I also like 21's in my SC8. BUT, of all the 21's I've ever witnessed die early deaths, pretty much all were VSPEC's.. They make good power, but I personally would be wary - especially of a used one.. If it were between a used VSPEC and the new stock engine, I might go with the stock 28 just to be safe..

Power-wise the stock engine will be good for drifting and bashing around. The VSPEC would have more top end.

Don't forget too - with the VSPEC you need a starter box. And turbo plugs, and preferably a matched pipe..

I decided to stick with the stock engines. Maybe when I strike it rich in the mines, I'll get a .28 OS.

The AE Pro .28 stock rtr engine is actually a pretty nutty mill. It tunes well too, and is pretty good on fuel consumption. Personally Id stick with the new stock mill and pass on the used .21. Throw on a good pipe like an OFNA 086 and watch that SC8 fly!

The V-SPEC will kill a Pro.28 in any contest and get better run times
doing it. Get the V-SPEC and a TT2035 pipe set.

And yes you will need a starter box as there are no rotostart options
for the V-spec.
