Default Best budget .21 in (150-200$) range

Hey guys,Let me know what you think is the best .21 engine in the 150-200 dollar range because i might be replacing the stock .21 in my losi 2.0 rtr buggy. or keeping it.

speaking of the losi RTR how do you like it? Im looking for a new buggy and like the losi rtr or the team (not sure ) also looking at RC8b and Mugen but those are a bit pricey ... the rtr seems like a good deal what do you think .. I do have a radio and engine already .. just no pipe and starter .. so it would be a bit more for a pro .. plus i wont get a engine

Werks B5 hands down!! The Nova .21 bf is a good motor but is nowhere near the power and rpm of the B5. There is nothing that can touch a B5 for $199 for power, mileage and reliability. Its the total package

Default buggy

Well my job getS them new for 550$.I like the buggy because my freind bought one and put the losi re10 pipe on it and put the turbo head conversion on it and when i tuned it for him it flies,and also getting him 11 minutes on a tank and the motor broke in very nice and the radio is pretty cool with the telemetry.And the car has minor differences from the rtr and the raceroller.IF you look at what i have in my signature you'll see i don't need all the stuff the car is coming with but when you buy the pro it cost way more.You could also sell the radio if you don't need it,The stock servos, and maybe the stock pipe.I'm getting it because all i will be upgrading is the pipe and the servos which i already have and maybe the engine.In short get the car and have fun with it because it is such a steal.My job might be able to get you one over the phone with the shipping and everything so you don't have to pay 629.99 on amain.

Ya, novas are good but I am not into the 1-1.5 gallon break in and replacing rods because the pinch is so tight it beats up the other components. The .21bf is ok if your track doesnt have any big straights or big difficult sets but truly" i have one" the power and rpm is lacking. The B5 has more power than most and is reliable, takes about 1/2 gallon to break in and has no bearing or rod issues, Which I think a lot of that is due to some engine's overly excessive pinch.

URGH that box sucks,I've had four of them already and the motors burn out and the only way to get power out of them is if you put lipo's in it or uprade to 12awg wire.Good truck but i think he looking for a buggy.
