Default What engine fits my current set-up best????

Currently I have an X1CR pro, JP-2 hard anno. pipe, Ofna blue aluminum clutch shoes, Mugen 1.1 clutch springs, stock jammin' flywheel, and stock Jammin' 13 tooth clutchbell (obviously this can be changed).. I will be racing on a large fairly open track with approx. 180 ft. straight. I could also occasionally goto a small indoor facility that has approx. a 100 ft. straight and is fairly tight.

I've narrowed my choices down to 2 specific engines which further give me at least 5 choices.......

Right now I'm looking at:

RB Concepts S7II or the Nova based P5.... which would be the better choice and why??? Currently I leaning towards the S7II because it seems to be the best bang for the buck at $230....

Further more--

IF the S7II is the WS7II worth the extra dough (approx. $70 more)????

If the Nova based P5... is there any real difference between the Novarossi, Top, and Rex versions other than the choice of cooling head colors??


I'm not really concidering modified versions yet because I wanna learn to drive and race my buggy before I need the extra power....


Also would it be adviseable to purchase the JP-1 pipe for the smaller track????

since u race on both small and large track go with the p5 for $250 mark/

the s7 is sensitive to clutch and pipe setup to get it haveing great bottom end. not to say its bad, but just not as good bottom as the p5.

I would also have to recommend the P5. There arent many significant differences between the Nova based P5 motors, but a few companies use different carburetor parts and different sleeves. The JP B5-N is a great 5 port motor to start with, if you have the money for it.

I would recommend the P5 over anything though, just because it has the best overall powerband. You can use the Jammin JP-2 pipe on the larger track to get all the top end out, and then I would DEFINATELY recommend the Jammin JP-1 on a smaller indoor track. I race at a small indoor track (www.charlotterccenter.com) and all the fast guys are running thr JP-1's.
