Default Which engine?

Just getting back into racing, I purchased 2 Hyper 7 buggies. I dont like the Hyper .21 3 port in it. I have been doing alot of reading on engines and with a budget I have narrowed it down to 3. I am impressed by the engines listed below, especially for the money
Which one would you guys say runs best, which one has more HP, Let me hear your suggestions.

Ofna Force .21 JL

Ofna .21 8 port race

Dynamite .21 Mach 2

Between those 2 I would go with the Ofna .21 JL.

The Force motor is made by Picco? When did they start that? Is it a Picco carb too?

The JL is made in Taiwan, its a full on race engine made by Force, first race engine seen from them for awhile and its a powerhouse of great quality. Nothing to do with picco.
I would stay away from the Hyper race.
Dynamite is a great choice, if you really want to save, but the JL is going to be more power.

A couple guys locally run the dynamite motor and for the moeny you can't beat the performance and fuel milage. The only other motor I would say to take a look at is the Alpha. They are right at $200 but are very impressive from what I have seen.

sounds like your price range is the 200s, the werks b5 is by far the most bang for the buck.

If you're looking in the 200s, you have to consider the Team Orion Alpha. You can see it here:

also, for a little more money the sirio STI on special is a screaming deal for 289 with two head buttons and ceramic bearings

Default I like the new nova engine...

The N.21 Rbf with the purple head. It's really nice for 145 dollars and it will last 8 gallons if you treat it well...
