i dont really know

i think the c5 may be an onroad engine

i know alot of guys running the ws7 and they all really like it

i think the c5 may be more powerfull

cant really go wrong with a RB engine i havent talked to any unhappy RB owners

i tried to get the rb ws7 before i bought the ofna picco 0-1 comp but it was very hard to find one every where i called was backordered

Hi Ron, glad to see you're possibly getting into offroad. It is a blast. As for a "Best Bet" engine. There really isn't one. Like Jason said, there are some great engines each with their own characteristics. For the price, I really think the OS V01B is great. Powerful low end to midrange torque. It's a really good engine for it's price. That's what I'm running. I actually got my engine from a guy on eBay for $199 brand new. The RBs are really good. High reving, high speed. Same for the Sirio.

Thanks for the info guys...

Rod,

Does the person still have more motors like that? Is that the
version that has the By-Pass thru the back plate? What do
you call that again? And what is that for? I know only all buggy
motors have that, huh?

By the way, where do you race your MBX at?

Jason,

Thanks for liking our Team Name. Good for your for being able to do that.
So far, it is still something I am working on doing..

I would go for a REX P5 engine....it has a lot of torque and very good mid and top speed. run it with a RB9886 tuned pipe then you're all set to go.......a good engine for bashing too is the OFNA"Race" engine. www.renegaderc.com has it for only $149.99
Good for club racing and bashing.... tons of power for the price.

Ron, do you mean the boost chamber? I really don't understand the theory behind it but I do see them a lot. For right now, I've just been practicing with my buggy at a fellow racer's house. Must be nice to have a track in your backyard. I'm trying to convince some of my friends to take a trip to KZ to actually race. I hear the track there is awesome.

Tambok - How's the racing out there? How many people show up for 1:8 buggy? $149 is a great price. I hear that engine isn't all of 2.7hp but for the money, it's a real bargain.

we had 60 racers last Saturday.......20 sportman and 20 pro buggys. It's cool to watch Greg Degani, Jeremy Kortz, Adam Drake, Chad Bradley, and the others run 1/8 buggys ......looks easy ....NOT. The track is awesome.....all air....like motorcross. They have starting gates already installed in the front straight.....way cool. You guys should come and race with us one of these days. It's $10 bring your personal transpoder...$5 to rent transponder....or you can just run without transponders and they will just type it in the computer.

Here's pics on the lates layout of KZ

Here's the front 200 ft straight going to a fast sweeper leading to a table top and a sudden single jump before you reach a 360 corner (tricky)

Believe me.....high priced engines in off road doesn't make your buggy clear the jumps....it's your tuned pipe and clutch setup. I've seen OFNA Hypers run like RBs, Novas, and OSs....you don't have to spend a lot of money on engine ...unlike on road. I'm getting that OFNA "Race" engine soon.

that looks like a really cool track

maybe if i can remember my camera this weekend i can get some pictures of our track here

i cant wait till sunday hope it doesnt rain so far forecast is clear

jwf-ronni it is alot easier to finish with a 1/8 scale i never broke a part of my mbx4xr during a race last year

i had clutch bearing failures and 1 engine failure and some things i should have loctited better come apart but no breakage

that is why 1/8 is so much fun i can spend my day talking trash and hanging out instead of wrenching and searching for setup like in onroad

most days all i have to do is charge my batteries before main and now with personal transponders race day is going to be a breeze
