Default need help picking a buggy engine

I would like some advice on an engine/ pipe combo under $300. I need something for smaller tracks that will last me a while.

Go Tech 5port Race engine (199.99) jp-1 or jp-2 pipe. (79.99) Perfect combo and comes in right at your price range.

Default motor

the nova n21bf is a awesome motor for small tracks especially. The jp-2 pipe is also gfood for this motor and you can get them both for under 250. I have one that has 10 gallons on it and it is still going strong. John

if you shop creatively, VSPEC and JP2, real creative and get an OS2050 pipe

otherwise, get the OS VG and JP2
