If price is no problem, imo id say the following


C6 BBT - Good power, great run times, Nice to tune and reliable

Os Speed - As above but id consider the ally headed version

Thats the two motors im down to at the moment, ive had a decent look at other brands ie novarossi,sirio etc... but im always drawn to rb or os mainly because ive ran them before and a lot of people run them at the tracks

Just my 2p

Thumbs up Come on guys.....

It really does not depend on price... to be fair, it depends on the size of the track you run it at. What is listed here is the absolute cream of the crop. However, all of these motors can be and usually are, too much motor for mid to small tracks. Keep in mind the Losi really does not need a lot of motor.

Sportworks .21 V2
RB S-5
RB S-7
OS VG

These are great motors as well in the right enviroment. If you are club racing you might want to consider one of these.
I personally know a modded S7 or V2 Sportworks gives up nothing on the track to the big boy engines.

I'm with Tex on this one.

For the money S5 or S7, for over the top power C6. Either way don't put a junk pipe on it.

For small & medium tracks S5 is the bomb with a 198 & 2020 (2045 for better milage).
