My son has the Nova .21 limited. You cant go wrong for $150.00. Has just enough power for him when he needs it. Easy to tune, never flames out and performs every time.

It has been a great engine.

There are so many engines on the market right now that it really depends on your budget. There are many great choices in the 200 range the werks b5, the alpha line, the nova bf limited and I think the nove P5 is right in there as well. Then there's the next level 300-400 where there are more great engines nova +4, nova toro, os vspec, ninja. I amsure I missed a few but these are all great performing engines. Just pick one and go with it.

I guess my B5's have super powers bc I pit at 12 in truggy and 10 1/2 in buggy on a large track. If all someone is getting from a B5 is 8 or 9 then they have the wrong pipe or a bad tune.

Throttle control has a lot to do with it too. 2 different drivers with the same car, same engine, same tune, same tires, etc. will get different runtimes.

Yeah throttle control - - - - but 4- 5 min - that is a BIG difference.

if you are a betting man. Like I am. OS vspec is the best way to go around the track and haul dirt behind your competitiors... If you want to break the bank. OS .21 speed is be best. I cant guarantee the performance. It depends on style what you aar driving at out the track. I'm happier with the os vspec on my Jammin. You cant go wrong. Want to save a buck. Go for OS vspec. If you are serious about winning and get into races with the big boys and girls. So from there. you know where to start from here. Good luck then.

I vote the Jammin 21 picco. I run only Picco and novarossi and love them. Novarossi may be a bit pricey for a first motor but the picco's are awesome mills.

One Note no mater what mill you get take it apart and inspect it before you put a drop of fuel in it. If everything looks okay clean it out just to be sure there is no metal shavings left in it. than put it back together and break it in. If you find a problem before you put fuel to it you will save yourself alot of time, money and headachs.

HaHa , no its not magic. Just an ole B5. Thats one of the reasons I got this mill is for run times, and of course, performance,reliability,and cost. But yep,I get 11min no prob. I pit at 10 just to be safe
