Yes

Standard is just the engine and you can do your own break in...



Most of the us team guys are running the Fully Modded in Truggy and the standard in Buggy... However i do switch it up a bit depending on the track... i would suggest the standard cause its in your price range.. also it works great with the 086 dynomite pipe.

The Go Techs are in this price range and they are very good engines.The best bang for your buck in my opinion.

I'm sure Monty from H.E.S. can build the same engine for you.

NOVAROSSI N21BF LIMITED EDITION- save the other $50. You already have the pipe for it. Buy a set of AKA premounts with it. Its a killer engine !!

ex techs are great engines , hopefully you dont have any carb issues . if you do just throw a novarossi carb on it.

they have an almost uncontrollable bottom end though

The werks b3 is a great engine for $200. Even comes with a rear ceramic bearing. Plunty of power down low. Practically tunes itself.

Go's are garbage compared to Novarossi quality and longevity. No need for rod changes every 2-3 gallons

Well this is a funny one. I had looked on Ebay for the Novarossi before ordering the Ex-Tech. I found 1 and it had best offer on it. So I kida lowballed the guy not thinking he would take it. So I go order the Ex-Tech and moved on. Lat night checked my email and the guy took my offer. So I got both of the motors. Right on!! Which one should I try first??
