they rip.

I have never had any problems with nova's or os's

Tower hobbies has a $30.00 of your order of $199
Thats 300-30=270.00 and you have a vspec. i have had 3 and love them
but that may be a bit much for your wallet.

SH makes good lower end engines if you just need something to get you by for now.
But what seams to be, to me is that a $110 motor and a $400 motor will both make great power but the $400 motor will do it for 2-5 times longer than the
$110 motor. I have had a few engines in my days and there are a bunch of good suggestions here for you to chose from.

I my past experiences the nova's tend to be harder for the novice tuner to get running right the rb's are ok i have one in my onroad car. but never in an offroad. I have a friend that has a werks he likes it. It runs good.
