Default Opinions on good .21 Onroad engines??

Going to be in the market for a new engine for my MRX-3. My price range will be maxed out at 500 bucks. I really don't want to have to spend that much. Is there anything out there cheaper than 500 that will hold up to the pricier engines, longevity and performance wise? Thanks for any input..

Oh wow that is a good deal, and with a pipe too for 400 = nice. But how does that engine compare to say the monster Nova 35PLUS21?

It can run with the best out there in my opinion. I currently run one, I switch back and forth between it and my Murnan.

You might be interested in the O.S. VZ-R Ver II. I currently have on my MRX-4 and it's a beautiful power plant. Cheap to buy, available parts, and long lasting.

Here's a link:

Good luck..

RB C6 is a fast, durable engine. If you are brave, you could try the RB Xenon-R. That engine is a missle, but if you are not experienced with the needles, you can hurt it easily.
