Yeah, I DO have a good suggestion for you. The Sportwerks .26 V2 is a great engine, makes near the HP of most higher-end engines and is pretty durable. $129.95 on A-main. You'll also want to buy the backplate for it (it is a pullstart engine) for about another $12 if you are using a starter box... of course if you are using pullstart right now, well, it comes with that.

2.75 hp, easy to tune, and the easiest break-in I've ever seen. I know a guy who actually ran this engine in his truggy at the Nationals!
