Take a look at the WS7III and C6, especially the new ones with L2G heads.

There are a lot of variables to be considered, such as driving style, track dimensions/conditions, longeivity to be expected, among other things not to mention budget.........There are a lot of good engine manufacturers out there for off-road racing applications(O'donnell, Novarossi, JP Racing, RB, OS) its just finding what suits your all around demands the best....................I myself am waiting for the O'donnell SS.21 to be released.........a friend of mine is running one in his Z01B and he says it is a superb engine, very smooth and linear throughout the curve with a frightening top end. The best part is, its going to be around the ballpark of $229 USD

Hey NiroFat, oops sorry NitroRat, you know I'm going to recommend the AXE Cobra Evo which you are not really interested in, but if there was one other motor, I would recommend the RB Concept WSIII buggy motor. There are newer model RB buggy motors out but this one has already shown in the racing world what it can do.
Have a word with Sparksy about its power & tuning ability, I believe he has one in his new Nanda. Ya better choose one soon, the OZ Nationals are in a little over 5 weeks away.

It doesn't matter which motor you get anyway, XRAY cars are going to be banned from my new private track anyway.

Translation: I already kinda know what I want, so I'm not really asking for your opinions. Please tell me good things about Sirio engines.

Legal maxim: he who questions well, learns well.

In regards to the Sirio mills, it really has more to do with where you're located and the availability of said engines/replacement parts to you. To be honest, I've never seen anyone run them... Likely because so few places I know carry the engines or the parts. Hearsay information I've read on the net is lukewarm, with parts longevity & tuneability being problem areas discussed on a few occasions. Happy hunting though.
