Nova plus 4
Nova plus 21-5k
Nova limited edition 3 port (best bang for the buck engine)
RB S5 (I prefer the 5 port over the 7)
Os v-spec
Mugen JX ninja(prefered over the v-spec)
Maybe the new v-spec pro mod version.

All would be great engines and most are in the same general price range(the nova 3 port and RB S5 are cheaper than the rest).

priority shipping is about $25, we have the v spec as well. I like the v spec, awesome in truggy and buggy great runtimes, but less life span than the Nova's or the JX .21 but we are working on some things for that.

Blue=Standard V spec
Black= Speed V spec

The blue has a harder hitting bottom and a tic less top
The Black has smoother bottom and more top, but has a ceramic coated crank.

The JX .21 has the samew crank only without the tungstun weight, this is preferd as the blue v spec crank pin wears fast.

I would rather see you with the JX ninja over the v-spec. And a RB or a Rossi over them both.
