Default help! need new engine for 8ight buggy

I think I've had enough of my 3 port Go engine problems after this past weekend. Nothing but flame outs and the tune constantly changing after every pit.
I'm thinking of these engines in no particular order, but price is an issue.
any info on any of these or suggestions of other engines would be helpful.

Werks Racing Team Line B3 Pro-C .21
Novarossi N21B 2001 BF .21
Hyper .21 8 Port, Off-Road, Race
Picco .21 Race P7 EVO 2 5+2- Port, w/SG Shaft

I'm trying to keep the price around $200.00

Thanks

I like the Picco myself.... Haven't had one of their .21s but I've had 2 of their .28s and they made great power and held a tune very well.

You've got 4 motors listed, you'll probably get 4 different answers

Might want to try the RB S5. You can pick that up at around 225.

I was in the EXACT same situation a while ago. I switched to RB. I got the WS7 L2G, which is more than you want to spend. Get the 3 or 5 port L2G.

LOL
Yes I realize this. I was more concerned about keeping up if possible
with OS V-Spec and engine longevity without tuning issues.
