the Jammin JPX.21 is a great engine! its like $239.99. its very easy to tune and holds a tune real well. it has gobs of power. it will idle forever.

Werks B5 or Jammin JPX.

There is a thread about both of these engines, both are great motors and im sure there would be no dissapointment buying either. The B5 is $199 and the JPX is about $230.

Dynamite Platinum .21 XP

I've got about 12 tanks through mine as so far it's a screamer! Holds a tune and flies.

there is nothing wrong with the stock bearing's in Any of the Picco/JPX/LRP.21/Orion line up...i dont know what you did to cause the bearing to fail so soon..but its not a characteristic of the motor.

Go techs are good motors if you get a vspec or nova carb for them...i love vspecs and the new novas...any of these are great motors imo.

I want to try the new werks motor as well

There is only one answer:
V SPEC!
How has no one mentioned it? I would pick that over any of those other engines any day for under 300. Well maybe besides the ninja but never seen one under 300.
