Default WERKS B5 or REEDY 121vr Still can't decide?

What are your opinions for Truggy and buggy? Thanks for your time guys. Buy the way mostly racing on tracks that dry out and a little dusty, no blue grove tracks and using the 2035 pipe

Well they are both good engines, the B5 has got a lot more power than the reedy and runs cooler. And I dont own one but 2 of the guys I race with do and I have driven there rigs,and they both have had them for about 4 months and 5 gallons and already had to rebuild them. The werks will go at least 8 gallons if taken care of. One of mine has 5 gallons on it and it still has awesome compression. PLus the B5 is cheaper. BUt it all about what you like.

I know folks with both, it isn't even close. Between those 2, get the Werks. And check out the Alpha Plus engines available from RC Pro Products.

I've owned both of these engines. Get the B5! Pair it with a Werks 2013 and an OD97T plug and your golden!

B5 for both. Its got top,bottom,reliabiltiy and runtime. What else is there? and I think its always smart to stick with 1 engine instead of 2 differernt ones. That way you can know 1 engine extremley well and know the tuning characteristics.Instead of having 2 different animals.
