Default Looking to buy a new .21 engine

I bought a Jammin XICR and I'm look'n to can the motor that came with it, what type, or brand of motor would you suggest?

I'm very interested in being on top of the competition, so I'd like to know especially since I'd like to race in the region 8 off road championship this summer, and a .26 wouldn't help me.

So, for the last time, which .21 engine is the best and why?

everybody i've talked to with one LOVES their SH .21. I don't have any actual .21s (my big block experiance is fairly limited to what sucks, LOL), so take that with a grain of salt.
*edit*
since this is the RTR i'm assuming, ANYTHING will be an improvement over that Force 26 power-wise, MHO.

Either a Novarossi P5 or 421B. The 421B has a little more top end than the P5, with a similar bottom end.

Regardless, a fast engine won't make you faster once you learn the track. I'd say for starters the P5 is great to have. Novas will last a bit longer than the RB's, but with that being said the RB's can last a while too. My suggestions are:

RB S7 II
WS7 II
P5

Well you can't compare car performance to engine performance really...aside from saying both are running good. Step it upto an RB, Nova, or Rex.
