Questions?? Need help please! Reedy.21,JPX.21 or Werks B5

I had the old jpx .21 and loved it but now I can't choose between the Jammin or Reedy for another engine do you guys have any input? Also this will be for the new RC8T-CE

i will never buy another engine beside the JPX 21. i have ran alot of other engines and by far the JPX is my favorite. i dont understand why people say it doesnt get good run time, im getting over 8 min a tank in my buggy and about 10 in my truggy.

I have been running the new Jammin Plus in my truggy and can get 9 min no problem. This engine never has missed a beat from day one. Great power, performanc,longevity for the money .

As someone who runs a out of the box Reedy in my truggy, if is seems like a turd, the tune is off.

also the reedy run a little hot IMO like 250+ and it doesnt seem like its lasting as long as the JPX engines. i have seen alot of reedys breaking crank cases too.

Agreed. 250 seems hot. But i have 4 gallons on my buggy, and 3 on my truggy, and both are hard to turn over by hard. Never seem the case crack, but i have seen plenty with Crank silicone problems.

250 does not seem hot,it is hot! I have seen them run a lot hotter than that and still run like a turd.My jpx .21 run 230 and pass that thing like its standing still. Just my OP. lol.

you know reedy is based on an OS right? i didnt know that till recently when i was talking to a guy that runs them.


also mine runs around 220 and it flies at any temp i run mine a little rich on bottom to tame down the ballistic power on bottom so i dont get as much wheel spin.

To me OS is a lame duck,and these reedys are even weaker than a OS.
