Default Best Motor for $200????

About to buy a new motor. I want to know what motor .21 would be a good deal under $200. I know it is really no right answer but just curious on the diff. ones out there.

I am thinking GRP non-tuned.

That $200 Orion looks really nice, too. RB Junior 9 is a safe bet.

I am also thinking of putting it in my 8 buggy, and putting my VSPEC in my 8 truggy. I want something that if I wanted to switch between the 2 it would not affect anything..

Tell me more about this Novarossi

The Sirio Ex-Tech is a little more 229 (amain) but IMO is A LOT more engine for 30 dollars.. Comes with ceramic bearing, turbo head, Sirio quality. I run these engines and have had great success. They put out a ton of smooth power and for the price are onr\e of the best deals around...

Spend the extra $15 bucks and get the Axe Rossi Sport with the 2050 pipe for $214.99 at Amain. I use it as a back up but ran the combo in my MBX6 two weeks ago while my P5 was down and won the amain by two laps. It's not a punk engine! I used it last year in a Hyper St Pro and did well. It has very good torque for a 7 port sport motor with enough spunk to get you around the track. I'm not trying to say that it's a savior but it's enough. I usually run Novarossi P5's in my MBX6T and MBX6 but the Axe Rossi Sport is a good club racing motor or back up! Novarossi N21B is good as well but the Axe Rossi sport has a greater power band IMO. I have both as back ups!

just an option, but you could pick up a NICE used engine in the 100s range. I picked up a JP 21 B5N for 80 bucks

Thanks for the info. But ive been down the used engine route before. Bought VSPEC that did not last 1/2 gallon. Not saying that all used are bad, but I would just rather spend the extra cash and get new...
