I am a Novarossi Guy, but depending on your tuning expirience you might be better off with a Ninja/OS as the tuning window is wider than the novarossi.

Check out the JS Racing/ EB Mods engine

I just picked up a full mod version for $330 from Joe Alessi at lucky7rc. Everyone is saying that this engine rocks.

Pretty much any of the mills mentioned will serve you well. However, I don't know where you race or who with, will you be able to get help in person? If not, I'd toss two mills at ya. The first, already mentioned is the EB mill. You can't beat the customer service that Joe will be able to offer
Second, take a look at the new Alpha Plus engine thread. Several RCPro Team drivers post there and are also very happy and willing to offer to help out.

Novarossi P5XLT w/ 41021 manifold/9853 pipe.

Will haul the Jammin' with some authority.

Swap to 9901 if you need a little more mileage.

i wouldnt get a vspec because they are discontinued. i run a vspec in my buggy and a jammin JPX 21 in my truggy. i run jammin x2 buggy and truggy and i prefer the JPX 21 in both but im just waiting for my vspec to die then ill be getting another JPX 21. i got 9+ min a tank in a buggy in the MUD with the JPX and it temped at 217. great cheap engines that will last. i run 20% in the JPX because that what the manual says to run unless you add a shim and it will just about hit the wing if you just hammer it out of the corner.

Cool

I would say get a Werks B5 .21
AWSOME power band all the way across, easy to tune & GREAT customer service.

Also, for $199.00 for a racing engine. You cant beat it.

I think this is the best deal out there right now, the new Go Gx motors are really good.

The combo with a pipe, plug, extra rod, for under $240.00. I am going to start selling Alpha motors and Js also, hope to try those out soon.

Default FMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Novarossi p5.....yes, but the FMS -7 is supposed to be the os killer, fixxin' to get one! I've looked for a good .21 for my x2 crt. since the race season ended, and have talked to MANY, MANY top drivers, (local, and distant), some NR hardcore, some indifferent to brand, and an overwhelming majority say; novarossi FMS,FMS,FMS,FMS,FMS,FMS,FMS,.FMS!




**I'll let ya know.**
