My suggestion would be the Speed with a 2060 pipe.Lots power but a very smooth power band.very easy to tune,great mileage,dependable,hard to beat in my opinion.

I'll throw a vote for the speed also, I've not found a motor with better run times and if broken in properly they will last up to 10 gallons or more... They also have a powerband that is very well suited to buggy!

This is a good one here. I just had an os speed, and I currently have a nova plus 4. I had and rb c6 but it was the older model, the first version of the bb. Out of the 3 the plus 4 is hands down my choice. The rb has great power, and had a great life span(over 10 gallons), but its only draw back was I did not get the great fule mileage every one claims.
On the os speed , very powerful motor, especially on the bottom end. To me in my mbx6 with a 2050 it was kind of a handful. The motor tunes great, idles great, netted pretty good runtime, about 9:00-9:30 mins for me. The biggest flaw to me though is the price! A speed with a 2050 will easily set you 5-6 bills. And from my previous vspecs I personally just could not get as many gallons out of the os as I could a novarossi.
The plus 4. This is my first one and I only have a gallon though the motor so far. The plus 4 is butter smooth, easier to drive for me. At only a gallon of fuel the motor already gets a little over 11 mins to a tank, idles and tunes great, and it is a nova mill so I expect the engine to easily go 10 gallons or so.
My vote is the plus 4.

For buggy, the Plus 4 is the way to go, the Speed is second to me just because of the price, both motors have great life in them, the plus will last jujst as long and no coated crank, i have a test Speed and it has well over 8 gallons and it still runs with modded Extech's. The JX 21 is also a motor not to be over looked, more bottom than the speed and Plus 4 but still very drivable, and wicked topend, but the Plus 4 again just has the best price and will performe and has more than the ability to win you races, if you can wheel it.

You can't beat a speed for a smooth powerful engine. Very easy to tune. Probably the easiest of all motors out there.

New Nova is good too. Feels smooth also. Can't comment much on the RB but I know that recently some of the stigmas with RB were removed in the C6 that being a lack of bottom end.
