GRP is the way to go. I have about 3 TO 4 gallons on mine no issues what so ever. Still has good compression. I did just buy a ninja jx21 i like to try different engines. Very satisfied with the grp!

I run 2 OS Vspec's and a GRP on my 8T. The vspec is the way to go for the 8ight. I'm going to put my spare Vspec in my 2.0 when it arrives.

The RB and the speed are almost the same cost, plus the OS has the cermanic bearing in it. I don't even run OS engines, I just know that engine is the best one to have to rate power out of the box, ease of tuning, and stamina, given I've seen some team drivers break in a new engine after 2 gallons. I've seen and driven a C6BB, in competition it is even and you would probably turn the same lap time with the engine, but it lacks the blunt HP the OS has, however it does make up in a smoother bottom to mid range.

There are so many engines out there. I guess taht's why 8th scale is so popular.

The topic of this thread is SO subjective it's silly. There is no "best" motor period.

There are for's and against's for just about every one. I've had GRP, OS Speed and Vspec, RB C6 and WS7. there are things I like and dislike about each. But which track I'm at and how I'm driving on the day deciede's which is best on any given day.

This question is kinda like asking "what's the best tire"?
It really depends on what type of track you race on.

I'm gonna throw my hat in for the V-spec. awesome all around, and I've been lucky, no bad bearings or leaking issues. like it was said earlier, runs like a clock. the only way I plan to 1 -up the v-spec, is to buy the O.S. Speed.

Chris, not sure if you purchased yet but the GRP will be a great choice. I to run the 2.0 and it is a near perfect combo for the buggy!!

I even run a mild clutch setup and a 6mm restictor. I get great runtime, temps below 200, and more life than I got with my vspecs as Art mentioned back a few post.

Read up on the GRP engine thread, I think its on the first page now.

If possible try to go this route:

Thats the best all around pipe for the mill. Maybe see what coupons that place has(look on front page) and you can snag it for a good price.

Not sure if someone posted this already but here is a link to a motor sale on Siro sti, Trinity Extech, RB WS73 turbo, and Mugen JX21. This might help save a buck on one bada$$ group of motors...
