Ha, you are making the same decision I am right now.
Planning on buying the mbx6 just as soon as its available and have been eying both of the motors you have mentioned. I will probably get the ninja. I had one of the original ninjas and it was a great motor and nitrohouse has the best deal in town on it as well.

rather than asking what motor you should get for a particular buggy, you should tell us what type/size of track you will be racing on.. then you will get some good advice!

But for a mugen, you gotta go with the ninja, the O.S. based one. Nothing runs as consistantly as an O.S. Plus it has alot of the hard coated internal parts that the O.S Speed engine has, that's a bargain at that price!

The track is hard packed clay surface with a mix of large jumps, technical sections and fast open sections.

yeah, with the mugen i'd stick with the Ninja, they are a very reliable motor. A guy at my local track runs one, it is relaible, has good speed, and will keep up with any other donk out there

thats great about your speed but thats not really what the thread was about. i had the grp motor and now run the jx with the jx pipe. the motor is very smooth, easy to drive,and screams on top end. run the short,c header and if you dont win it wont be because of your mill.
oh and the jx is 200 bucks cheaper than the speed and it also has a hard coated crank. peanut switched from the grp to the ninja jx and it put him in the show at the worlds. ryan loved his grp so much he put a os in his car with the grp head at the nats.
