Thumbs up

Get a Novarossi bf 21 2000 limited with an ofna 086 pipe and header all for
under $200. That engine is a great buy at around 150.00, it is strong and it will last along time if you take care of it. I have one that now has over 4 gallons and still has great compression.

i would really reccomend the Jammin JPX.21 its a bit more than the nova but it has a lot of power! i love mine. great engine. theres guys at my local track running them and getting 12 plus gallons out of them. i just ordered a ofna 053 pipe for it as well so i can get better run time with it

I dont plan on changin my pipe. I have a JP3 already in it with a LRP 28 Pullstart but i wanna get a bump start motor since i have a bump box for my sc8. Makes no sense to have one pull start and one bump start.

the jammin motor and jp-3 pipe match up real well.

+ on the nova .21 bf it good for bashing or racing and it rocks on a short dirt track with a dynomite 86 pipe on it ,one thing though that might aggerate u is that itatian engines are tight as a bitch when they are new so get a heat gun and put the piston all the way down when your done running for the day
its got good power

Novarossi N21bf with a dynamite 086 pipe.

Mine didn't have any more pinch than any other decent engine. Way less than a Vspec. Just make sure you heat it up.
