OS V_Spec, GRP or the new Ninja are in that price range I believe, all three very respectable engines IMO

I can only speak of the tuned GRP .21 - amazing. Runs like a top engine should. Smooth idle, great response and the smoothest powerband I've ever seen from a .21 platform. Doesn't have that explosive surge of power, but more of a four stroke feel to it. Quite linear.

Current setup is with the GRP 2053 pipe and GRP #6 plug using Nitrotane fuel.

Paid $440 for the 'promo' pack, which came with everything above, minus fuel. (plus a pitmat, shims, decals, restrictors and nifty keyfob)

Hands down, the Twister Mods OS V-Spec, Lopez killed the field with that motor, and they are only $350 modded

Couldnt agree more. I have been running two of these mills and they are keeping up with all the high dollar motors and they come in at about half their price!!!

I wouldnt recommend the AXE Cobra unless you are wanting a torquey motor, say for a truggy. It has good grunt but it lacks top end when compared to the Mamba.
