I run a Reedy with a 2039 tuned pipe and I really like the performance and runtime.

Novarossi 21 Plus 4 is another great engine, I've ran one last year.

OS, you can go wrong but they are a little pricey

OD, I only good words about this engine

GO, seems that their problem with the carb are things of the past. They are also good engine for the money.

There are sooooooooooo many choices in .21 engines in the 200-250$ range.

I haven't been on A-main for a while and was recently looking, there are a ton of good motors around the $200.00 mark.

I recently modded a Odonnel motor, the crank was really soft, not sure if it was just a bad one or if they are all that way.

I agree on the radical option. gotnitroonline.com Dave will take care of you and treat you right. And if the ton of power isn't enough the awesome shaped heads they run will seal the deal.

its the R2, its the only pipe they have..... thats really odd, almost everyone is getting 9-11 min with that pipe. i dont have that pipe so i run the JP3 and pit at 7.5 min and with the dynamite 053 pit at 9 and can pit at 10 if behind. im currently not running the OD SS, trying to wear out my old engines first. but do you know what plugs he uses? and what fuel?

Of course it is, because they are running it so it has to be right? I can say, i hated OS till this past weekend.

O'Donnell 20%, and I believe OS P3 plugs. He tunes by temp and tries to keep it under 210, I think he's running decently rich.
