I agree. My brother has a OS VG 21 and it is a pretty good engine for the money. It has a claimed 2.0 hp and I have seen it holding it's own against several different engines that have hp claims of anywhere from 2.5 to 3 horses.

Nova N21B, Picco P7 EVO2, OS V-Spec or Nova P5 based engine. Good solid engines that have been around. The Picco has a slanted exhaust port, so you need a matching header.

The OS VG is nickel sleeve, so it isn't as tough as the ones listed above.
Kyosho, Mugen Seiki, Maxy's Fuel, KO Propo
O.S., Ninja JX, Novarossi, RMV

Nv529, look on the post with people running what you may want to get, they will give the best info, as for what i would recommend, the new 08 GO 3R for the price to performance factor, can't beat it.

Picco's carry the same market value but cost much more to purchase... So my choice to run Go was purely financially motivated, likely the exact same reason you sell GO engines as well...You make very good money on your motors for the time you spend that you know you could not make offering Picco's......
Very good point!
