Default Favorite Motor for Racing or Bashing and why?

What has been your favorite motor over the years either for Racing or Bashing and why? Have you consistently stuck with the same Brand and Model because you really like it? Do you buy the same engine over and over when it wears out or keep replacing parts?

Favorite: O.S. V-spec-blue head

I've been through Hyper, XTM, RB

Now: GO 3 port R

I personally like to try different brands.
As for servicing the existing ones...anything other than piston/sleeve are being serviced. When it's time for new piston/sleeve then it's time for a new engine.

I have 3 Vspecs, one for practice, one for club racing and one for series races or big turnout races.

i tried using less expensive motors as practice motors and so on...thing is you get use to a certain power band, so its best to practice with what you race with...so i keep everything the same across the board...jmho
