Either get the B5 or the Novarossi.

The B3 is a xlnt engine as long as the straight is not more than 150 ft it will be awesome. It has great bottom and mid like the B5 but less top. BUt unless you race where there is a long straight, it will be great and keep up with the best of them. The B5 is $50 more so if you are tight on cash and your track is very large. The B3 would be a great choice and just like the B5 they are reliable and get awesome runtime
