I have a few friends that ran the dinamite last season, the motor is afordable and makes power but it does not seem to last long under race conditions, and the guys running them are some of the fastest in Canada (Sprucewood team losi racing), granted they are a sponsored team and this season they will be running the new Orion MT motor. Do not know about the Werks.

a buddy of mine was running the B5 last weekend in his truggy and he absolutely loves it! I am debating between the B5 or the O'donnell SS for my buggy! I have heard the dynomite Platinums are good for about 2 to 3 long race days, i dont really know because i have not found one guy that runs it.

Any opinions on yhe O'donnell SS .21?

Eb mods js engine will be the best engine for your dollar, I know people who only bought 500$ speeds that got this engine and say it out performs the speed on any track they go to and iv personally seen one that had 9 gallons on it still going strong so ur best bet is that engine I no it's my next engine. Remember tho u will hear it's tiawan but Ed personally went there and had every material he wanted put in that engine so it is a high quality mill.

Here's a link to the one on amain it's 230$ but I'm sure if u shop around u can find one a little closer to the 200$ mark.

I would recomend the OFNA JL 21...$177.00 at Nitrohouse...its a wickedly fast easy tuning engine...has excelent idle quality and a very wide tuning window, it also has very good track manners with smooth throttle feel and instant idle down off the jumps........ Very advanced engine for the money, and a very easy to tune engine at that......

I am offering a special on Clockwork modified JL .21's... $250.00 .... this includes a stuffed crank, and a hand fitted piston...the engine will require almost zero breakin and will operate at peak power almost right off the bat.. It runs well on OD 97 plugs and seems to like quite a few tuned pipes, with the JP 3/4 being the best overall so far...if you want to know more PM me !

My engines are fast !!! very very fast.....The modded JL would make that Dynamite .21 look like it was in reverse....Chances are you would have a very hard time finding a stock offroad .21 at any price that will hang with my JL
