C5 is more expensive, has gobs of top end. I race with a guy who likes his OS V01B more than his C5 because it has no torque. The WS7II is an improved version of RBs main offroad buggy engine. It has lots of torque but doesn't have the top end RPM of the C5. I personally think the WS7II is a better buggy engine.

they are both really good engines, but it also depends what buggy you are gonna be puttin' it in, and if you are gonna race on a tight or large track. The C5 has ballistic top end and torque can be made up by gearing and clutch adjustment/combos...also using the right pipe can/will do the trick

A BIG BIG NO NO. Those 'carbon fiber' splash guards will break after a couple hard jumps. Just stick to the plastic ones.
