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.

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

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.
