Take a look at the SWorkz S7. It is made by OS and is same as the speed.

If you would like to give one a try shoot me an email and I can point you to someone who can give you one and the ascendacny clutch at a great intro price. Save you a ton of money over a speed!

The P5XLT:

Or the Fusion X7:

The X7 will have slightly less bottom end hit, only in the *very* bottom end, and more top end, without sacrificing the midrange.

Pair with Nova 9901ss or 2096ss pipe; and 41021 manifold.

Don't get hung up on the published power figures.

The usable RPM range of the P5 is slightly lower than the +4 or the X7; however, it makes up for the slight lack of ultimate top-end with it's stellar bottom and midrange pull. Most tracks, you don't get to run it out the back door anyway, so the first guy to the flagpole wins and the P5 is excellent at getting you there first

From what I have seen at my local track, an Alpha or Werks will give more power than most can use.

I'm kinda thinking the p5xlt with a 9901 silencer and 41021 header now. This will give me excellent low end rip and excellent top end?

Great low/mid and you'll never miss the ultimate top end.

From the size track you described, it's not a long or open track, so no worries.

If you want all the greatness of a P5, along with some top end use the X7. It will forego a very faint amount of bottom end hit and have all the top you want.

Think of the X7 as a "P7" with a dollop of top end to sweeten the deal.

I would go with the an os speed vxb/zxb or ninja jx .21 bo1. I own all and they are very user friendly to tune even for novice guys coming into the hobby. I have tried 2 nova +4's and wound up selling them because I did not like the way they tuned vs my os engines. I will say that novas do run great and know plenty of guys who have had great success with them, they just did not suit me very well. And you dont have to pay sticker price for any engine unless you want to. Guys on the sales thread sale bnib engines below sticker price pretty often. I personally have seen bnib speeds and novas go anywhere from $275-$375 depending on how much seller wanted to deal. So dont be deterred by the $500 stigma associated with speed engines cause a $500 engine can be bought for $300 if your willing to look for it and that goes for any line of engines.

If you can find a bnib Ninja JX BO1a, I highly recommend this engine for anyone. Just a pure workhouse and damn good engine. Of all my engines, speeds included, my ninja has been the most consistent performer and still running strong till this day. Just my two cents, hope this helps. Good luck on your engine search bro

That Orion motor combo is the best out their with the pipe everyone want to run or the next best pipe to run. And the motor with the only slotted crank. If find a motor with that much with itipe, plug, extra shirt, case get it . $370 I think is the price

My Clocked P5XLT doesn't lack any top end at all...in fact most stock 7 ports would be chasing its tail on the top end !! it still has the classic P5 bottom end, plus we get a pretty substantial boost in runtimes as well.........All in all a really sweet engine at a a very affordable price ...

I was going to say, you dropped $900 on a chassis I don't think money would be a factor in your case lol.

It would just be silly to put in a budget engine in such an expensive buggy. As most have mentioned, go with either a top of the line Novarossi or O.S. Even modified, why not. Go the hamburger with the lot and get a CRE Bonito.

Have you built the kit yet? What's the quality like?

Sometimes I look at the price of those kits and think does anyone really buy them at that price? Well obviously they do.

Go here. It's a P5xlt tuned by Monty of Houstons engine Service. He will do it up right.

http://www.houstonsengineservice.com...18f54abfbb9ece


I like the 9853ss pipe with the medium bent Nova header...but most would say the round header with the 9901 pipe...I think the 9853 makes the most power, they all work great if it's a nova ...

You can't go wrong with the werks motor. The prices are great, the runtime is great, and you can't beat the performance.
