Default Engine choices

Hello guys
Need a little help on choosing the right engine for my MBX-6. What would you recommend? These are the things I know I want.

1.Reliability
2.Durability
3.Power
5.Low maintenance

Thanks again

I run V-Spec but I race with some guys that have the new Trinity motors and they are very fast, reliable, and easy to tune. Nothing wrong with V-Spec either.

The JX21 is a good OS based motor, but I think the Novarossi Plus 21-4 is better.

i agree with the plus4 being better than the jx. but as Houston stated the limited 2000bf is very good engine in buggy. the only reason i say this is i had a jx and like the plus 4 better. stronger off the bottom..still very smooth and controllable. i go the BF for my youngest son and he loves it in his 808..but you will hear more opinions as well as mine..good luck

I run the RB S5 in my D8 and it is a sweet motor. I am not the greatest tuner but this thing runs great all the time. I have about 3 gallons on it and everything is still in good shape lots of pinch.

Trinity Extech is priced great and very fast and reliable. One of the smoothest powerbands out there.
