Default Engine choice opinions.

Well basically time has come to buy a new engine so want to here what use guys think, i am currently considering trying out the new ninja jx21.

I generally am capable of getting long run times from most engines.
Most recent enginesNovarossi p5xs was getting 13 mins
Lasted around 12 gallons then conrod went

Rbws711 10 1/2 mins
Still running almost 20 gallons ,

Novarossi 21 7 12mins
Lost compression at 3 gallons due to water getting in engine got pinched now has 7 on it.

I am after reliability and durability.

never hurts to add another Novarossi to the stable

the plus 4 and Toro Nero look super kickass!

Can't go wrong with the ninja. Awesome fast engine, great runtimes, easy tuning and long lasting. IMO one of the best buggy/truggy engines on the market.

Novarossi engines are good have had 3, but was considering Rb r ninja this time perhaps more towards the ninja to match my mbx6 kit just bought.

Anyone know what the new matched pipe is for the new ninja jx21?

The mugen 2042 pipe. Or the OS 2060, same pipe.
