B6 is smooth, B5 is really snappy. B6 is controllable in a buggy, B5 is not.

A b5 is controllable in a buggy, just not as smooth as a B6. The b6 is also better on fuel mileage. If you like a smoother motor period, whether its buggy or truggy, you can go with the B6. I'm personally running a B6 in buggy AND truggy right now, which helps me with throttle control.

I'm running the B5 in my buggy with the 2057 pipe. I just put in carbon shoes also so we will see how much that tames the low end grunt.

There are TWO vary devoted threads you can skim through, and get all the answer you need. They are on the 1st page 90% of the time and they would be more than happy to answer these questions.

Good luck, and you can't go wrong with a werks

I have both the B6 and the B5. I ran the B5 in my buggy for a while until the B6 came out. The B5 in the buggy is really snappy and has a lot of bottom end. Currently I run the B6 with a Werks 2013 pipe in my buggy and it is really fast. It has slightly smoother bottom end which helps with wheel spin in and it puts the power to the ground very nicely. It has very good mid and top end, nothing will pull you down the straight. I run the B5 with a Werks 2013 in my truggy and the bottom end is really helpful in getting it moving quickly. You will see nice run times out of both motors, slightly more in the B6.

I would advise you go out and read both threads on the B5 and B6, and you will notice that Ron from Werks is on there almost daily helping people out.

Good luck,

Tim

B6 for buggy, B5 for truggy...why, because that's how they were designed. Play w/ gearing, pipes, and clutch set up to acheive the feel you want but start off w/ the right one. Not that you can't get there w/ either but you'll have an easier time if you start w/ the right platform. Oh and read the threads, TONS of info....

I just bought a new WERKS engine and had to choose between the B5 and B6 . After reading the WERKS threads I found out that Ron said the B5 is what works best for truggy. So I listened to the man that knows whats up with his engines best . Its that simple.
B5- Truggy
B6- Buggy

Thanks for picking up one of our engines! If you ever have any questions please feel free to ask!!! Let me know what you think once you get some fuel through it!

Regards,

Ron

Yes the motor already comes shimmed for 30% nitro. You wont have any problems clearing triples with the B6 2013 combo. ive been running the same combo now for about a gallon and i know you wont be dissapointed.
