Default Low cost buggy engine

I'm looking for a low cost entry Buggy engine and pipe. I'll be putting in an 8ight and likely starting it with a starter box. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Nova BF new for around 180.00
I have owned both and they both worked great

I'm not going to be racing really with this buggy I have two 8th scale electrics I'm planning to race. I'm looking for an easy to tune solid engine for bashing around on the track with my friends.

Novarossi limited edition n21b. Best bang for the buck entry buggy engine on the market right now. $150 for the engine, pair it with a dynamite 086 and you got a helluva $200 combo.

Go 3-port sport... $99 and it rips in a buggy. I used one in my truggy as well with great success.

+1 on the Go 3P Sport

don't look on the VG, they don't last longer than 2 or 3 gallons, if you would pay $150 for a VG, better take a Nova Limited instead.

Where can you get a Go 3 port sport engine for 99? It's between a hyper 21 8 port and the Go 3 port sport right now.
