there are alot to chose from. what do you plan on doin with it race or bash?
also if your racing what type of track will it be on long straights tight and technical. check what you local fast guys run. but the werks b6, alpha plus z852, od 21ss, reedy .21, nitrotec 21r all seem to be good and there are many more im sure someone else will add to the list.
