Questions?? good buggy engine

HI

Im looking at buying a HB D8 and was wondering if anybody has any ideas about a good engine to put in it. Im looking to pay about $150. It might be used for racing so a good racing engine would be nice. If anybody can help that would be great

STS are good engines i had a D21T and i liked it alot but if you want to get parts for them then good luck with that. also its hard to even get the engine. i would get something you can get of amain or towerhobbies or a place like that.
