On a budget? Novarossi BF21

Not on a budget? OS Speed or Ninja JX21 are both reliable mills

i've seen you drive how about a tz 18 for your buggy.lol
j/k buddy, lots of good motors out there but i think its a waste of money to buy a $550 motor that we beat the snot out of. i had the jp mod v spec which was a $450 motor that was close to the speed but i do just fine with a $300 ninja. for next season im going to run the new werks b5 motor thats only $200 from amain and they are getting 10 min of run time. dont think your going to get many complaints about the speed, but again it costs too much.

I run a Ninja JX and it's a good motor, but next season I am definitely going to run a Werks B5. The motor rips! I was listening to one go down the straight and I thought that I was gonna temp at 300+*F. It came off the track at 230*F

B5 with a 2013 pipe is my vote.

Ninja are great engine so long as you don't over load them with fuel. a few guys at the track have been having a few problems with this. os speed great engine but is almost double the price of everything else. axe rossi is great if you are looking for a tighter track it does strugle in the mid rpm but good after that.

i am going to an alpha. all that i have heard about them is good and they have a great powred band that is contistant threwout the rpm range and they are very cheap.

Alpha is my bet

The best engine for you is the "search engine."

This topic comes up at least once or twice a week.

Because you wasted your time posting this thread... and I was in a smart-aleck mood, as usual.

There really ARE a lot of good threads about engines on here if you simply take the time to read.

And the answer to your question is a matter of opinion, not fact. There is no "best" motor. It depends on driver skill level, type of tracks you expect to run on, type of car it is going in, and budget.
