This is a general rule that is accurate for most engine lines...go compare part numbers. (exploded views)

Novarossi does this for sure...

They offer "rally" engines; which are nothing more than on-road engines with buggy heads and a r.s. front bearing.

Pretty much exactly what you need.

Only problem is they're not imported here to the states, so you're probably better off using a "hot" buggy engine (FMS) or just using a mild onroad with a buggy heatsink on it.

The strongest top end I get from the RB C6...its absolutely insane on the top end and sounds like a siren blasting down the straight......It has decent bottom, but nothing too extreme, the midrange is explosive and the top end is unreal..... It can be sensitive to tuning tho, but nothing too bad once you get used to it...its also phenomenal on fuel....

My second favorite is the Picco P7R engines...they have more power then the RB, tune a little easier and have very close to the same top end...They sound like a ripsaw going down the straight...not quite as good of mileage as the C6 tho......

I also have to give honorable mention to the Go 7 port..It has a wicked port design that gives me an excelent platform to work from... I have been testing a track mod 7 port this last week and had it ripping about 45000 RPM under load drag racing 5S Brushless Truggy ( 2200 KV, 3.8V cutoff)..believe it or not but the nitro won..Now the scary part is this is only a track mod, I have not yet put my "Frankenstein" timing profile into it ..With a full "Frank" timing profile the engine will be insane

The JPX is pretty much identical to the Picco P7R engines....

The JPX sounds real good,and I need some good fuel mileage too.
The RB C6 seems more of what I'm looking for,I don't need all the low end torque,just enough to get the car out of the corners without the wheel spin and the C6 sound like the engine I'm looking for.Explosive mid to top end.

What about those true on-road engines like the Novarossi 359/35+21 and the Picco P9R's,or the RB Alpha Xenon's.Would those be good for what I'm running??Will they have enough torque to push the buggy based rally car??

I have never run a onroad in a Buggy, so I am not sure what to say... The modified C6 is timed very close to the onroad but with a few tricks to retain a good low end... It would come out of the corner smooth but by mid track it would lift the nose of the buggy in the air as it would pull so hard, we never did find a track big enough to ever hear the engine stop revving..it seemed to keep on pulling no matter how long you held it........ It also was getting nearly unbelievable mileage as well... Wicked evil motor, but pricey....

Yeah I think the offroad version of the C6 will work really well in a GT car. Never tried it but I think it would do the job.
