What are you putting it in? How much money do you want to spend? There are alot of variables when choosing a mill.

the most well rounded engine is the speed, it can be used in the buggy or truggy, with the right pipe combo it can be smooth in the buggy or with a different pipe it can be made more aggressive for the truggy

Hmmmm... LOL!

Best all around....?

Well here are my top 5 picks for 2009:
The new OS Speed
The new RB C6BBT7 L2G
The new Mugen JX21
The new Max Power C5Q
The new Novarossi +4


Obviously its impossible to pick one motor without asking in more detail what its for. So I think a top five best pick works in this case.

i say this is a loaded question cause you cant just pick one motor from the hundereds that are out the and it does depend on so much that you cant even pick but i have heard the grp .21 is a great motor plus i wanna get one so i will say that one but i am getting a mugen .21 for now

Go 5 port engine is probably the most well rounded engine on the market, its reliable, powerful, last a long time, and fits into the cost criteria. It will not leave you short on power on any track and also gets good fuel mileage.

The Jammin JPX 21 is another solid contender for all around good motor, especially for anyone looking for a stronger bottom end
