Lightbulb Need good engine.Help me decide.

I need a new engine to replace what I am currently running in my K2 buggy.I am looking for good reliable power with some nice top end and good torque.I am not looking for high$$$$ engine but I am not going to rule out Top end engines.
Let me know what you would suggest with which pipe and why please.

Hi INFERN0,

I would suggest the REX 421B Motor...
I recommend this motor because it is nothing less than a
POWERHOUSE ! ...... Just unbelievable !

Plus, for the money, it's a "Great Buy" ....

Hmm any of the Rossi based P5 engines look pretty good.It is hard tho to decide on the brands like RB , Crono, Rex , Top and Novarossi because they are all essentially a Rossi.WS 7 II looks like a kickass engine as well I hear the CMB mac is pretty good too.

had a P5 it was great cost me $280

getting a ws7 2 for my new car cost $230

P5 is the bottom end king
ws7 supposed to be great top end

also hearing alot of buzz about new nova 421B always good things

top end engines are probably a better idea cheap engines usually act like cheap engines

the ws7 2 is only costing me $230 thats a really good price for a top end .21 engine IMO

i dont see any reason to go cheap when there are good choices out there in that price range

I actually just picked up a WS7 II.Figured it will be as good if not better than the WS7.I have both the 9863 and the 9886 pipes.Will they both be good with this engine or are they just better suited to certain tracks?

the 63 is a bottom to midrange pipe and the 86 is a midrange to top end pipe

i would think that most tracks the 63 pipe would be better because it should give more bottom end power

in most cases you match a engine that has top end like the ws7 2 with a pipe that gives it more bottom end like 53 or 63 and vice versa a bottom end engine like P5 with a top end pipe like 86

i plan to run the ws7 2 with the jammin pipe with the reinforced stinger it supposed to be a bottom to midrange pipe

i also have a waller adapter that i might try if i want more bottom end power

i think the ws7 2 will be easier to drive than my old P5 because it was almost too powerfull on the bottom end and it was hard to get enough traction
