Default LOOKING FOR A 21 FOR LOSI 8 ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Like the title states i'm looking for a 21 for my 8. I would like to stay around $300 or under if possible. I would like something with good bottom end and mid range to race with. Do you know of any that i could still use the spin start instead of a stater box?

The JP B5N (Modified Black Coating) will give the OS speed, and GRP Tuned a run for it's money!

The tracks i run are a little loose. One is a medium to short tech track the other is a little bigger with a bit more straights and not so tight. I was looking at the grp tuned for $339 at amain but would not like too spend any more than that. What options do i have with spin start motors like the stock losi. I was also interested in brian's go techs.

Get the GO Tech 5 port and you run it with OS P3 plugs.
