Woops! I didn't mean to imply that I thought anything was wrong with an RTR class. I'm mostly just amazed that you have a scene with enough participants to support multiple 1/8 classes. Must be a big club! I think that that's cool, it keeps the expereinced guys and the newbies happy (a tough trick).

the C4 is 2 generations behind what is current now...the C5 came after it and the C6 is the newest version. RB's typically cxan run forever if you keep replacing parts.

Darn right,
I have the newest version C6BB which is so powerful it is in my Jammin CRT Truggy. But for Buggy this is the end all combo...

I know it is pricey but if you replace the Connecting Rod after a gallon and a half you should be able to have race level performance for 5-6 gallons. RB is nitorious for their longivety. I wouldn't buy anything else.

But if you are on a really tight buget than I would suggest this...
http://www.acehardwarehobbies.com/2....oducts_id=2870

It is the lowest price RB that will give you great power throughout the powerband...

If you want a little better than here...

I used the predisesor to this one and it was a great backup and had amazing top end.....
http://www.speedtechnitro.com/ebprod...nid=67&id=6572

You can get cheaper mills but nothing last longer than RB....IMHO...
yes I have heard stories of some OS's and NR's lasting a long time but not consistantly... in .21 cases..
I would say if you are going economy wise...go for the last one I suggested...

Plus Speedtech gets it out quick to ya...

Hope that helps,

i have the answer to your question. Go Technologies. Go tech has set up with a u.s. dist. www.racefactorindustries.com and will be selling engines shortly, plus you can get a good deal if you pre order one right away. the engines are as strong as any rossi, rb, or o.s. for quite a bit less. mileage is also very good with these engines expect to go 7 1/2min. between pit stops in buggy. the engine is right in your price range and it will give you the performance of those high end engines. plus it is a 5port engine so it will suit pretty much all u.s. tracks. you will not go wrong giving them a try.

also i heard they are looking to sponsor a couple midwest and east coast drivers so if you have your resume in order i would send it to them. If your not ready to be sponsored you can apply for their contingency program and have a chance to win free engines + cash no matter what class you race.

Davidka:

If your RG is in good shape and you can tune well just put a 14 tooth clutch bell on it (for a buggy). It will be ballistic and give you all the top end you'd ever need. I know that from experience as my son races a old Kyosho 7.5 with a 14CB and RG on a track with a 170' straight and he is a missle on all parts of the track.

I still have my RG and run it a fair amount (it's a little tired) but I prefer a VZ-b or Collari B7 these days.

I still like the RG and it still has enough power to get it done but at bigger races the thing I miss from my higher end mills is fuel economy. It is nice to pit at 8 minute intervals instead of 5 during 30 minute mains.

Nice? An 8 min motor is all but essential!
