Default Hey, what engine do you guys recommend...

Hey all, Well after my Great 1st meet. I have a option-Maybe at getting a new .21 For my Hyper 8.5.
As some of you may know, I have a Go 7port-Which gave me some troubles, so Im in the process and maybe getting a new engine. For just racing use. And use my Go, If I want for practice/garden play.

Im, not that great on knowing what engine's to look at.. I know that alot of people really like the RB S7 I think> And its not too bad wise.. and the OS-Vspec-Good price. So would like to hear your thought's, on what you recommend. That Has good power, wont need to be re pinched after a gallon! haha And will be very consistant... thanks guys

V Specs are Great, Easy to tune, Have 4
WS7 II _ great for buggy, tune well, Have 2
Any SH engine, great price, tune well, and budget freindly, Have 4
I am currently running a GRP in Buggy an V spec in Truggy
GRP makes good power, But I have had some issues with It, I have ran about every engine out there, and depending on your budget I would reccomend the top three to start with.

NR P5 great all around motor, easy to tune
NR Plus 4, very smooth, wicked fast, easy to drive hard, killer runtime
OS V Spec killer bottom, killer top, can be a handfull. Longevity?
JX 21 Mugen great bottom great top, tad smoother on bottom VS V spec huge topend, Ceramic crank like the speed, longevity no problem.

these are great buggy mill's reliable, fast, easy to tune, and work well with many pipes.

I'm a GO fan, I race with a 3-port, if you need more power the 5/7 race engines getting nothing but good reviews.

I think the S7 is a solid motor, i really liked it when i ran it. just get the right pipe......it likes a JP-1 but gets poor milage, maybee a Rb 2020 or 2045
