I would also say that it's important that the engine you pick be able to run and stay in tune. I've seen another g/f of another racer go through the same thing. Trying to race, but not able to get decent power or the engine wouldn't hold the tune so it was very frustrating. In the end, I sold him a sirio that I wasn't using and then she started performing better, heck she even made the A main a few times.

Ive been trying some new motors like sts and have been very happy with them. I usually run RB motors but at $280 for a s7 its getting a little to pricey for me so decided to try something else. I recently have been running a sts D21T its modded from factory 5port turbo plug. I have 4.5 gallons of 30% sidewider thru it and it still has awesome pinch. Its not as fast as the s7 but every bit as durable and easy to tune. I got it from www.nitrocountryrc.com in Iowa for $170. This past saturday picked up the new team sts motor which has more mid to top end than the D21T and still reasonable for $190. Plus replacement parts are very reasonable.

Alot of people are recomending that Novarossi motor, that is what it looks like i might wind up going with. Still not 100% on it though. That motor is start box only correct?

That is the motor you want. Best bang for the buck period. It is a novarossi so if treated correctly it will last a LONG time. It will also preform, unlike alot of the other engines in it's price range. Another good one would be the RB S3 but in all reality they are basically the same engine, and the Nova is cheaper.

The limited edition only comes as a bump start model, and that is really what you want, but if you don't have a starter box, or want to invest in one, they do make a roto start version.

Novarossi for sure. 21BF. Very cheap, easy to tune and will last a while.

I do belive that is the motor i will be going with. I am going to use the roto start version because i already have several roto start guns but no start box and I am on a tight budget for this.
Thanks for the replies everyone

Default hello.

If you want my opinion I would go with that guys used mach 427 engine. I heard a lot of great things besides I am sure you could prob get it from him for like $65.00 shipped maybe a little more. also I have had racer that say the dynamite engines are easy to tune. plus that saves you allot of money with the wedding coming up. The other thing that would of helped people in your posts to is the amount your willing to spend. but good luck with your future wife and with racing

The GO 3 port sport is a good choice they hold a tune well and are cheap. I know a few guys who use them for practice mills and they get the job done. There is a guy on here somewhere who modded 1 and races it. Your lookig for pull or rotostart I guess? So the nova limited is out but looks like a good mill for a good deal too. the Picco 3 port sport is a good starter mill to I belive nova makes a beginner style pullstart mill to.

If you are worried about a engine having too much power just use a good digital radio then you can adjust the amount of throw the throttle servo has and as she gets better/more comfortable with it you can bump it up
