Out of those three i would have to go with the 427.

If i can sugest a different motor the LRP .28 has more power then all of them and it is only about 175 bucks.

I ran an Axial .28 spec1 on my savage and it was a wheelie king and now i run one on my ofna buggy and it screams. Its a bit of a gas hog but come with two inserts for the carb that help. I have had no tuning issues with this engine and love it. Never really ran the other 2 so i cant comment on those.

Well im not sure on what top end it has but for me it works. I took about a 30 running start and jumped over my buddies house with it. But keep us informed as to what you get Id like to hear how, which engine you end up with, turns out. Maybe I can get more top end with a different one.
