Unhappy Hello, I'm new to Nitro R/C with a HPI R40

Hello, I'm new to Nitro R/C . I just picked up a HPI R40 kit w/RSX body and hpi black tuned pipe for $150 on ebay . And now it's finally assembled... I need a motor.. I was looking into a budget minded motor, sice I will be racing @ a track.. more like a parking lot basher.. The motors I was looking into are the following: These are all on ebay for under $100 hopefully. What do you recommend for my set-up?

Trinity Picco XP12 Outlaw Turbo .12 Engine - New TP584

SIRIO.12 S12-T5 AF 2.1CC EV03 ENGINE

OFNA PICCO .12

Hyper .12 / ofna

Fantom Racing .12 Nitro Engine Non Pull , SG - #FANF1011

Please be gentle, I'm a n00b.

Thanx in Advance.

Sirio engines aren't for new people... they require a lot of experience// try OS 12 TZ... its fast, durable and reliable....
