After blowing my motor in the last race I've decided to get a new one. I race at Norcalhobbies in the Bay Area. Which motor would you recommend for that track. I was told the RBM3. Is it just as good as the OS and Keepon?

Hi. The M3 would be a great choice. My modified keepon is awesome too. Either would be a fine choice. Both engines have a lot of power everywhere, and are reliable.

Thank you. I'm leaning towards the RBM3. Would it make a difference if I got the balanced version?

Can't speak for the keep on, but that MM RBM3 is killa! I never saw a motor that could push a car faster then it wants to go. Its power can not be overstated. And its VERY reliable!

I picked up an RBM3 dual balanced this summer and it is by far the best engine i have owned! super power, great fuel efficiency, and tunes really nice. I like the RB 2668 pipe with it its a killer combination! I have about 3 gallons through it and its still super tight I will be attending the Nitro Challenge in Kissimee next week looking forward to another great weekend with it.

Default 2013 US NITRO WORLD CUP

I wanted to let everyone know the performance the RBM3 balanced has proven to me. After this weekends trip to Full Throttle for the US Nitro World Cup I was approached numerous times by many racers curious as to the Engine Pipe combo i was running due to its serious Power I was flexing! Runtime was perfect, Tuning was a breeze, and I didnt blow any plugs all weekend! Perfect combination to put me in the A main no problem. If anyone is unsure about their decision allow my experiences to help you choose a winning combination. GO WITH A MURNAN M3 Balanced!!!

All his RBM3 versions are stupid!!
Mine blew up this week at Kissimmee, it was most likely on its way out, had around 5 gallons on it. I would recommend it to anyone

Special thanks to Uriah for all his personal help at the US Nitro Open. I purchased a RBM3 balanced just for this race and he got me up to speed and the motor is ballistic. There were 5 Murman Mod motors in the TC top ten so it's all up to the driver when you got Murnan Power. I'll be getting another one for next season.

Both are great engines. The RB has a little more top end, where the Virtus has more out of the corners. The RB is slightly better on fuel consumption.
