Default What is the best RB for a buggy?

Strictly RB; what would you go with? I thought WS7 would take it but it seems a lot like the C6.

Thanks for the input!

Both are great. I love an S3 modded out the ass .

I'd probably go with the C6.

C6BBT or there new one (WS7 IV, I'm not sure if that's going to be it's name)

I raced against Tyler Vik (RB motor Driver) this weekend at a NorCal race, and he has been using RB's new motor. It has a ton of bottom, with good top too. Looked smoother then the C6 too. Not sure when it's going to be available, but just an option..

If you are on a budget the s5 rocks, gets on pipe fast and has a good top end and only costs around 230.00. If you have a little more money to spend I would get a ws7 on the c6, even more power everywhere, maybe too much with a c6. You cant go wrong with an rb, any of the 3 motors mentioned can easily go for 8-10 gallons of fuel if cared for properly.

I honestly cant believe anyone would recommend the c6 for a buggy unless you are a pro driver. C6 is a great motor but wayyyyyy to much power for a buggy for the average driver.

its too much power if you pull the trigger fully and expect it to not break loose. Everyone should learn throttle control... I had the C6BB in my 8ight and 808 and it was a match made in heaven Either way, any of the RB engines will be a good choice from the S5 and up. The S3 seems like to little power IMO.

It is a little wimpy stock. Not bad but not great either. Properly modded with a significantly raised exhaust port and some heavy duty crank work and you have a super cheap motor that will out run almost anything.

I'm going to the C6 in a 808, And planning to use a steel flywheel w/carbon shoes and 1.0 springs. I would think that would tame down the bottom, but I feel that I have good throttle control and not woried about the power. And I'm no Pro,,expert yes,, but no pro,,

The S5 is great engine for the price with a 2045 and RB short header I ran S5's this whole summer. The C6 w/2045 is a beast and for a buggy needs a 7mm restrictor that is my new Engine for the winter series.
