Default Truggy engine

Hi all,,
First of all... My name is Erwin,
I'm from holland..
And love jammin truggys lol

ok 2 the point...

I wanna buy a new engine for my truggy.. but i don't know which one..
- Novarossi 367 .21
- RB Concept RT28
- SIRIO .21 S21-s
- Picco P3-R

Or maybe you advise me something else..
And please tell me why, and why not!

Greetz,
erwin


EDIT..
Now only this 2 engines:
Go .21 5PT
GRP 21 tuned buggy

Which one has best mileage?
and which has longer drive times on a 125cc tank

the 367 is better suited for a buggy, i have used the 821b in the truggy and it worked well, i think alot of people are using the plus 21-7fms now

as far as rb goes most people are using the c6bbt for truggies, the 28 dosent give good fuel economy

as far as sirio goes i have run the cl7bsti w/2013 in my truck and it works really good

other good choices are the go ebm5, os v-spec, ninja jx, os speed, you just need a .21 that has good bottom end power to get the truck moving

i have tried a modified p7r evo2 and it was really strong, i have heard of people having pretty good luck with the jammin jpx21 in there truggies also, i am not completly sold on picco's but they do offer alot of power for the money

In most cases I try to pick one of the choices given but this time I feel strongly enough.

OS V-Spec and 2050 pipe.

That is the absolute best combo I can imagine for a truggy unless you wanna step up to the Speed or Ninja JX.

I recommend A GO TECH .21 5 port race with the GO 0801 pipe or the Dynamite 086. Just as much if not more powerful than the V-spec and like $100 cheaper. And if taken care of well could get the same if not more gallons of fuel through. This motor has amazing low end power and with the recommended pipes will pull hard for ever. And with the $100 you save you can send the engine to your local modifier and have an even more powerful mill.

not familian with the s21-s is that a 5 port long stroke? also the p3 that you are describing is it the .21 or the .28? if the s21-s is comparable to the cl7bsti then i would chose that one out of the 4
