Default which engine?

I have been looking at a few different engines... I've read pretty good things on all of them but I am wondering which would be your first pick. Right now I am thinking...

RB .21 S3 ECONO
Nova Rossi .21BF
Werks .21 3 port

in no particular order...

Also if I did need parts, who would be the cheapest? Which company there has the best warranty program? Who sells what engine the cheapest?

Thank you,
Aaron

Go motors are the best value and as fast or faster then the ones you listed. also a 5 port is 199 and a 7 port is 219. buy them from A main hobbies. to get more info on the motor go to racefactorindustries.com they are the us distributor. Russell is the owner and will respond to any email you send him through his website.

For the money the RB and the nova are the way to go. You cant beat italian built motors period. They run perfect and will last alot longer than taiwan recycled cans

Is it worth the extra money to get one that is modified?

all of those motors are excellent.

I run a Werks Team Line B3 for indoor racing and LOVE IT. Extremely easy to tune, runs like a top and has a lot more power than I expected! I ran a tank through a friends' Eight who has a V-Spec and I only felt a *bit* more on top, both engines are tuned properly.

I like it so much I bought another one

I first got the OS VG to save some money, it was treated kind but lasted
1 gal and was replaced with the Hot Mod 21bf and is alot more fun to drive,
it just has a good feel to it.
