Default been out for awhile. best nitro motors????

hey all. i took a break from the rc scene for a bit and came back to it this summer. i ran brushless thsi year but with a lack of local guys to race with i am going back to nitro. already have a mbx6t but i am having a hard time deciding which mill to run. should i go high end, os speed spec 2, middle of the road,, the new reedy or go cheap like the go techs? basically i havent seen what is performing and for what price to get that performance. my last motor was a modded v spec which i loved. anyway does anybody have any recomendations? thanks.

There is NO WAY a picco is better then a Speed. Nor can it reach the reliability of one.

But back to the question you asked. The V-spec is still a GREAT motor. The Ninja JX .21 and Speed are now just higher power/more fuel efficient versions of the good ole v-spec. If you like raw power the JX is great. If you like sooth power the speed is amazing. I know nova's and RB's last a long time but neither seems as nice to drive as an OS. I have heard a ton of good things about the Werks B5 especially in the smooth power and run time department. For $200 it looks awesome.

The modded Picco will absolutely smoke the OS Speed in any form of performance except runtime.... The modded Picco does get good mileage, but I wouldn't say quite as good as the Speed....... seriously the Speed has nothing on the Picco, from bottom to top the Picco will mow down the Speed like its an RTR engine ! As for reliability, we get 10 gallons from the Picco's all the time, they never miss a beat... the only unreliability comes from smoked clutches LOL

I spoke with him a few days ago and I'm pretty sure that is the way I'll be going as well. Good guy that took the time to answer some questions.

Ahh OK makes since now. You are trying to sell them so you over-rate them. Got it.
