best bang for the buck is a Go tech .21 5port its priced at 199.99 and is a 5 port top of the line racing engine, The U.S. distributor also offers a contingency program and the engines can be found at all the large internet stores. The engine will run all day against $300 engines its easy to tune reliable gets great mileage and has good longevity. The best deal in buggy racing today.

- Werks Teamline B3
- Novarossi Rex R21BF
- RB Concepts S3
- Axe Rossi Mamba
- OS .21VG

All of those engines are very good and in your price range. Good luck with your purchase!

VG is a nice motor and at 129.00 you cant beat it. It idles great and is easy to tune.

We ran 2 t21bf's last summer, ran awesome. My son ran his in his Crt truggy, he won some races against Werks b7, Rb c6, etc.

I just finished breaking in my VG. It doesnt have the power my OPS has but it still has plently. A guy at our track is running a VG in a truggy and it runs great.
