I agree with Jazz on the Jammin motor. It's stupid fast.

The 2009 ceramic piston turbo head SH engine is absurdly sweet!
I have yet to see any other engine pull on it, and it pulls on every engine it was up against at the track!

Reedy 121 VR in RC8t
Werks B7 Pro was in RC8T
Collari XS600 Currently in TTR S3. Almost new was never really happy with it so if anyone is located in Sydney they can have it for $100 AUD. Not saying it is no good quite the opposite. I had it in a really heavy rally game so maybe that was the issue

Forgot I also have the Sirio 24T truggy motor was going to put it in the rally game just not sure if I should or if I sell it off and put the Werks in instead?

With the dynamite 086 pipeset on it, it maintains the low end while still having something on top! True it's not the best top end but most of the tracks I race on have short straightaways, so top end is not a top priority for me. But for a $150 engine you can't go wrong!

i just broke in my Reedy in my RC8T and it is awesome! I love it so far. I've seen a bunch of v-spec and they always run good and are usually out front! Ninja have always been big power at my track, but more recently Go motors have started to become popular. I haven't had any luck with them, they always run pretty strong, but reliability has been an issue. Thumbs up for power, thumbs down for quality

As well as you care for it, keep you filter clean..Change out the bearings and rod after gallon 3. I got another 6 gallons through mine, so 9 total with new bearings and rod after 3 and I sealed it up good every 3 gallons..The pinch is super tight, lots of stress on the bearings and rod during break in..Do it right..give it some TLC and she'll treat you right..Held a tune well also, rarely flamed and it was usually my fault..This engine has so much power I was taming it down at times..It's made by Picco

I personally have to vote for the V-Specs. I have ran them for years now, and have recently made the expensive change to running the Speed versions. I can say, to me, they are money very well spent. Like someone else said.... I would rather spend extra money for two mills, and have two flawless engines that ALWAYS perform well...every time. To me, there is nothing more frustrating than engine problems at the track. I believe...buy good ones and be done with it.

V-Specs (especially Speeds)= easy to tune, awesome fuel mileage, many gallons of longevity (if tuned properly), and lightning fast, but yet VERY smooth. Perfect combination, I think. Good stuff!

That's my two cents....

Good luck!
Brad

I too have to agree with Jaz on this. If you want an out of the box kick ass engine the Jammin JPX .21 is the ticket. I just recently started running one in my Truggy and it has low end power for days with pleeeenty top end. The price point ($220) is just the killer its less than most mills and a just rips. If you are price conscious and want something under $200 then its the N21 bf ($160) all day long.

I have run.
RB S3, W7 S3
Werks .28
Go 7P
Picco EVO 2
Jammin JPX (which is a Picco)
