Are you new to the hobby? Are you good at tuning?

The reason why I ask is that there are alot of ENGINES out there. Some are great but takes a good knowhow in tuning to keep them running good.

Off the top of my head - for the price an OS VSPEC or the Ninja JX Series IMO these are well worth the price and will hang with what evers out there on the track.

Personally if you get into those tuned ENGINES you need to take in to accout of parts.

That's an awfully broad question, so you're gonna get a million opinions. What's your budget?

250? My money is on an OS VZB V-Spec.

I really like RB engines, but I haven't driven any of the new models:

You can get GREAT deals on the previous generation RBs on Ebay and get better deals on the V-Spec if you look hard enough.

The OS was the motor I was looking at so I might go with that. Unless someone can give me a good reason not to.
