Default Mugen MBX6T Engine Experience

Hello,

I always think it's best to ask people with experience for their opinion. I just bought an mxb6t and I would like recommendations on an engine. I do not want to go all out and spend $400 bucks on a super fast engine, but rather a servicesable engine in the $150 dollar range that is solid and problems free.

Thanks for the help!

Serviceable engines would be in the $200 - $250 range. Don't think there are any $150 engines.

The Dynamite .24 engine falls in the $150 price range and I have been using one on a truggy. Excellent power and runtime is good.
The Ofna JL .21 also falls close to the $150 range.
Of course, these prices will vary with dealer but these are our current prices.

The Nova P5 is a monster truggy engine. It pulls hard.
