Default Best performance engine regardless of price

Hi, all.

I am planning to make a trip to US at the end of this month and want to purchase a new engine for my Hyper 8 pro kit. Things are little more expensive over here.
I have been doing a research on engines and just can't decide the right one for me. I narrowed down my choices to the following three engines though, and want to hear which engine would be your choice based on experience.

1. Novarossi Plus 21-7BT (Stock)
2. RB Concept C6-BBT (Stock)
3. OS speed VZ-B V-Spec (Factory Tunned)

I often go to a small & tight track near where I live. However, I want to try bigger size track in the future as well.. So I am looking for an all-rounder engine with less trouble. Above three seems to be the most well known engines for performace and stability. If you have to choose one regardless of price, what will be your choice? and your reason for that?

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback & advice!

+1 for the RB, but in all honesty, all 3 are kickass. I just happen to have bought the C6BB (not the T7), so of course I would recommend it. Buy what you think you would like.

for power a Picco P7 EVO 2 has all 3 of those others beat.....But in a Buggy my buddy is loving his 21-7...seems to have alot of punch out of the corners.

Novarossi Plus 21-5K TNT Mods. Use a JP1 pipe/header combo. This is a deadly combination! www.tntmods.com

peak numbers on a dyno dont matter. smooth and consistant = fast. wheel spin = slow + crashes

depends on driving style alot aswell and what your driving. if you race agresively and like to throw your car into the corner and power out you want more bottom end torque like the rossi if you have just come from electric on road or nitro on road you will like the os because its smooth on power but has alot of punch but any of the engines up there you can tune to however you drive anyway so honestly get the cheapest out of these four, thats how i would go the rb the os the rossi or the gotech. because if your looking at these engines. it wont matter what you get because there all great engines and you wont be disapointed

If your planning on coming over for the Worlds warm-up and the race following it , you are going to want the v-Spec or RB C6T7 ! The 21-7 is a great engine but hard on fuel ! The 2 engines listed are great anywhere ,short or long track!

The Picco EVO2 has a VERY smooth and broad powerband with loads of power on tap when needed. Look in the Picco P7R EVO 2 thread for dyno charts that I posted of this mill.
