i went thru the same prob about a month ago and decided on the ninja for one reason was curious to see if the high rpm numbers posted would be noticable and there are but only on the back strait. it is a very reliable motor but now that i have it i would have just prefered to go with the name u can trust, when all else fails the nova will keep runnin.good luck

Hey,

Ive tried the Ninja and i found it quiete bad. low on power and to easy to drive.
You will find the Picco and the Jammin to be the same engine just different label.

Go the Novarossi!

hey guys, i think i have decided on just getting the jammin engine. ive realized i dont need a whole lot of top end. and i think this engine would have a little more top end than the p7. it seems to me that this engine is something in between having good bottom end and top end power. just for giggles, how is the top end on the p7? also, what is a good turbo plug to use on the jammin engine? thanks

Don't over look the Werks TLB7 or TLB3 for that matter. The customer service is second to none!

i was thinking about the b7, but the hobby shop where im getting a discount from doesnt sell those engines. if any of you guys are looking for a great place to buy stuff, got to kamikazercracin.com. that guy is great. he is even willing to go out to meet me at a track so i can buy the engine off him.

Check out the GO Team 5 port and 7 port engines available at TKO. These look to be excellent engines for the money. Anyone here ever use STS engines?

If you want raw power, a V-spec will deliver. I love mine!

The RB WS7 is a great engine....Butt a top end rebuild is 175.00 bones.....
The V-Spec Tunes easy.... and if you spend a few dolla's
on some ceramic bearings and some port work... you can run with the best of them.....

Just my 2-cents............

I run a Nova P5X in my buggy and that thing is fast,easily tuned and I don't know that I would want to try anything else because of the way the one I have runs. I know there are other good motors out there and that is just my expierence with that paticular motor.
