Ron, your best bet will be a novarossi engine, very reliable, and for a easy to tune engine they are one of the easier engine to tune and they hold thier tune better than most. Just keep in mind Ron it will take some track time to learn the right way to tune any engine !

THE DUDE!

I second that motion. The Picco's are some what punchy in my opinion. I ran them all last year. Most picco's require a little fatter on the low end. If your not used to tuning this way A picco can be troublesome. Pound for pound I like the power band of the Novarossi. Great power and extremely smooth thru out the powerband. If I had a second choice it would be the OS line the Spec II looks promising. What ever you decide on any of the club members would be more than willing to help you get a tune on your engine. Hopes this helps

The difference between offroad 21's and onroad 21's is Off road 21's are more tuned towards the low end of the RPM range. Onroad 21's have the best of both worlds. Just expect an offroad 21 to have great low end power but not mind blow top end. Honestly I think you will be okay.

P5 is a great buggy engine, lots of torque with good top-end (by buggy standards). On short tracks, there would be no down-side. I have run buggy engines in 1/8 on-road before (being a tight-wad, trying to save a buck). On one car, I could not get the two-speed adjusted. The RPM was to low for the available adjustment. Heavier springs were required. In general, a buggy engine will give less RPM, more torque(actually less torque, but it occurs at much lower RPM so it feels like more), and more fuel economy.
The on-road .21s have more advance for exhaust timeing (higher port/opens sooner) and more advanced induction port timing. The on-road engine will produce more peak torque/HP/RPM and fuel consumption.
If you run larger pinions and make apropriate adjustments to your centax and 2 spd, you should be OK. Even with the taller gearing, you may not have long enough legs for the bigger tracks.
