IMO the best cheap engine with more power than you will ever need i would go with the jammin JPX21 or the JPX28. i have an JPX21 and it is way more power than youll ever need. i have a vspec and and the JPX21 blows away the vspec. the vspec is a good bit harder to tune than the JPX21. i have seen one guy try and run a JPX28 on his truggy and the front wheels never touch the ground it was way way to fast. also with the JPX21 it gets good run time. this past weekend in the mud it got almost 10 min and it was running at 218 degrees.

depends on your driving style.........are you strapped or smooth?

I myself would go for a smooth/controllable setup

my pick for 1/8 AT would be:
Novarossi 21-4C: turbo combustion w/7.0mm restrictor
Novarossi 9853 super strong pipe
Novarossi 41005 header (the ] shaped header)
Odonnell 97T glowplugs
Byrons Gen 2 30% fuel

bottom line best would be an os speed 2. if you want totally the fastest, get a clockworked jpx 28 and throw some ceramics in there, you will be guaranteed fastest around...

I don't see how anyone can give a .21 the meanest and baddast engine title.

When I read this I was thinking.

Picco p3 .28
Jammin .28
RB 728/928

Modify any of these engines and be prepared to twist driveshafts and cvd's.

the key is reliabilty and driveability, i personal like the os speed II eb modded, 10+ minute tanks is great especially with an exhaust cooler, the price tag is not cheap but you get what you pay for

I understand that and I agree but the purpose for the engine was mentioned. So, naturally I thought of an all out rock shredding engine.

The os speed is the bomb race wise. You can't go wrong with that.

The consensus is that .28's are great power engines no doubt. However a great .21 has nearly as much power and will run circles around a .28 top end. Did we even bother to mention fuel consumption. I'll put these .21's up against any .28 not in any particular order. OS speed, RB C6 and Nova FMS these engines all have mad power and killer top end. NO .28 is going to touch them top end. And the aforementioned engines can practically equal any .28 for power.

A 28 will offer more grunt, but a 21 by it's nature, will rev higher. A 28 may accelerate quicker, but flat out it will be slower on the same gearing. Unless of course you run top speed gearing in which case the 28 will accelerate slowly, but have the power to run higher gearing.

Personally, I love a good 28 for bashing, but for racing, 21's are the engine of choice for me.

Money no object, It'd be a modded OS but life may be impeded.

I am waiting for my S852 Alpha to arrive. I think ability outweighs the power of an engine when you get to a certain point, and from what I've seen, the Alpha will do nicely.

Last year I ran a moded .28xz on a losi 2.0 with 15 clutch bell, and no one could keep up, Bottom or top end just crazy power, but your fuel economy will suffer, I was having fun by leting speeds go by me and then gun it, and blow by them. .28 are fun but fuel pigs
